JusJoJan: 10 Jan 2020: Dogs

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 10th, 2020, is “dogs.” Use the word “dogs” any way you’d like. Enjoy!


Talking about dogs makes my heart beat faster. Dogs are supposed to be a mans best friend. Why does it happen so often that man abuse them? They only want to give everything to their loved ones.

My favourite dog breed is the miniature Schnauzer. I bought one in 1980 and haven’t been without one or two since then. When I came to New Zealand in 2009 I decided not to get myself a dog again. Famous last words. It only took me nearly two years before I bought my dear Trompie. I told my son that I saw an advertisement for eight week old puppies on Trade me. He suggested that we should go and have a look. That was the worst decision I made, to just go and have a look. 

I love female dogs more than males. In the group of eight puppies was only one bitch and she was kind of sold already. I kept on looking at those sweet puppies. I couldn’t resist the urge to buy one. I had the money, so, why not buy one anyway. That’s what happened. We didn’t turn home empty-handed. On the ride home, we came up with the name of Trompie.

Trompie is the name of a young boy who is the leader of a group of boys who come up with all kinds of mischievous. A very popular series of books which was also later filmed.
