Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy See Some Action

Lucy and Twiggy are blissfully unaware that a danger worse than thunder is about to invade their space.

Twiggy and Lucy

Lucy dreaming of the big hunt.

Twiggy dreaming of the dinner dish.

“Hey Tiggy get up. I heard the beating of an engine far off.”

“I hear it, Lucy. Do you think it’s headed this way?”

“Headed this way? It’s already here. A dually and two mens.”

“OMG, what do they want?”

“I know it’s not the wrong address for sure.”

“Lucy. What are you doing?”

“Best time to nap is during an assault.”

“Do Mom and Dad know about this?”

“Yes, we do. Little One. It’s the new backyard being put in place. Want to see what they are doing?”

“Oh, yes, please.”

“Means leashes to stay out of the way.”

“Holy cow, Twiggy. Look. Everything’s torn up?”

“Do you think it will be put back?”

“Let’s hope so.”

“It will ladies. You have my word.”

    1. I think they will run and ruckus, leash-free. Doesn’t sound too bad, ​does it?

    Great dialogue, John. Their world is so much simpler and ultimately more humane. Aww, could it be no politics? πŸ˜€

  9. At first, I thought it was going to be a lawn crew with those evil gas-powered blowers, but then I remembered you don’t have any lawn, yet. It looks like that’s about to change. Good of you to allow the girls to go have a sniff!

  19. Twiggy seems more deliberative when it comes to possible intruders, but then again, maybe she’s taking her cue from Lucy’s impromptu nap. Which really isn’t the worst idea since, yanno, you should be conserving energy in the event of an actual emergency. Smart.
