Light Charcoal, Action

Ah, a COOKING SHOW, this is the prompt from Charli Mills. I love to cook but have never actually imagined myself hosting a cooking show. But I love to watch grill masters at work.

Be sure to FOLLOW the Carrot Ranch for writing fun and frolic!

There is something special about charcoal-grilled hot dogs. Frank made sure he rolled them for even browning. He loved to use the grill. The taste of the food, along with the oohs and ahhs from hungry diners made his day.

Poised and ready for the first taste was Zeus, a patient, playful Rottie! His head followed the action of his master’s hands in syncopated rhythm. It was as though he was willing Frank to drop something on the ground.

Aware he was being watched, Frank laughed, “Gee, Zeus, I didn’t realize I was putting on a show here!”

  1. I love the way you depict Zeus here! You show exactly what he’s like, even though, of course, he has no speaking lines… This is great! Oh, and my dog does the same sort of thing…

  2. The 5 second rule doesn’t apply when you have a 2 second dog 😂🤣😂

  5. This was a cute story. I spend way too much time watching animal videos on Youtube and a favorite dog to watch are Rottweilers. They’re so smart they almost seem human.
