In The Doghouse...

Wanted – 117 words
Ben Azevedo

He just wanted to go for a walk. But it was cold and rainy outside, and his chances were slim. Despite this, he wandered around the house to each potential walker, querying.

The Man was in his office. He walked up to the Man and made an impetuous noise, somewhere between a grunt and a whine. The Man simply ignored him. So he tried again. Nothing.

The Woman was in the living room reading a book. He tried a different tactic with the Woman. He slowly climbed onto her couch and laid his head on her feet. She looked at him sorrowfully and told him that maybe tomorrow would be bright and sunny and merit a walk.
