Good Evening!


The prompt for Day 17  “…asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into wherever they take you.” [From: Day Seventeen (]

With a hollow kind of bark

Gave me quite a start, that doggie did!

Yes, I had a wee tune going in my head as I wrote it and everything – I’m sure some of you involuntarily made one up as you read it, too 😉 love a wee nonsense rhyme!

The thought that surprised me was the dog from this children’s cartoon popping into my head: 


Spaghetti junctions galore in my bonce, I tell ya!!


And onnnn to Day 18 I goooo…
