Is He Coming ? — Friday Fictioneers

Sometimes it’s a dog’s world out there. This week, Rochelle’s excellent prompt for Friday Fictioneers gave a run to many awesome story tellers but earned a whiny whimper from my dog. In 100 words he complained. Please be mindful that his bark is larger than his brain and things rarely are as he sees them.


I smell him in the car and on her coat.
His scent is all around us but I can’t see him or hear him.
But he is here…
Maybe if I bring my toy he will come out and play…
But he doesn’t.

I look for him around the corner when everything is dark and she looks into the sky waiting for something that does not come…

I don’t know why he hides.
I did not find him at the big salty water place.
She really can’t throw sticks.

She is cooking and there is music…
Is he coming tonight?

    I like the dog’s viewpoint. A sad but lovely story of devotion.


  3. Dear Emmy,

    A fun take on the prompt with a well-spoken POV. Perhaps this is the dog from Doug’s Dog House. 😉

    My doggie, who i love and pet and walk and feed and play with and take on trips and…completely ignores me when my step dad comes home. You can actually watch the little traitor swoon over him lol.

    Inside a dogs head. With our terrors, that’s frightening! 🙂

    Maybe I should keep a dog, they seem to have excellent thoughts :-))

    Great take on the prompt. I love the voice of the dog and his failure to realise that ‘he’ isn’t there. It leads me to wonder why he isn’t there and where he actually is… 🙂


  10. AnAstonishing allegory full of wondrous words and magical metaphors.
    Awe-inspiring writing.

    So, what’s in the sky and why is she looking for it? Humans are a good source of food, but they just can’t grasp what’s really important.


  12. Great voice here. And a clever take on the missing guest take.


Say something, please.
