Eddie the Expatriate

dWelcome to day five 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.

Day five features a visit from everyone’s favorite proper pooch, Eddie. Or is he?

EDDIE THE EXPATRIATE

“You are one lucky mutt,” Rover said as he lounged back in his doggy bed. “Archon is the best master a dog could want. Warm beds, plenty of kibble; he even lets us chase Ladyryl’s cats around every Sunday. I’m telling ya, Eddie. This is the life.”

“Anything’s better than living with Frasier,” Eddie said. “Man was a fancyboy. Nothing but bottled water and vegan kibble. Even my bed was organic.”

“You’ll love this. Come here.” Rover led Eddie to his water dish and the two began to drink.

After a few laps Eddie’s eyes opened wide. “Oh my God, is that Molson?”

“Yes it is. Welcome to Canada, Eddie.”

  2. Oh Canada…

  3. Eddie best be careful… the cat chase back and aren’t afraid to whack him if he gets too rough, but a grand game of chase is always appreciated!

    • *cats… as in 5…
      And we have Peg too… our foster Chihuahua

      August 5, 2013 at 12:19 pm

      • GAH! A Chihuahua in Canada? Let me guess, he has one of those little sweater vests, doesn’t he?

        August 5, 2013 at 6:05 pm

        • She does not… being in a house that comes equipped with someone who knits [me] she shall be getting a proper sweater for winter if she needs one, otherwise she sports a harness for easier handling…

    • I am sure your feline friends would give any dog a run for their money.

  4. Dual citizenship. Goes with his dual personality. ;)

    • So very true! Plus, he gets to eat all that awesome bacon!

      No wait, ham. No, bacon. Ham?

      Pork it is.

  5. Rover can be such a hoser, eh?

    August 5, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    • That’s why I told him to take off, eh.

      August 5, 2013 at 10:38 pm

  6. I feel all warm and fuzzy, just like the dogs. Clean-up in the computer room. Bring a vacuum cleaner, not the usual damp towel. And bring me a Heineken, the damned dogs drank all my Molson’s. :roll:

    • I think I’m going to get myself a St. Bernard with a neck barrel and send him your way. Please send him back with some Tim Horton’s (?) I’d like to know what all the fuss is aboot.

      • Great meeting! It’s enticixg to learn about everything AOA is doing in health care reform. Thank you to AOA for the student travel grants to participate in the meeting. We can’t wait for Dr. Carlson’s visit to IAU!

  7. Dogs drinking beer. This can lead to other vices; next thing you know, they’ll be smoking cigars and playing poker.

    • I RACKED MY BRAIN TRYING TO WRITE A DOG STORY WITH THAT PAINTING IN IT!

      August 11, 2013 at 4:03 pm

      • I tend to write and then settle for whatever illustration I can find…the brain wracking come into play when I start trying (unsuccessfully) to come up with witty replies to comments

        August 11, 2013 at 6:01 pm

        • My problem is I come up with a comment, post it, and then realize it was a bit…off color. I wish I could think in order. Safer that way.

          August 11, 2013 at 8:12 pm

  8. I don’t think either of those dogs are polite enough to be Canadian…

    August 6, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    • I think you’re right, eh.

      August 11, 2013 at 4:03 pm

  9. I heard Eddie’s passport was fake. I wonder who he convinced to let him across the border.

    August 8, 2013 at 10:05 am

    • I heard Spuds McKenzie owed him some coin.

      August 11, 2013 at 4:04 pm

      • HA! I forgot all about Spuds. I could have written about him!
