My Protectors

This week, our word prompt from

My dog, Titan, and his pal a Jack Russel called Molly. They will always tell us about external dangers; the postman, a pigeon, kids coming home from school, dogs. They are not trouble, not really, and I wouldn’t want to be without their love.

Their prompt to write an acrostic poem using the word trouble.

Trouble is my middle name,

Ranting about chew toys

Or telling me to stop

Using my outdoor voice

But I’m only protecting

Loved ones from

External danger.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. Excellent Diana. Maya is alert, but only barks if it’s someone she doesn’t know that comes to the door. We have a locked gate so visitors have to stay that side. Maya can sit at the window and watch people and other dogs go by, but doesn’t show any interest unless they are strangers to her. If however it is someone she really likes going by, she is up and at the door wanting to go out and greet them, even if they’re not visiting us! Maggie could tell a strangers footsteps on the pontoon and would alarm up so when one guy had to berth his boat next to ours for a few months, we asked him to walk up and down for a few minutes so that Maggie could identify him. He thought we were joking until he had visitors himself and she let everyone know about it!

    1. They are and to ignore is at your peril. I remember my dog Scamp, barking all night. We were all telling him to shut up and in the morning we found out there was a murder in the night (two gerbils, one headless) by our two cats. Who teamed up against them. He was telling on his kitty friends.
