Lassie Learns the Truth

thWelcome to day three of BLOGSHORTS: a ten day, ten story, 110 word writing extravaganza.

Each participating blogger chooses a pooch a day from a list of dogs, thunk-up by our fearless leader BLOGDRAMEDY, and then writes a short story featuring their dog of choice.

Each story is 110 words in length and can feature as much or as little of our canine friend as we like.

I will admit that I didn’t know who this dog was when I signed on to blog, so I was forced to look him (her) up first. Truth be told, I still don’t know what this show was all about. From what I can gather, there were a lot of children getting stuck places or falling into wells who needed rescuing. That fact prompted me to ask…just how fat are the children in this town, anyway??

Obese toddlers or not, I bring you:

LASSIE LEARNS THE TRUTH

“What are they calling me??” Lassie barked to Megan, a cute pug digging a hole alongside him.

“Lassie is a girl’s name,” Megan yapped back. “The producers want Timmy’s dog to be female. They want the audience to think she’s maternal.”

“A female?” Lassie growled, incredulous. “I’m no female and I can prove it. Look here.” Lassie curled his snout behind him to sniff at a couple of things he was sure were there.

But they weren’t. Not anymore.

Lassie collapsed into a heap on the ground. Megan nudged him with her snout and yapped, “It could be worse. You could be filming a peanut butter commercial with Ron Jeremy.”

  1. Transgender is the theme of the day. We are both sniffing something similar.

  2. Ron Jeremy? Peanut butter?! I’m deeply troubled.

    • Maybe I shouldn’t admit that I cleaned this up before I hit publish.

      August 3, 2013 at 10:28 am

      • Scary thought.

        • Scared me too, actually. I spent the rest of last night watching back to back Disney movies in an attempt to cleanse my morality palate.

          • Disney’s even more perverse than Mr. Jeremy. You need more help than Mickey can provide.

            • I think you’re right. I’ll grab a nickel and head on over to the Peanuts Gang to take a ride on Lucy’s couch.

              • That’s a safe bet, at least until Snoop shows up on the blog.

  3. Oh man… that was weird…

    “a peanut butter commercial with Ron Jeremy.” HA! Never thought I see a porn star referenced in a story about Lassie!

    August 3, 2013 at 11:37 am

    • What can I say? It’s a gift.

      August 3, 2013 at 12:02 pm

  5. Brilliant concept, H.E.!

    August 3, 2013 at 11:41 am

    • Why thank you, Hook. I chalk my inspiration for this post up to my love of peanut butter, and certainly not because I watch entirely too much porn.

  6. When studly Spuds Mackenzie was discovered to be female, they traced it all the way back to this moment.

    August 3, 2013 at 11:44 am

    • OMG I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THAT DOG!! WHAT THE HELL WERE WE THINKING BACK THEN??

      August 3, 2013 at 12:06 pm

  7. You’re not from around these here parts are you? (smile)
    Well, something tells me not knowing Lassie is far better than not knowing the other dogs on the list. I’m clueless about Fluffy, Blacktoe, and Frank. Thank goodness for Google.

    • I know what you mean. I’ll have to research the Will Riker dog tonight. I got as far as figuring out that is has something to do with Star Trek. How does a dog breathe in space?

  11. I did NOT see the Ron Jeremy reference coming.

    No pun intended.

  12. Reality always gets in the way of beautiful dreams.

    • You are more right than you know.
