55 - St. Patrick's Meh!


Saint Patrick’s Day? 
He could care less. 
Wearing no green, 
he feared no pinch. 
Green beer was of no interest. 
March 17 would come and go 
just like any other day. 
His thoughts on this day 
would be much more focused 
and moment to moment. 
Eat. 
Sleep. 
Take a walk. 
Poop. 
It's a dog’s life.


This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55
hosted by Mr. Knowitall.
For more 55's pay him a visit -

Good one! Wasn't expecting the poochie twist.

Hey did you see the green kids over at Millie's? Cute. I guess goats are more into St Pat's than the canine contingent.

Ha - It is a dog's life but he really is missing out on the green beer.

Thanks for the visit MM
until next time

dustus said...

Caught me off-guard as the 55 has a great PSA sounding set-up to it.

Helen said...

You played this perfectly ....

razzamadazzle said...

What a great 55! That looks like the way my dog is doing the holiday!

Brian Miller said...

and maybe a belly rub...cute pup!

G-Man said...

What a Lazy Boy!
Although I bet he would like a green beer!
Loved your Dogmatic 55 Brother!
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End!

Monkey Man said...

That's my big headed dumb ass dog, Ezmond, warming my feet.

Autumnforest said...

Aw, he's missing all the fun! Thankfully, he's not eating the corned beef and cabbage, though!

hedgewitch said...

He's obviously not an Irish setter. My Jack Russell would drink green beer, or just about anything else, probably, but I'm respecting his Brit roots. Great 55.

Sandra said...

haha! I loved this! I've missed you! How come I don't come by more often? I really like you, we sort of had a love affair going on and then you got a job!

Janna said...

Sounds like my cats' life...
And mine too, come to think of it.

I didn't wear green on Thursday either.
Black shirt, black sweater, and jeans.

No pinches!
I guess that's sort of a good thing.
Maybe.

Matty said...

You bet. Just another day. As for us, we went out to a local Irish place. Jam packed.

A Daft Scots Lass said...

*woof*

Thats doggie for mines up too, believe it or not.

Have a wicked weekend

MorningAJ said...

Awww bless!
A bowl of Irish stew, maybe?

I'm up here

ladynimue said...

Great !

Jinksy said...

55 - And all in a goblet shape! LOL

budh.aaah said...

Ah a dogs life at times seems so much more peaceful..

hpicasso said...

I bet a green doggy biscuit would have been cool...you pay respect to the obvious we ignore daily...

Peace, hp

Tabor said...

So true...never thought of it that way!

izzy said...

Fun! and I agree- green beer does nothing for me, dog or not! thanks.

Deborah said...

Wonderfully true!

5thsister said...

HA! I felt much like that as well yesterday! :o)

Titanium said...

Smart dog. He didn't miss a damn thing, either. Perfect 55, MM!

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

I think my dogs felt the same way, MM. Funny 55!

anthonynorth said...

It can be indeed. Nice one :-)

Jingle said...

That's why dogs are called dogs,
human folks are smart folks...

well played humor.
enjoyed your 55.

Belinda Munoz said...

Not even a shamrock shake would interrupt this program, eh?

Pheromone Girl said...

I won't tell you about the whiskey I snuck him under the table...

Happy Friday.

Unknown Mami said...

Sometimes I wouldn't mind being a dog.

kavisionz said...

hahahaha... this is sooo true... nothing seems to be bothering him, alright.. good for him!!

Mama Zen said...

Smart dog!

Olivia said...

Like the canine cares not for anything or anyone!

Smiles xx

joanny said...

Ezmond knows how to enjoy life, my little dog wore a green bow tie. I didn't play the ff55, overload from work stuff, .. Your ff55 was very clever and witty, nice write.

Doctor FTSE said...

A bit like our cats! They both sleep a lot, 24hrs a day is typical. Often much more!
Excellent 55.

Sandra said...

See, I'm back looking for some new material from you, but nothing!...see, you got a job, too busy to create marvellous poetry!

Marla said...

LOL

Love that dog of yours.
