Six Word Slice of Life: Dog Greeting

(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.

Six Word Slice of Life Dogs

Peace (wags its tail),


  1. Everyday every homecoming is Christmas to a dog. Oh how I love them (and your lean in detail– my dog does that too).

  2. 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!

  3. I continue to love your six word stories as they capture your daily moments and adventures.
    Enjoy all the ‘puppy’ love!

  4. 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).
