I Saw Your Ad in the Paper - Flash Fiction

The Seeds That Are Sown:  3

I saw your ad in the paper, you know, the one about your missing dog. You'd just gotten him the other day. What a shame. He looked to be a big brute; certainly not safe around your children. Besides, you left him tied up outside, and that's no way to treat a dog. Or a person. I'll bet you wouldn't like that, would you, to be tied up in a confined space with a choke collar around that slim white neck of yours.

Maybe your nice doggie is in a better place right now.

And if the kiddies miss him, well maybe it's best they learn now that the things which we love have a nasty habit of disappearing into thin air.

Read Part 4


  1. Dogs are family members and should get to stay in the house. That's my opinion anyway. Nice piece!

  2. Yes, this guy is very wrong. You are doing well with this.

    Tossing It Out

  3. people/family who never have compassion for animals should not have pets...


  4. actually i don't have dog in my home...

  5. I love animals and hate to see them mistreated,
    There is a lady who lives in the downstairs apartment from me sh has a cat,.....I know cats can look after themselves but she goes away for days on end leaving him out in all wonds and weathers, no food is left out or water, I think it's cruel.


  6. And finally; this part made me check my bullets and go bring my dogs in. No I do not chain them up. This is a great twist on fiction writing Li.

    Hope you have a great weekend. :)

  7. This person gives me the chills. I hope I never mistreat anyone enough to make them want to stalk me like this.

    WoW! You're good!

    The dog tied up outside...shame on the owner.
