Sunday Writing Prompt 14th February

Love is in the air, and Michael’s prompt today is to write a love story.

We had always wanted Maggie to have pups, but could never find a nice daddy, and our vet advised us to be aware of size of our chosen sire. It didn’t quite come to asking an owner if I could measure their dog, but we did have some interesting conversations.
I wrote this when I first started blogging which didn’t see much traffic at the time. It’s not a bad piece IMO and as it turned out, Arlo was not the only one our girlie became smitten with.
When we were on the boat, she fell for the charms of Hugo, a black cockapoo, who she would torment and flaunt her assets in his face every time they met. It was embarrassing, she was such a hussy, but Hugo was another ‘suitor’ more interested in balls of another variety, this time golf balls. We would find them in abundance on our walks round the avenue, up around MSM’s property, and on occasion on the marina itself as his owners had an endless supply.
Even when Hugo had the chop, Maggie would not be deterred.
It was strange though that it never worked the other way. There were a couple of passing sniffs of interest, but her ladyship was having none of it.
She and Barney would have made lovely pups though, but then if we hadn’t lost him, we would never have had her. I hope she found him at Rainbow Bridge.

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.

  1. We’ve started to think the same about Captain Chaos. Don’t think he’s a natural dad…..

    It seems that Maggie would have been a wonderful mother… and made pretty puppies too!

    • We are certain she would have been a lovely Mummy. We just couldn’t find a nice daddy when she was younger. Hubby was working on the docks as security and the dog handlers showed an interest in any puppies as she had the best genes…… intellegence of her collie Mum, and the sniffer of her springer Dad. Sadly not to be though.

    what breed was Maggie again? It would have been nice to have pups from her, but I am lolling at the golf ball scenario! xo
