I write a line of a story, then someone else writes a line then someone else writes a line...and so it goes.

No closed sentences allowed. If you write something with a full stop at the end then you must start a new sentence after it, with one word or more.

Ok, storytime starts now.

This morning, as usual, me being a working dog and all, I was awake before my mum and dad so I decided to .....

then stole his beer ...

07-20-2009, 10:21 AM
and told him he should go find his own sheep and cows. WELLLLLL...that didn't go over so well! Somehow, he has it in his head that since *I* am the heeler, *I* should go get the sheep and cows...but being a heeler does NOT make me a *finder* - so, I tipped that beer bottle over to get a sip, and next thing you know,

I'm hitting the trail looking for those sheep and cows when

07-20-2009, 11:30 AM
I started feeling the effects of that beer...ooo, a bit woozy...(I thought of Lizzie, and made a mental note to ask her about a 12-step program...)...when SUDDENLY - I spotted - a SHEEP!! It was weaving, or was I weaving?

I saw stars - or were those LED light thingies...

07-20-2009, 12:53 PM
...which turned out to be a UFO. I had heard Dad talk about spaceships before, but never thought I'd actually *see* one! All of a sudden, I felt my paws lift off from the ground. I still thought it was the wooziness from the beer, but I looked down and could see the ground all around me. I even spotted the missing cows and sheep, and started shrieking to Dad, when suddenly....

07-20-2009, 04:58 PM
I began falling, my silky soft fur slipping through the grasp of whatever it was that held me. As I fell I started to see

fell for it, hook, line and sinker, just like he always does. He really is such a sucker for a sad look. But Mom's even worse!!! However - they were both a little worried about the chicken (bones and all), so they decided to take me into town for a little treat, and then a hike along the beach. I LOVE to hike, and I LOVE to swim. So...
