stream of consciousness Saturday

The stinky skunk tried to spray

The dog tried to getaway

But she was a little slow

as she’d just been spayed

Sadly her stitches did splay

Fur Coats

Written for the challenge over at Denise’s called Sunday’s Six Sentence Story.

This weeks word prompt is “Coat”

bruce as pup

 

Black, shiny, and soft

Brushed each and every day to

keep it that way

 

Some dogs have wool coats

Others do not have any

But most dogs do shed

Liberty

FFE

The following is written for a challenge over at Fandango’s called Fandango’s February Expression #22.

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, will be to post a story, a poem, an image, an interpretation of what the expression means to you, or to do whatever it is that you want to do based upon the daily adage.

This saying conjures up a memory from my past about a dog, a family pet, an Irish Setter named Liberty.

Quite often when I was a teen, my parents, our dog, and I would go for a car ride (usually for most of the day). That was back when you didn’t have to mortgage your house to buy gas.

Back to the point of this post…

We would always bring water and a dish for Liberty in case she got thirsty. She always refused to drink the water. When we would stop somewhere we would let her out of the car to have a bathroom break. The strange thing is that she would never relieve herself no matter how many hours we were gone. As soon as we got home however she’d race into the backyard to do her business. I don’t know how she was able to hold it for so long. Must have had a really good bladder.

 

 

 

 

Every Picture Tells a Story – It’s a Dogs Life

The Tree Fort
How I want to be a bird up in a tree
Singing songs and chirping, chasing bumblebees
I tried to build a nest, thinking maybe I could fly
Turn into a bird, and soar way up high
Gathered all the leaves and twigs, together to be bound
Now I am exhausted with a tree fort on the ground
Actually, it is quite nice, with all the leaves covering me
I can hide right here escaping, the bath that I so need
Bored
 
We are two dogs that are bored as can be
Lying on the kitchen floor waiting for a treat
A walk would be nice, out in the sun
Go to the park for a little run
The cat is upstairs hiding…….. from us right now
If he’d come down, we could chase him all around
Swimming at the lake would be lots of fun
Guess we’ll just have to wait for the time to come
Trim My Paws
 
Why do you look so shocked that I jumped up here
The groomer made me get on her table, so why can’t I here
I went to school today and got one paw groomed
So get out the scissors and please finish them soon
You saw how she did it, so please give it a try
Make the other ones pretty, I am not shy
One night after obedience training I asked the groomer/trainer how to trim the fur on my dog’s paws and so she took us into her grooming room and showed me on one of her paws. When we got home Magz jumped up onto the table as if to say “Okay now finish the other three”
