Non-Fiction 55

Young Quincy hobbled along
on his teal cast
with the lime green
lightning bolt painted on it.
He tried pretending
he was a super hero,
but as his leg
dragged beside him
he was too slow
to live up to the
emblazoned lightning design.
Truly, he just had to face - his was a dog’s life.

Quincy looks just too adorable…You have written this post amazingly in that you have managed to give Quincy a whole new character and personality! Have a nice weekend!

Who woould name a puppy Quincy? Jays what they think he won't get in fights over his name?

I named the one I got, Ginger Goober.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Awww. Isn't he cute. At first I thought this was about a person until I saw the picture. Reminds me of the three-legged cat I saw hobbling across my sister's patio in the desert. Nice going here!

John's comments said...

Ah poor doggie. Late for me, this week, what with work demanding I do what I'm paid to do. I mean, what a cheek.

I love real life 55's!
We all have different super powers, even if it's just the ability to 'Charm'!
Excellent job brother!
Thanks for visiting, thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Titanium said...

The poor little chap. He's lucky he's got you (and probably a treat or two) to cheer him up.

RNSANE said...

Great 55 and your little Quincy, invalid though he is, must be a sweet patient.

Alice Audrey said...

It'll all be worth it when the darn thing comes off. At least we live in an age when something CAN be done about broken bones.

VE said...

But this does have a counting theme...Quincy is counting down until the cast is off and he can run again. Excellent 55...

Akelamalu said...

Aw poor Quincy, but he's so cute even with the green plaster! :)

Thanks for commenting on my 55. :)

PattiKen said...

Oh, how cute! I'm sure he is still a superhero to you!

Tracey said...

Ack! What happened?

Poor Quincy...

W.V. was exact then it reloaded... I thought that was cool!

Dulce said...

Owhhh that poor puppy ... sad, yet great 55!

Thom said...

Awww poor Quincy. He's still a super hero in my book. What a cutie he is. Well done my friend. You can just feel his annoyance with that :) Have a great weekend :)

Unknown Mami said...

Hang in there, Quincy! Even superheroes get injuries.

sheri... said...

thanks for the comment, monkey man...
loved your 55!

hope said...

Aw, poor pooch! And to have a lightning bolt and no spark left is almost cruel. :)

Hope he heals fast and doesn't tire you out. What? You don't expect him to let HIMSELF outside, do you? ;)

Prayer Girl said...

What an adorable dog with such a beautiful teal colored cast. Poor baby. Loved the 55.

Donnetta Lee said...

What a precious baby! He looks just like my white toy poodle, Percy Shelley. Hope he is on the mend! D

Leslie said...

Awww- my heart is stolen. As a nurse, I am always falling in love with he infirmed

Nice 55

cheers

I'm at moondustwriter.com if mr. Q needs some TLC

Peter Stone said...

Aww, the poor thing, must be hard for a dog to put up with a leg in a cast.
Though, the 'emblazoned lightning design' reminded me of Bolt...

C.M. Jackson said...

superheroes are always handsome and Quincy is no exception--hope he is feeling better soon. Something tells that you will miss him when he goes home;-)

lime said...

poor little fellow. i hope he's scampering all over the place sooner rather than later.

Jon Parsons said...

It's tough when reality hits you hard like that! But I'm sure Young Quincy will bounce back perfectly.
