Two Dogs

The prompt for today involved dogs. It just so happened that I spent most of the morning hanging out with two dogs. I am just taking a quick break from them now to write something short. One of the dogs, Bailey, is our family dog. He is quite particular and extremely shy around other dogs. The other dog is my sister’s new puppy, Reily. She is sweet and adorable and wants so much to be Bailey’s friend, but he most scowls at her and avoids her at all costs.

A little shy, wants to be left alone
Sits under the table and watches warily

Young, light on her feet and ever so sweet
Bounces all day long, around her new friend

Rarely touching and never comfortable
He misses her anyway, when she finally leaves
