Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Forty-Four

We wanted a puppy. But Maw said no. Said we wasn’t responsible enough. Said we neglected the animals we had got, so no puppy. 

We sulked a bit, but then Elmer said Maw had a point. So we knuckled down and helped her about the place, learning to care for the cow and the sheep, and the yard dogs, and the horses. 

We was so busy we near to forgot about the puppy. But Maw never forgets nothing.

We come in from the yard one time and there’s a box by the fire. Maw smiles as the puppy jumps out…
