It's a dogs life

Exactly one hundred words of nonsense written for Friday Fictioneers.

One, two, here we go again. Up the track and back, counting sleepers as I go.

Sixty-one, sixty-two. This is where I pee on the wild strawberries.  She doesn't see and always eats some coming back.

Hundred n’eighteen, hundred n’nineteen. Look, there’s mud on the back of her skirt. Can’t tell her, wouldn't if I could.

Three hundred n’six, three hundred n’seven. About turn. Three hundred n’six, three hundred n’five.

Here’s Rover. Don’t sniff him, he stinks. Personal hygiene problem.

Thirty-eight, thirty seven. Nearly finished.

Two, one, supper soon. Canned meat again. 

Suppose we’ll do it all again tomorrow.

  3. Definitely not what I'd want my dog thinking about me and our time together. Good one, Keith, if a bit deflating to dog owners and lovers. :-)

  5. Avoid the wild strawberries. Lovely little snapshot of a moment in a dog's life.

  6. I really liked this story from the dog's POV (even though I think he's a not-so-happy dog?). "Can’t tell her, wouldn't if I could." = LOL! :)

  7. He's like a grumpy old man dog. I bet he never even wags his tail.

  8. Hope the kid doesn’t eat the peed-on strawberries. :P

  9. Our dog always finds something smelly to roll in to liven up his walks. He could teach this one a thing or two about getting the most out of every moment. Great narrative voice - entertaining story.

  10. Oh.. what a sour dog.. and peeing on the strawberries sounds like a revenge for his suffering.
