The farm was nestled deep in the country, down a dusty road was a lovely house and barn; where horses ran and jumped in a meadow beyond, and fat cows mooed and chickens clucked, and a rooster welcomed each dawn and strutted proudly. Farmer Hector Cuckleburr, Hec for short and his, wife Josephine Cuckleburr had many other animals; oh yes many, like pigs and sheep, and babies too and the delight at having lots of jumping baby lambs which brings me to a little dog called, Smidget Puggily. Smidget Puggily was the smallest of the Pugs born, and the other Pugs pushed her away at play; squeaking you are too small, Smidget Puggily, go away, so she did, wandering the barn yard she saw something, that bleated and stretched from a curled up sleep. Hello, said Smidget Puggily, gosh you are pretty, thanks, was the reply, and I am smart too, a leader; I could teach you things, be your guru, your teacher, your guide around this farm, see how high I can jump, and with that, she jumped in the air and bleated load. I will name you Prettisome Guru, and I am your student, show me how to jump, soon Smidget Puggily was jumping; lets play follow the leader said Prettisome Guru, just follow, Smidget Puggily, listen to me, I have excellent vision, hearing, and smell, but best of all I like to cuddle up and get touchy. Well, from that day forward those two walked the farm yard, with the Smidget Puggily following her Prettisome Guru faithfully; farmer Hec and his wife Josephine would stop and laugh, when they found those two curled up asleep, all cuddled up, and that was often- those two slept most of the day actually. _________________________________ March 1, 2019 Written for the contest, The Smidget Puggily and Her Prettisome Guru sponsor, Caren Krutsinger
