“Beautiful day to walk in the garden.” Bob seemed to think when he jumped up at me at 6 in the morning. Bob likes to give surprises as much as he loves to receive them. Bob who? Oh I didn’t tell you? Bob is my dog. Bob is a sweetheart. We got him from the pound. Everybody there used to call him that so we decided we will keep the name. He loves to hear his name too.
“Ok ok I’m up. Stop making a mess Bob.” At last, I gave in. “Don’t know what possessed this dog today, so much energy?” I thought.
“Out of the room now. I’m coming. Stay away from the study table or else you’ll spill the ink…” And it’s already done.
Bob ran out of the room; he knew he would get a scolding otherwise.
10 minutes later, I had to let him out. He was continuously barking at the door and the window alternately.
Must be the mail man. Bob hates that guy. Once he chased the mail man around the block for an hour. The mail man wears skates now.
I let him out and then went to the kitchen to get some food for both of us.
Thankfully there were some left over pan-cakes. I reheated them and ate them with maple syrup.
“Better wash this plate or else Bob would come looking for it.” I told myself.
After taking some dog-food for him, I went outside to check the mail box. But it was empty. And Bob was still barking at frequent intervals.
“Look at you sitting here comfortably. Why are you barking at the tree? Yeah you wont tell I know. Classic Bob.”
After looking around a bit, I finally spotted a Blue-Jay bird sitting on the middle branch.
“Oh boy! That bird is so gorgeous! Been a while, haven’t spotted one of these in a long time. Come on Bob, leave the Blue-Jay alone. The poor bird will not steal your food!”
Ok, time’s up. Otherwise, I was gonna tell you about The Big Bang Theory Episode where Sheldon is afraid of birds (Blue-Jay was at his window.) Sheldon tried to scare the bird away by making cat sounds and drawings. Then tries to keep it as a pet but it eventually flies away.
In this story, I was gonna tell you, Bob would have been compared to Sheldon, which Bob doesn’t like and when he is still not able to scare the bird away, I would have said: “I knew I should’ve gotten a cat.” 😉
Yeah, and Bob Cat sounds so much better than Bob Dog, doesn’t it? 😀
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Dog Named Bob.”
Challenge: You have 20 minutes to write a post that includes the words mailbox, bluejay, plate, syrup, and ink. And one more detail… the story must include a dog named Bob.
