(For this month’s Slice of Life Challenge with Two Writing Teachers, I am aiming to do Six Word Slices most days, with some extended slices on other days.)
Context: I sort of remembered that our sister-in-law asked us to watch her dogs while she and her family went away for a few days. They live in Rhode Island. We’re in Western Massachusetts. She decided to deliver their dogs a few days early, with another storm approaching. So, I was surprised to walk in our door after school and see three dogs, instead of just our Duke, pushing all of their faces towards me and knocking into my legs with wagging tails and leaning bodies. Such a greeting party and so happy to see me! And then, they did it all over again every time I entered the house.
Peace (wags its tail),
Everyday every homecoming is Christmas to a dog. Oh how I love them (and your lean in detail– my dog does that too).
Dogs are reliable greeters, full of enthusiasm.
The change of schedule doesn’t seem to bother you one bit, once the enthusiasm of three wagging tails greets you at the door. Thrice the dog love for a few days!
A family of dogs. My children all have dogs. When they get together, it’s a cousination of dogs!
I have 1 dog who is a very enthusiastic greeter, I can only imagine what 3 would look like. Enjoy the company!
I continue to love your six word stories as they capture your daily moments and adventures.
Enjoy all the ‘puppy’ love!
Dogs and kids,
Loving you unconditionally
What a great way to be greeted! With such enthusiasm and love!
I love the line about how then they do it all over again. Yes, the enthusiasm and endless beginner’s mind of dogs. One of the many things I love about them (even if I am much more of a cat person).
Great 6 word slice. I read it before reading the backstory…. just to see what I thought versus the “real” story.
Lots of dog fun at your house, Kevin. Were they all jumping for joy when the snow fell in Nor’easter 4?
How much fun is that. You could have written a disaster slice here.
