This was written for Carrot Ranch’s 2020 Writing Rodeo Event # 3, which required six words from the song “Git Along Little Dogies” in a unique 99-word story in the genre of your choice. It won First Prize 🙂
Molly’s nerves were a-jinglin’ driving the buggy back to the ranch. As a new bride fresh from the city, she tried to be a real country wife for Earl, cooking and milking the cow, and she tried to use Wyoming words whenever she could.
When Earl came in, she said ‘I got you a present’.
‘Well, that’s real nice, Molly. What is it?’
‘A dog to keep you company when you’re on the trail!’
She opened the bedroom door and out strolled a Dachshund.
‘And you didn’t think I was listening when you said ‘git a long little’ doggie.’
