Imaginary conversations

I’ve done these before, the first of which worked out quite well. You can read it here

Picture from google.

The above picture was used in a Tale Weaver post from November 2017, which I’ve just read again and it made me smile, so I think worth a look.
I was going to write about Maggie and a sheep following a comment on my blog earlier, then realised I’d already done that too!
So for new readers, this was my imagined conversation between them, but you can read the original here

Sheep: I’m a sheep, what ya gonna do about it?
Maggie: I’m a dog and could chase you if I wanted.
No you can’t. I’m in a field, protected by these wires, and there’s a ditch between us.
So what? I’m part collie part springer spaniel, expert at agility, fast, a high jumper and I’m smart.
Wanna prove it?
Nope. Don’t have to.
Why’s that?
You’re in a field.
I’m not. I’m free to chase whatever I want when I want.
And you’re not it.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

  1. This made me smile 😀

  2. Maggie is really clever isn’t she? The sheep? Is a sheep. Being a sheep these days isn’t something to be that proud of, is it? Cute idea Di! ☺

    That Maggie really provided a “burn” to the poor sheep. I’ve worked with sheep and they are not the brightest animals. But they are easy to handle… But I prefer dogs to sheep any day!!

    • I prefer dogs to people!! My uncle bred sheep for several years, then had a bad season of still births and rejections. Even skinning the dead lambs and putting them on the rejected babies didn’t con the ewes in a lot of cases. I found it all so very sad and glad I didn’t have to witness it as I would have broken my heart.

    Maggie had a clever come back for the sheep! (or should I say you did?)
