I am a Biscuit: a reblog for May 7th WOTD

Melanie has given us BISCUIT as her word of the day prompt today,

and this early post of mine immediately came to mind.
It didn’t see much traffic at the time, so maybe it will fare better today.
Sadly both dogs in this story are no longer with us, but then the event itself was over 30 years ago.

My sense of smell is very acute. In fact, it was a standing joke at home that I could smell freshly cooked sausage rolls from 200 yards. It was no good Mum trying to hide them as I would sniff them out and pinch one.

You know what they say. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and smells like a duck, it must be a duck. OK, I can buy that.

Those of you familiar with some of my posts know how much I like dogs. Imagine then the scenario of having one that isn’t exactly tolerant of other dogs, and suddenly introducing a puppy into the fold.

In this instance, we’d heard of a 15 week old rough collie pup about to be put down simply because the owner had grown tired of it. I didn’t hesitate and said bring 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! 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. Oh! ❤ I'm going to go read your original post. May I say very clever use of the word today! I wondered if people would find it 'too plain' after some of them I've come up with. I'd totally forgotten the canine connection and will have to provide biscuits to Sir Ziggy to make up the lapse!

  2. I found your re-share post just great!! The comments were closed, so I’ll compliment you here if I may. To smell like a dog biscuit is the highest form of compliment our fur kids can pay us. I’ve never had a doggie snuffle my pocket (unless there was something in that pocket of a food nature), but I do get more than my fair share of dog kisses and long sniffs at my shoes and clothing. Such a sweet post was your puppy and new mum post. And clever you! Thinking of how to introduce the ‘baby’ to his mam. Aw. ❤

    • We stopped carrying biscuits in our pockets as Maggie was more intent shoving her nose in them rather than looking where she was going. She walked into a post and fell off the pavement more than once, bless her.
      I have another story about labradors lining up for their treats when we pulled up in the car park, but I didn’t know one so couldn’t treat any! All was well when the owner puffed her way out of the bushes relieved to see her dog sitting patiently with the rest, so I asked if she could have a treat, and she said of course. They were all very civilised. Maggie got hers first of course.
      Oh and as an aside, Barney was originally called Biscuit by the kids on the farm where we got him.

  3. I enjoyed your re-post. It held up very well.
