Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’
** 8 Sentence Sunday Blog Hop **
A weekly festival of writers sharing excerpts from their work.
Many different genres; something for everybody. Enjoy!
Changing gears this week, in honour of the #ReadforAnimals project.
(Details below the post.)
This is an excerpt from Chapter Five of my W.I.P., “Adventures in Dogsitting”:
Candice was a Golden Retriever with a unique look, because of her curly coat. She also had a birthmark right in the middle of her tongue; such a cutie!
Her human mom, a busy executive, was not into grooming, so poor Candice looked quite ratty most of the time. Didn’t bother her at all and she went merrily through life; a dog with a sweet, fun-loving personality.
Weekday walking was the main assignment and I soon learned that Candice didn’t have any leash manners. She yanked and pulled mercilessly and despite my best training efforts, this did not improve much over time. She also had a stubborn streak and would sit down abruptly, refusing to move. Once, this happened in the middle of a busy street!
I had to give her a gentle shove in the hindquarters. Thankfully, there was no traffic at that moment.
