Today's Prompt is FIRST AND LAST

Today we will use the line...
THE DOG WAS HAVING A GRAND TIME
The rules are you must use this as your first AND last line in your write, with no changes. You may do your write in prose or any form of poetry...OURS IS...

The dog was having a grand time
as everyone could plainly see
each time she returned the ball
she jumped and barked with glee

Then as the children gathered 'round
to see what the fuss was about
she'd run up to them, wag her tail,
pushing them the ball with her snout

Over and over they threw it
for she really was in her prime
twisting and barking she loved it 
the dog was having a grand time

MR LINKY AWAITS...
YOUR TURN
ENJOY

  1. Fun verse! As child I had a couple of dogs just like that. :) One played like that with a ball, and one was a frisbee catcher. :)

    The dog was having a grand time
    at the piano, pressing and pawing
    the Steinway Baby Grand's keys.

    running around in the park.
    Come rain or shine he'd still be there
    chasing a ball and having a lark.

    Chasing a ball was his favourite sport.
    He'd even geg if given a dime.
    Dashing here and dashing there
    The dog was having a grand time.x
