Fluffy’s Fateful Faux Pas

fluffy-harry-potter-3-three-headed-dog-historys-famous-dog-ark-animal-centreWelcome to day four 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.

Today we travel beyond the land of Muggles to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to meet with our favorite three-headed dog, FLUFFY!

FLUFFY’S FATEFUL FAUX PAS

Fluffy tucked El Guapo’s speakers into his ears and for one blessed moment let the smooth, mellow sounds of Coltrane drown out the incessant bickering between his two ex-wives.

Fluffy often used his stolen quiet time to reflect on the course his life had taken. He dissected every decision and evaluated every consequence. He ran scenarios over and over again in his mind, asking himself what he might have done differently to have avoided the fate that had so tragically befallen him.

But no matter how many times he replayed that fateful day, Fluffy always came to the one sad, inevitable conclusion:

He should have never called He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, “Lord Moldywart.”

  1. Hilarious! What a great twist of the head for this one. And linking in El Gaupo…brilliant.

  2. Between Fluffy’s love of music and El Guapo’s love of Harry Potter limericks, the pairing was a no brainer. A match made in Hogwarts.

    Only two ex-wives? Looks like one head dodged a bullet.

    • Can you imagine being sandwiched for eternity between two Ex’s?

  8. Like Norm said on Cheers “it’s a dog eat dog world and I am wearing Milk-Bone underwear!

    • Or like Moe Szyslak from The Simpsons said, “I’m gonna stuff sausages down your throat and wild dogs up your butt.”

      Always liked that one.
