Thanks for stopping by. I know I haven’t written anything in a long while. Life has been extra lifey lately with added caregiving responsibilities and a guide dog with a mystery illness that turned out to be cancer. My golden treasure went from diagnosis to dead in 5 weeks, but she only truly suffered for 1 day, a Sunday (and, sadly, her 8t birthday on February 20), before I could get her to the vet and release her.
This story is exactly 100 words for Friday Fictioneers for 11 March 2022.
I stared at my screensaver for quite a while before mustering any ideas. My ink well contained only dried-up flecks of useless nothing in it. At long last, I thought of a little shack I stayed in with my first guide dog, and a memory that I could turn into 100 words surfaced. So, here you go.

Thunder’s Rustic Adventure
I fastened Thunder’s guide harness and asked, “Ready to explore?”
She wagged her approval. The brochure probably called our cabin rustic, but I considered it neglected.
I directed her to find the path. She led me over gnarly patches of ground and around obstacles invisible to me.
Soon, we stepped onto the swaying dock. She paused.
“It’s okay, girl. Forward.” None too sure, she obliged. And we proceeded to the far railing.
A pandemonium of honks, splashes and wingbeats ensued. Evidently, a mother goose with her babies floated just beneath the corner.
Thunder took us to safety at a run.
Thanks for reading!
