Honorable Mentions

Dog Days

Hey guys! I’m distracting myself from stressing about wedding planning so how about some fluff? Well, more crack, but oh well. Everything I write ends up crack-y. 

Prompt from: @supremeuppityone :Caroline is training their new puppy with treats and Klaus’ canine side inadvertently is affected and he twitches/jolts to his feet whenever she brings out the dog treats?

“Come​ ​on​ ​Buddy-”​ ​Klaus’​ ​lip​ ​curled​ ​at​ ​the​ ​mention​ ​of​ ​the​ ​golden​ ​retriever​ ​as​ ​he​ ​walked​ ​into​ ​the foyer​ ​of​ ​the​ ​mansion,​ ​Caroline’s​ ​voice​ ​trickling​ ​in​ ​from​ ​the​ ​living​ ​room-​ ​“All​ ​you​ ​have​ ​to​ ​do​ ​is​ ​sit.” 

 He​ ​noted​ ​the​ ​frustration​ ​in​ ​her​ ​voice​ ​and​ ​was​ ​unable​ ​to​ ​hide​ ​a​ ​triumphant​ ​grin​ ​from​ ​spreading across​ ​his​ ​face​ ​as​ ​he​ ​walked​ ​in​ .​ ​He​ ​absolutely​ ​detested​ ​the​ ​little​ ​yellow​ ​creature that​ ​Caroline​ ​had​ ​begged,​ ​nay​ ​coerced,​ ​him​ ​into​ ​getting​ ​a​ ​few​ ​weeks​ ​earlier.​ ​She’d​ ​been​ ​hinting around​ ​it​ ​for​ ​a​ ​few​ ​months,​ ​him​ ​shooting​ ​her​ ​down​ ​with​ ​a​ ​flat​ ​no​ ​every​ ​time.​

 It​ ​wasn’t​ ​until​ ​she trapped​ ​him​ ​one​ ​morning​ ​after​ ​a​ ​mind-blowing​ ​orgasm​ ​where​ ​the​ ​sun​ ​had​ ​hit​ ​her​ ​smile​ ​so brilliantly,​ ​streaming ​in​ ​from​ ​their​ ​bedroom​ ​window,​ ​where​ ​she​ ​asked​ ​him​ ​for​ ​a​ ​favor​ ​and​ ​he​ ​said yes​ ​before​ ​even​ ​asking​ ​what​ ​it​ ​was. 

Needless​ ​to​ ​say,​ ​he​ ​was​ ​​not​​ ​happy​ ​that​ ​afternoon​ ​when​ ​they​ ​went​ ​to​ ​the​ ​animal​ ​shelter​ ​later​ ​that day​ ​and​ ​he​ ​signed​ ​the​ ​adoption​ ​papers​ ​as​ ​Caroline​ ​fawned​ ​over​ ​the​ ​mutt.  

She​ ​named​ ​him​ ​Buddy​ ​on​ ​the​ ​way​ ​home​ ​(“Uh,​ ​hello?​ ​Haven’t​ ​you​ ​ever​ ​seen​ ​Air​ ​Bud?”),​ ​and​ ​her attention​ ​​remained​ ​on​ ​the​ ​blasted​ ​animal​ ​since​ ​then.   

“I’m​ ​home,”​ ​he​ ​called,​ ​his​ ​eyes​ ​instantly​ ​finding​ ​Caroline​ ​sitting ​by​ ​the​ ​fireplace,​ ​Buddy standing​ ​in​ ​front​ ​of​ ​her,​ ​his​ ​red​ ​tongue​ ​out​ ​and​ ​tail​ ​wagging​ ​happily.  

“Hey!”​ ​she​ ​called​ ​back,​ ​looking​ ​quickly​ ​over​ ​her​ ​shoulder.​ ​“I’m​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​teach​ ​Buddy​ ​how​ ​to​ ​sit.”  

Klaus​ ​rolled​ ​his​ ​eyes,​ ​glaring​ ​at​ ​the​ ​dog.​ ​The​ ​puppy​ ​stared​ ​back​ ​at​ ​him,​ ​his​ ​tail​ ​going​ ​limp​ ​and​ ​a deep​ ​growl​ ​starting​ ​to​ ​reverberate​ ​from​ ​his​ ​chest.​ ​Klaus​ ​bared​ ​his​ ​teeth​ ​lightly​ ​at​ ​him​ ​before crossing​ ​his​ ​arms​ ​over​ ​his​ ​chest​ ​as​ ​he​ ​moved​ ​further​ ​into​ ​the​ ​room.  

“Why​ ​does​ ​he​ ​do​ ​that​ ​every​ ​time​ ​he​ ​sees​ ​you?”​ ​Caroline​ ​groaned.​ ​“He’s​ ​our​ ​dog.​ ​He’s supposed​ ​to​ ​love​ ​us.”  

“He’s​ ​not​ ​the​ ​alpha ​in​ ​the​ ​house​ though, love,”​ ​Klaus​ ​said​ ​cheekily,​ ​playfully​ ​flashing​ ​his yellow​ ​eyes​ ​at​ ​her.  

That caused Buddy to bark and Klaus glared back at the dog. Buddy growled again but turned his attention back to Caroline. She rolled her eyes and pet the dog’s head. 

“Literally dealing with two alpha male egos in one house and I think yours is the worst,” Caroline teased, shooting him a playful glare. 

Klaus just grinned. 

Caroline reached into a bag next to her legs and pulled out a treat, dangling it in front of Buddy.

Seal steal – playful pup tries to take camera

This playful seal pup really loves the camera so much so that it tried to steal one. Caroline Robertson-Brown, 44, was leading a group of underwater photographers around the Farne Islands, off the coast of Northumberland, to photograph the grey seal population.

But as the trip came to an end one curious seal was keen to keep a memento and tried to swipe her camera. Her partner Nick Robertson-Brown, 64, managed to capture their tug of war on camera.

Caroline, from Manchester, said: The seal had a good try and stealing my camera. I was right at the surface, at the end of a great dive, and this particular seal had been interacting with the group for about 15 minutes. (Caters News)
