You should have saved this for a Dialogue Only contest...it is so funny. I like the dark colored Jack Russells the best and Ralfie is very handsome. I think he lucked out enormously when you brought him home (even if he was still a little sore.) LOL

    Hello Janet.

    This was written for a dialogue on the contest. The "committee" sent me a message saying it was unacceptable because in their words, dialogue is between two people only. They included a dictionary definition as their justification. I replied to them that they were wrong. The second part of the definition includes inanimate objects or any other living thing. I know they don't like my writing but that was wrong.

    Ralphie has been told he is handsome. I think he knows what that word means. He does not have an off switch. If I drop something on the floor, he can't wait to get to it first.

    Your last sentence is funny.

This is a sweet and fun exchange between the dog and his owner. Smart dog! Actually, I think dogs are very intelligent, much more than humans in many cases. Sending you my best today as always and best wishes in your writing endeavors.
Your pal, Sal :))

    Thanks Sal.

    I appreciate you reading this non contest entry and your positive comments. Ralphie liked it. Tee Hee Thanks for your good wishes.

    I had a meeting with my writing mentor this evening for two hours by zoom. He has published several novels. He is helping me put together a chap book of my poetry and short stories. He is going to help me with a publisher too. It should be published in 2021.

    I haven't told anyone here. He is quite successful. He asked me to write an "impression" sentence for the back cover of a new book he is publishing.

    PAL Z

I love this amusing conversation.But I find food for some serious thought about how we treat the animals and how animals would react if given the power of speech! Good luck in the contest. I find it a strong entry!

That's a cute dialogue only story with humor in just the right places. And the ability to talk with an adopted pet like that shows the intimacy between pet parent and dog. Best wishes in the contest!

Very amusing--POV of dog re getting neutered personified--indeed they'd be horrified at the prospect if they had a clue what they were in for. Clever whimsy. Cheers. LIZ

Very cute little story...yes, some dogs think they're humans. This is a nice exchange between the dog and his pet and an excellent entry for the Dialog Only prompt. Good luck.

This is so funny and sounds just like what the Jack Russell I know would say if I could interpret his arf, arf, arf. The dog must still be young - all those questions! I like how the human is explaining things so patiently. He will be a kind owner and provide a caring home.
