Promptly Penned


Write about the three things he could never tell her.


As much as he wanted to, he could never tell her how happy it made him to see her at the end of a long day.

He couldn’t tell her that he was most at peace when he was with her.

And he couldn’t tell her that curling up with her at night was the best place he’d ever been.

He couldn’t tell her…because he was a dog.

But she was his person, so he was pretty sure she understood.


That’s it for me, this time around. Short and sweet, but it’s what’s been in my head ever since I saw that prompt. Be sure to check out the other bloggers’ posts by clicking on their names.

  1. OMG this is adorable. I laughed so hard when it got to the end. I don’t know what I was expecting but I wasn’t expecting that and it was Shel Silverstein style pleasantness.

      Shel Silverstein pleasantness may be the best compliment ever. 😀

    Love this! I thing I might need a dog. Not sure the cat feels this way. 😀

      Not that I don’t love my cats, but dogs seem awfully sweet. I wish I weren’t so allergic to them. :/

    Totally loved this so much! And yep dogs are always glad to see their human. Cats are too, but they don’t make a big deal out of it. 😉

      Thanks! 🙂 Nah, they’re much more subtle.

    This is by far the sweetest thing I have ever read!
    I accidentally stumbled upon your blog and have read all of the promptly penned stories and I have to say, they are really good, but this one definitely takes the cake! 🙂

      I’m so sorry I’m just seeing your comment, now! It went into the spam filter for some reason. 🙁 But thank you so much, Ana! 🙂
