I will admit right here, right now that I have never thought of having a doggy date. This is not to say that I don’t love dogs. I absolutely adore them. They’re fluffy balls of pure love and devotion. However, I love them with obvious boundaries in place, with each of us in our own space.
The last dog I had felt my estrangement the most. He was all love and play, and I was, well, all cold and distant. With time I had to let him go because I couldn’t take care of him the way he deserved.
It still breaks my heart when I think about it. Perhaps at another time, under different circumstances, I could have spent more time with him. Maybe, just maybe, a doggy date or two with him would have helped us bond a bit better.

Remember to use the tag ‘dailywitheli’ so that I can add your story to my word prompt hall of fame. You do not have to attempt all of the prompts. However, if and when inspiration strikes, do follow the muse.
For today’s prompt, we are tackling Micro-Fiction. This is a story with no more than 100 words. Therefore, as always, try your best to stick within the confines of the word count.
Take time to stretch, walk, grab a drink of water, and pet your pooch. Let them know you love ’em.
All in all, have fun with today’s writing prompts.
