Picture Prompt Plate #3

How could I resist doing a post for this week’s picture?
Thanks to Dakshali for providing the prompt

For virtually handicapped, the picture shows a girl covered with mud (her face,hairs, hands, frock) and holding a muddy puppy.

Oh. Hello Mummy.
It wasn’t my fault.
Rex got out and I had to save him from the puddle.
It was deeper than I thought and I got my dress dirty.
He’s OK though, isn’t he?
He’s only little and I didn’t think he could swim.
I was so frightened for him, and I had to save him. You know I did!
I’m sorry about my dress, especially it being Sunday and all, but I couldn’t let Rex drown.
You wouldn’t have let me drown in a dirty puddle, would you Mummy? Rex is only a baby.
Please don’t be cross. Please?
Rex is sorry too, and promises he won’t do it again.
Guess we’ll both have to have a bath now.

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.
