The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 20, 2021

I haven’t done one of these for a while, but Linda’s prompt this week is very close to my heart.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “black, gray, and white.” Use one, use ’em all. Bonus points if you use all three. Have fun!

We have often said that if dog licences were still necessary, we could not afford a colour one so it was just as well Maggie was black and white.

As the years progressed, she began to turn gray around her muzzle, but she was always up to the chase of squirrels, crows, pigeons or seagulls.

As a pup, we would walk her in the local park where she’d play with other dogs quite nicely, especially Sam, a black labrador, and Drummer, a gray dachshund she used to treat as a hurdle and go flying over him.
One day we were at Hamworthy Park and could not have timed it better for socialising her.
Her first encounter were small yorkies, then jack russels, followed by dogs of varying larger sizes in order, and she was fine with the black and white dalmation, but with Bella, the black and tan doberman, she was more than a little surprised, but soon got over it.
Going back to the car, we met up with white Newfoundlands and she had great fun running under their bellies or chasing their tails. In later weeks, we met up with three mastiffs, and she played with them too.
Happy days, bless her.

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.

    Our favorite grand dog (don’t tell we have favorites) was so sweet and when she turned gray around the nose, her face was just adorable. I loved your post today.
