Today is August 3rd and the third of the ten day Blog Shorts – Dog Days of Summer festival with the hostess of hostesses, Blogdramedy. This is my second round with one of her creations, following the Bog Festivus last December. You can expect some hilarity and hard to believe fiction from those brave enough to strap on their helmets for this wild ride. Each day we take a famous pooch and have our crack at telling their hidden story.
Lassie gets her time in the spotlight after falling out of the gossip columns for way too long. What could a beautiful Collie have to say after all this time? Let’s check in with the famous kid rescuer to see.
“Do you know how many times I was called a dog?”
“I have no idea,” the reporter replied.
“I mean look at the Kardashians. I heard their name is going to be added to the pictorial dictionary as proof of what a real dog is.”
“That’s not kind.”
“Do you think I got where I am being kind?”
“I suppose not.”
“Rin Tin Tin was kind, until he got neutered. Then he went all “Cujo” on everybody. They put him down.”
“How about a comeback?”
“Are you saying I am a has been?”
“No, just been a while between movies.”
“Then my makeup crew earns their money. I been around.”
