Flash Fiction Challenge: Sea Dog

Sea Dog

There’s nothing like the salt spray on your snout, the gentle undulation of the ship as she dances on the waves.

We are finally under way to take these pesky humans to some port they call “vacation.”

I’ll be glad to be rid of them. Hope nothing goes awry. Continue reading “Flash Fiction Challenge: Sea Dog”
