This year, one of the Challenges I signed up for is Blog All About It, hosted by The Herd Presents. The guideline is basically a blogging prompt challenge. Each month there’s a different prompt that you can interpret as you’d like then create a blog post around it. The 2018 list of prompts can be seen here on my Challenge Page. I will be posting for this Challenge on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
Why did I choose this Challenge? Well, if you have followed this blog, you know that I love Challenges, even though I may not complete all the ones I sign up for. I just find it to be fun. Another reason I decided to do this Challenge, is that I realized it has been ages since I have actually blogged, other than posting reviews, interviews, guest posts, giveaways, etc. Over the past few years, being busy organizing VBTs, I have slacked off with one of the main reasons I joined the Book Blogging Community.
This month’s prompt is: GROWL
This month’s prompt had me a bit stumped as to where I would go with it. But, I would assume, that when one hears and/or sees the word growl, an animal would be associated with it. Or is it just me?
My whole life, we always had a dog, up until approximately 10 years ago. The last dog, we shared our house with was my oldest son’s dog, Bronx, a Weimaraner named for the NY Yankees. Bronx was a beautiful and smart dog, however, he suffered from a severe case of separation anxiety. And with Paul in college and also working, it was Bronx and me throughout the day/night. We soon discovered how bad his anxiety was. When Paul left the house, the dog would bark for hours, HOURS! When I would try to discipline him, he would show his teeth and growl at me. Being a large dog, I will admit, he frightened me. From the first growl, Bronx and I had a mutual dislike for each other. Paul graduated from college and 2 months later, found a job in his field but it was out of state.
As I said, he was a beautiful dog and we repaired our relationship, once he moved with my son and we would go to visit. Two years ago, Bronx passed away from Cancer. Needless to say, my son was devastated but unfortunately, the radiation and surgery could not save him.
Now, the only thing that growls in our house, is our stomachs when we are hungry!!!!
