Friday 55 Flash Fiction #127 Deprived...

Chico hated her for depriving him.

She said it was for 'his own good' - How?

He was miserable and would look at her dolefully.

He tried ignoring her, even crying, but she wouldn't give in.

After many months he got used to it and now he was a happy

lightweight, lithe, labrador who could run.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Another little gem.
I always told my dogs that I knew best... of course, they didn't believe me.

The kind of ending I like. Nice one.

Finding Pam said...

I have my lab on a diet too and she is so hungry, but alas she will be able to run faster and be healthier.

This was a great story. Is it true?

As usual, we were led to expect one thing, only to find a complete twist to the tale!
Very good.

Excellent as always! Now if I could just get someone to treat ME like a Labrador maybe I could lose some weight!

Perseverance is key.

Ah the grow bigger but some pup still remains....which explains my 109 lb. Lab's evening greeting. :)
