It was early in the morning, just after the crack of dawn, when I heard the insistent knocking at my door and I immediately knew I’d made the right decision.

I shrank against the wall then heard the splintering of wood and raised voices.
There was a scuffle, bad language, the sound of furniture being overturned and finally begging for the fists to stop.
I heard the sound of a body being thrown out of the apartment and the thump of the packed suitcase following it.

The bedroom opened slowly and a bear of a man stepped through.
‘You can come out now, he’s gone.’
As I stepped out, two equally big guys were putting my apartment straight whilst a third was making good the doorway until it could be completely replaced later that day.
I hugged my saviour, tears streaming down my face.
‘He won’t come back?’
‘No Sis, he won’t. We made sure of that.’


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.
