You have 20 minutes to write a post that includes the words mailbox, Bluejay, plate,syrup and ink.And one more detail….. the story must include a dog named Bob.

Sally’s little daughter cried every day, since she saw her friend Samantha’s got a cute little puppy.

All she ever said every day was,  ” Mom, I want a puppy too.”

A puppy her Mom would say but you don’t know how to take care of it, Jenny.”

Jenny would not give up crying so Mom went to SPCA to look for one. “This one is abandoned by his owners, they had named him Bob,  please do not change his name, stick to the name Bob.”

Jenny was ready to call him Bob, “what’s in a name she said, we had to  give him a name, now that he has one we’d certainly call him Bob.”

So the family agreed to call the puppy Bob. Bob had some peculiar habits, whenever the mailman came, he’d jump up to see what was in the mailbox.

His food had to be served on a plate or he refused to eat. One day Jenny and her dog were busy playing in their front lawn, suddenly a Bluejay landed on the fountain and started drinking water. Bob was thrilled he tried hard to catch the bird but it flew away. That evening he was in a bad mood , he didn’t come to Jenny but sat in the corner of the verandah and started sulking.

Jenny wanted to play with Bob, but he was in no mood, Jenny poured a tiny bit of syrup in Bob’s bowl of water to see if he’d be interested to drink it, Bob came slowly and licked it once, he never had sweet water before he was delighted he lapped it up within minutes.

Next day Jenny got a bottle of ink she filled her pen and practiced her writing, Jenny forgot to put the cover on the bottle, well jeepers keepers Bob was in a jovial mood he rushed to Jenny to give her hug,  he toppled the bottle and spilled all the remaining ink, Mom was unhappy when she saw the mess.

Jenny defended Bob by saying, “Mom he’s only a dog he doesn’t know how to be careful!”
