A New Friend for Christmas – 100 Word Flash

snowy downtown

The enormous wet snowflakes fell like confetti as she hurried along the crowded sidewalk. Closing her eyes, she inhaled the rich scent of chocolate and then saw the vendor spray whipped cream on top of a cup while young children waited patiently in line. The warm lights emanating from nearby shops and dazzling holiday displays lifted her small heart and spurred her along.

She swung her head towards the bell ringing man.

“You’re back!” he said. The man drew a white package from his sack.

He reached down and stroked her thick fur as she gulped down the tasty leftovers.

  1. I could smell the chocolate & taste the whipped cream. It made me want one–bad!

    And yes, I think my wife, Connie, has already selected Buster’s Christmas present. I don’t know if she’s going to wrap it for him or not, but I’m sure he’ll be pleasantly surprised either way.


  2. Cute flash & the video cracked me up! My dogs would have dove head first into the bowls…lol. Yep, they will get presents. We put a cookie inside their wrapped package so they can “open” it.


  3. Aw, that was a sweet story, but the picture was kinda creepy! My pups will get a treat for christmas this year. I have 3 – two large and one small. But then the cats and horses will feel left out, so I’ll have to do something nice for them, too.


  4. You really threw me a bone with that one, Susie.

    Just incidentally, did you hear about the dyslexic atheist?

    He didn’t believe there was a Dog.
