“And Puppy Makes Three” – The Final Trio

For our final trio prompt of the year, write about any topic you wish, but make sure your post features a bookcase, something cracked, and a song you love.

It was that time again, towards the end of the year and they were at home. Both of them had a fortnight off from work and were planning how to spend the next 14 days. Married couple in their late 30s they were doing well both financially and professionally and now could relax a bit. Still head over heels for each other they had been married for 10 years now and found time to indulge in many activities together. This year they planned to go away for 10 days – but that plan was about to change.

Just as he was putting away their latest novels in one of the bookcases in the den/media room when the phone rang. She picked it up and let him know that it was a former neighbour of theirs. This friend informed them that his sister’s Golden Retriever has just had a litter of puppies that were now a few weeks old, right time to go to new homes and did they want one? She hesitated a bit but he was all excited – a dog of his own again, that would be great. His enthusiasm rubbed off on him and they decided to go take a look. In  two days they were at the neighbour’s sisters house, that had a huge cracked window, the two of them were overwhelmed at seeing the loveable puppies waddling about with fll roly poly bellies post feeding. At 45 days old the cute puppies were excitable and energetic and ran circles around the couple. They could not choose.

Finally it was the puppy that chose them – one of the bunch, a girl pup kept licking him and her alternatively even after the others  went to their mom, as if to say “I choose you to be my humans. Take me home”! And it was settled. So off they went with the new member of their family in tow or rather in the passenger seat on her lap. They drove home happy and filled with love and got puppy settled in on her new doggie bed, with toys to play with and a big house to roam about and do mischief. Puppy spent the afternoon eating and then exploring when not showering puppy kisses and licks on her humans. Finally as evening arrived and the sun started to set, with no plans of going away for the holidays, she made some hot cocoa while he sat on the rug with his guitar and played/sang “Harvest Moon” and puppy came up to his leg, lay her head on it and fell asleep.
