“You know what I like most about people? Pets.
” Jarod Kintz

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Anatole France

Furry Friends. I’ve had a few, how about you? Our family currently includes 1 dog, 1 bunny and two cats. In no particular order. OK, the cats insist they are first.  Today’s prompt may have you feeling nostalgic, or teary eyed, or both.

Prompt 3:

The pet I’ll never forget…

Although we love all the pets that come into our lives, focus on writing about the one that comes to your mind first. 


1. Write about the pets you’ve had over the years and their significance in your life.

2. Random Pet memories, just allow your mind to remember the sweetest, silliest most memorable moments, characteristics, and experiences you’ve shared with fur friends.

3. Choose one of your fur friends and make a special memory acrostic poem or list with their name.


Take the prompt as it leads. Trust, and enjoy the process.

    I already know that I will write about my dear, sweet Presley. I miss him, but I know that we had to return him to the shelter. Now that he’s been re-adopted, I miss him even more. He was a part of our lives for only six short months, but circumstances were such that we had to return him; he didn’t like men & the men in my life (sons-in-law, grandsons, even my husband at times) and he was not to be trusted around them. With the youngest grandson being only 9 months old & beginning to walk we couldn’t chance what Presley might do to him. But I miss him so; he was truly “my” dog; a loyalty that was so strong it melts my heart. A loyalty I wish I could emulate when it comes to my devotion to the Lord (without the biting – 🙂 )

      Oh, I hope your writing helps to process and also glean spiritual insight. My hub had two dogs when we got married and one snapped at Katherine…it was goodbye to them. NOT an easy decision , she was little (same thing as your situation). Our dog now still growls at my hub when he jisses me goodby and goodnight. BUt with tail wagging. I agree about the loyalty , ther eare none so loyal as animals, especially canine.
