6 Word Memoirs – Canine Edition: Update

July 3, 2008 at 6:00 pm Leave a comment

I sent the Six Word Memoir – Canine Edition idea to some of our friends in the dog world.  Here are their contributions.  Some witty, some touching, others just plain silly.  Enjoy!

Margot Woods of Applewoods Dog Training cleverly included her dogs’ names into their memoirs.

Where oh were is my Sanity? 

Former squirrel dancer, almost a Wrap.

Gift or Mercy turned out neither.

Will you please give to Charity?

Faith, pincher of silver tooth fame.

Hope was found – lost too soon.

Dancer – Made balls fall from the sky.

Xaney, a name to long remember.

Ky:  I take my work VERY seriously.  

Mara: Throw Orbee, Frisbee, Jolly Ball NOW!

Corvus: I’ll thoughtfully watch from a distance.

Ledum: Zoom. Leap. I’ll make ‘em laugh.

Tringa: Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!

Me: I am so very blessed.  (editor’s note: Sharon’s dogs can count, but she apparently can not ;-)
