Drabble: Brassy Lassie

Genre: slice of life, humour


When her friend said he wanted to show her a brassy lassie, this wasn’t what she had in mind.

“What do you think?” he asked.

The reddish-gold dog’s tail swished energetically in the air.

“She looks lovely.”

“Yeah, he is.”

She blinked. “He? You said you wanted to show me a brassy lassie.”

“Not the dog. His owner. You’ll see.”

When the dog’s owner arrived, they heard her from the moment she got off her car.

“Hello my gorgeous!” she exclaimed loud enough for the whole street to hear. Completely ignoring the two humans, the owner dashed at her dog. The light bounced off her many, massive accessories like a disco ball.

After much noise and gestures, the lady paid for the dogsitting service and left.

“What do you think?” he asked.

She couldn’t reply.
