Sunday Writing Prompt “Wacky and Weird”

This week, Yves wants us to write about our own wacky and weird family factual or fictional (family can also be interpreted as a group of friends, pets, or the local wildlife).

I’ve often said I think I get on better with dogs than people.
Most dogs in the neighbourhood recognise me, and I have fuss and ‘leans’ in the street practically every day. I love it.
On one occasion, I had a complete stranger’s dog ‘protect me’ from another stranger by getting between us and growling at her, much to the amusement of its owner.

Maggie is our baby and we have imaginary conversations with her that make sense to us, but probably not to her.  She has her funny little ways as all pets do, but we wouldn’t change her. We spoil her rotten, but she gives so much back, it’s a small price to pay.

I’ve used the photo from the challenge as I have the perfect caption for it for my post:

‘I once caught a fish THIS BIG’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    roflmbo — your caption for the photo is hysterical! and so apt in suitability! 😀

    wonderful post Di – it’s so often true, we tend to engage and get on better with the 4-leggeds – better than humans, probably because the 4-leggeds are far less complicated, and honestly, they really don’t make any over-the-top, impossible expectations or demands.

    Great response Di, I so get where you are coming from.

  4. She deserves it because she is such a good girl =) One of my happiest memories is when I was a teen, sleeping on the lawn and when I woke up I found dachshund puppies piled up on top of me. The mom (a neighbor’s dog) came over to show them off to me. They were so cute!
