Here Boy

My response to Charli Mills’ Carrot Ranch weekly challenge to write about a dog in the daisies. Have fun with the other ranchers by following her blog!

She’d been out wandering the better neighborhoods all day, hoping to find something special for her new home. One last house on the block, just one last shot before calling it a day. Then, Wanda couldn’t believe her luck. Right there, in the middle of all the bric-a-brac, was a cast-iron statue of an Irish Setter! Yes! Those garage sale finds were the best.

All the way home, she imagined pulling into her driveway each night and seeing this magnificent creature waiting for her, standing proud. What a wonderful way to be welcomed, by a dog in the daisies.

  1. Oh, this is really clever! I really like the visual imagery! And you’ve shared the character, too, without an ‘overdose of words.’ Well done!
