Dog in the Daisies!!!


“Hello, Ethel.”

“Cheryl, to what do I owe the honor?”

“Don’t be a smart ass, there’s a dog in my daisies, I’m not happy!”

“Sounds like it. What happened, why tell me?”

“It’s the dog you and Betty rescued from that shelter in Cicero. I still don’t know what the hell you two were doing in Cicero.”

“That was last summer. Betty heard there was a boxer, and we saw this little terrier that would be perfect to replace Marty’s Sweetie.”

“Well, I loved Sweetie, but this one’s in my garden and Marty’s not home. Get over here, Ethel!”

Charlie Mills prompt caught my eye today!

February 6, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story to the theme “a dog in the daisies.” It can be any dog, real or imagined. Push into the setting and as always, go where the prompt leads!

Author’s note: The dog in the prompt photo looks like Betty’s dog Luna.

  1. Too funny!! Marty will love this, as do I. Thanks Ted!

    1. I’m glad. You never know who Ethel & Cheryl know.

      1. I love your Ethel and Cheryl stories!

  2. Oh, thank you, Ted! I needed the laugh!

    1. I could tell. Thank you for all the prompts you provide. Love the word ones.

    1. I got lucky finding that photo.

  3. Lol, cute! Dogs do love to dig 🙂

      1. We had a Dalmation who dug up our whole yard. We couldn’t get her to quit digging- it was like an addiction!

  4. That dog’s headed for trouble with her daisies. Thinking she’ll be won over fairly soon.

    1. Yes, that new dog’s name is Star, but I didn’t have enough words. I usually write 100 for E&C, but Charli said only 99!

    1. I’m glad you liked it, Susan. I loved your FF story.
