This is Camellia!!!! She is a 6 year old Pekingese and such a sweet girl! We rescued her from our local dog shelter after her owners, who were breeders, gave her up because she was unable to have puppies. She loves posing for pictures and will dance for treats!
Description: You’re casually strolling around your local dog park. Nothing unusual. That is until you get made into the biggest fool alive. Oh yeah and its in front of the most attractive boy you’ve ever met. Great.
Warning: Adorable puppies and the misuse of commas in about every other sentence. Good luck.
The slight breeze brushed against the red, orange and yellow leaves that kissed the clean blue sky. Surrounding birds were gaily tweeting their special songs, nestled between branches. My black lab, Grizzly, and I were exploring the dog park I always said I would go to but never had the time to visit. School had given me the wonderful temporary release from my daily confinement called Christmas break.
Grizz was crazy excited, running around in the new expanse and sniffing everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) in sight. One earbud in my ear was singing the new song by my favorite artist that I’ve been DYING to hear. No seriously. I was almost in a car crash because of my ranting to my amused but slightly scared friend about its release. Skipping with the beat, it was unfortunate I wasn’t paying attention to my surroundings. A tennis ball soared through the air and came into contact with my head. Considerably dismantled, I didn’t notice the gnarly branch peeking out of the ground waiting for its next unsuspecting victim (the first being the adorably clumsy human you’re about to meet).
“Oh my gosh! I’m terribly sorry! I didn’t see you!”
The most gorgeous (British) voice traveled through the air meeting my delighted ears. Graceful footsteps sounded across the grassy terrain stopping near where I sat.
“Here, let me help you.” An elegant pale hand reached down to aid me.
“Oh, thanks. It’s really alright. That happens a lot more than it should.” It was completely embarrassing to have fallen in front of a complete stranger. I couldn’t quite get the courage to look up at him yet.
“So idiot blokes like me hit you with tennis balls making you fall over branches in a dog park often? You must be quite special.”
Oh gosh. He’s laughing. Can this get any more embarrassing? Is it possible to spontaneously combust from embarrassment? If it is, let it happen.
I slowly look up at him and am completely taken aback. There are no words. What are words? HOW DO YOU ENGLISH? OH NO HE’S TALKING TO ME!! BRAIN!! WORK!!
“Uh, I-I-I’m Tom. Again, terribly sorry. I was just playing with my dog.”
“I-it’s really fine. My name is (y/n). I’m here with my dog, too. Uh, I mean, obviously. Its a dog park. Its not like I’m here to kidnap dogs or anything. Oh gosh, that probably sounded terrible. I have a dog. I love dogs….heh.”
“You’re completely fine, though? Nothing got hurt when you fell?” he seemed genuinely concerned. Cute.
“Only my ego. I guess there wasn’t much of it there anyways.” Then he laughed. Did he think I was funny..?
“Hah! That’s hilarious! (phew) What breed is your dog?” “Grizzly is a black lab.” “Oh cute. Little Tessa is an American Staffordshire Terrier.”
It was as if they knew we were talking about them when our two bounding dogs barked their way over to their owners.
“Hey buddy! Did you make a new friend? Oh really? Isn’t that fun? Yeah you were a good boy weren’t you? Good dog.”
Reaching down to pet Tessa, Tom watched as I completely dropped any nervousness I previously had. Looking up, I noticed him staring.
“Oh sorry. I’m a bit puppy crazy..” “Not don’t apologize.. do you want to meet Tess?” “Um.. of course!”
“Okay okay. Ha! You really love pups, don’t you? Tessa. Meet (y/n). She’s my new friend.”
Tessa inched over to sniff my hand and immediately started nuzzling it. She flopped onto her back, begging for a scratch.
“Aww! Hey baby girl! Aren’t you adorable!”
While I played with Tessa, Grizzly leaped over to Tom. Shying away from his hand, Grizz seemed to be playing a game with the brit, letting him get close but not quite touching. Tom seemed a bit disappointed.
“It’s ok. He does that with everyone he likes.” “He likes me?” “Definitely.”
Feeling better, Tom and Grizzly started to chase each other around the field. After playing with the puppies for a while, it was time to head home.
“I better get going. The fam might worry..” “Oh yeah of course… it was great to meet you and Grizz.” “Likewise.”
Calling Grizz and making our way out, I took a last glance at our new friends and left the park.
(Jk its not over XD)
“What’s up, Tom?” “ I really liked spending time with you and Tessa seems to really like you too and you’re really cool and I think you’re really pretty and.. and..” “Tom?”
He sighed. “Yeah?”
“Do you want my number?” I tried to stifle my laugh as he let out the most relieved sigh.
“Yes.” I hand him folded piece of paper. “I figured.”
I then left feeling confident and proud of myself with the way I left things. I felt pretty cool.. you know until I tripped walking down the street. I really hope he didn’t see that. I look back and see him laughing and waving.
So I work at a pet store and I had some woman walk in today looking for dog treats. I showed her to a case where we keep a bunch of locally made treats that dogs go crazy for. I wanted to really convince her to buy them, so I told her that they were FDA approved, so even humans could eat them since so many owners worry about what is in their pets food. She said that she would take a few and pulled one out of the case, and in the middle of me explaining that she could put them in a paper bag to hold on to, she just. Takes a fucking bite of this dog treat.
