For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a man carrying a puppy in a carrier bag across his shoulders. The puppy looks pensive.
It’s a scary world, but I know no-one will hurt me and my new Dad will look after me. I’m assured this mode of transport is only temporary. I hope so because my real Daddy was a big guy and I couldn’t see him being carried around like this!
I miss my brothers and sisters though and didn’t like it when the man in the white coat stabbed me with a needle. I squeaked as it stung, but then he gave me a treat for being a good boy, so I’ll reserve judgement as to whether I like him or not.
Speaking of squeaks, wherever we go, women squeak how cute I am and come up for fuss. I don’t mind, but some of them smell horrible and I’ve learned that is down to ‘smoking’. Hm, I couldn’t see any smoke coming through their clothes. Most of them smell sweet like flowers or candy. I can do without the puckering and kisses though. It’s too much, but the tickles behind the ears, oh yeah, I love that!
Dad says I’ll be able to walk on my own soon. I’m too young at the moment and have to have another set of jabs before I can go and say hello to other dogs. For now, he says he’s going to introduce me to my new surroundings and keep me safe.
It’s noisy in some places, quiet in others and there are so many things I don’t understand. I have a lot to learn, but I have to teach Dad too……….. how do I tell him I need to pee?

When you have to go, you have to go. Cute story Di.
Thanks Jim. When Maggie was a pup, we took her everywhere and she ‘lived’ in Hubby’s coat. He couldn’t go five feet without someone coming up to ooh and ahh over her, but not once did she wee on him.
You found a great story behind the image so sweet 🙂
Thank you. This is very reminiscent of Maggie when we first got her as she lived in Hubby’s coat for the first few weeks and we took her everywhere. Maya was 13 weeks old when we got her and way to big for this!
Better be quick about telling him!
A adorable story Di. Thanks for joining in.
Glad you liked it.
Very cute story!!
Very much based on Maggie when we first got her.
I was reading Jim’s post regarding this prompt and I thought it was his actual dog! 🙂
Ha. Maggie lived in hubby’s coat for the first few weeks when we took her out. Maya was way too big when we got her to do that!
