Has that little dog gone?
5 special dogs in my lifetime:
Missy, Hoover, Heidi, Lady, Susie (all dogs that have gone to heaven)
She was my first pet and my first dog. When I went with my Mom and Dad to get her, I knew right away she was the one. She ran over to me like she knew she was going home with us. The runt of the litter, but never shy.
She was funny and always knew exactly what you were saying to her. She was the reason we had to spell things like “go” and “ride”. I’ve never met a smarter dog.
She licked my face when I cried because my parents were fighting. She sat with me on the couch curled up in my special blanket and kept me company when I was alone. I used to draw pictures of her while she was sleeping.
She ran off when I was 12 not long after my parents got divorced. Another blow at a horrible time. I miss her still.
Love you, Missy. Thanks for all the memories.

List the names of five dogs from your lifetime. Write about why one sparks a stronger memory to you than the others. (inspired by Writing Fix).
Go and give some love to the other writers. Go Now. You. No. Stay. Here. You eat WHOLE buffet (that was also my dog Missy. She would eat anything you gave her. I mean, ANYTHING.).
