Friday Fictioneers – Dactyl and Spondee – February 26, 2015

 

 

She’d walk like that when she was upset – long strides and single-minded. Dactyl in those moments stayed back. Oh, his human wasn’t mean or anything, but he knew she needed alone time … moments to get the sourness out of her system after she’d been nearly poisoned by “man-rage”.They walked along the tracks, which had been unused for years. Then suddenly she turned:

“Hey Dactyl old boy, let’s go visit Jen and Spondee.” She said in her happy voice that Dactyl loved so much. He yapped his approval.

a brisk walk
leaving woes behind
woman and her dog

  1. Yay! Dactyl and Spondee make their debut! This brought a huge chuckle — you’re the sweetest! 🙂

    Beautifully written — and yes — dogs always know, don’t they? Sweet and fun. 🙂
