Six Words for Cabana

very close up shot of cabana curled up in a circle with her paw folding under her chin, you can see her eye whiskers, is that what they're called?
Author Patricia McConnell's dog, Lassie, passed away a couple days ago. In her post about it, she refers to Hemingway's shortest story, just 6 words long: For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.

She then adds her 6-word tribute to Lassie: French vanilla. Ice cream. Summer day.

I shed a few tears as I read the 6-word tributes left by over 250 commenters on her blog. They were so clever and touching and inspired me to try a 6-word story about Cabana. Sweet surprise. Care taker. Heart melter.

What are your dog's 6 words?

Wow Ro, that's so perfect for "Insert"!!! Only 2 weeks to go!

"Curious. Generous. Eyes beg belly rubs." Must go over to Lassie's blog. Leaky just reading about it.
Hugs xo

Okay ... they just beeped to tell me my next client is ready! But pondering my six words ... My Eyes. Selfless. Tender Heart. Silly.

So hard!! Dagan would be Sweet spirit. Lap warmer. Food monger. But he could also be: Eager pleaser. Cuddle bunny. Always starving.

Poppy is Boundless energy. Smile inducer. Limit tester.

Wow, this is a neat idea. For my main pup, his six would be, "Bright. Regal Exuberance. Squeak. Ball. Heart."

Hope you don't mind me adding you to my blog list. I raised 3 puppies for The Seeing Eye, have 2 back with me, 1 I'm training for Search & Rescue. If you'd like to read my blog, just let me know. :-)
