Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Heal/Heel



Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again. This week’s prompt is heal/heel and if you would like to join in just click on this link and get all the info. This is my interpretation of heal/heel.

Heal/Heel by John W. Howell ©2015

“So how long do I have to stay like this?”

“Until you realize you need to walk to my right and not pull.”

“This collar is hurting me.”

“Nonsense. It is one of best rated for kindness.”

“My haunches hurt from sitting.”

“Oh, come on. It has been two minutes max.”

“I think it’s going to rain.”

“The weather channel didn’t say anything about rain.”

“You’re a heel you know.”

“Yes, yes, I know. And you are a bad dog you know.”

“Just cause I won’t heel?”

“No, not just cause you won’t heel. Mostly because after all your treatments you refuse to heal.”

“But I want to be a dog.”

“You are not a dog and I’m getting tired taking you for walks.”

“But look how much better I am.”

“Better? You kidding me?”

“No, I’m not kidding. I am better. Just feel my nose.”
