Daily Prompts – Aging friend

To rouse him you need a bribe

Offer a doggy biscuit to tempt him

He won’t labor without an incentive

If you want him to fetch a ball

My tan colored Labrador is not only my dog

But more of a loved and valued family member

( I personally don’t have a pet but I am hopefully reflecting the feelings of dog owners)

In response to the following prompts;


Biscuit, Tan, Age





Word of the day Challenge;

  1. Truly an awww moment! Pets are our best friends, IMO! They seem to understand us better than we understand ourselves. We have an 18-year-old cat and she is becoming very fragile but still thinks she is super cat! Nice post, Sadje!
