Here we are for another week, gathered today at a virtual park in a city neighborhood. We’re here as the Friday Fictioneers to discuss our original stories for this week. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for this group is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Roger Bultot. Thanks, Roger.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the little blue frog in the blue box after clicking on the link. The link for the other stories is as follows:
Genre: Realistic Fiction

GOOD DOG by P.S. Joshi
Laura drove back home from shopping and found smoke billowing out the top of her house, firemen at work trying to put out the blaze, and her two kids, blind father, and his guide dog, Debbie, standing out front.
“What’s happened, Dad?” she asked.
He stood holding his dog’s harness. “She knew something was seriously wrong before us. The kids, I, and Debbie were downstairs.. She started nudging me and barking. I took hold of the harness, and she brought us out to safety.”
The next day the story was in the local paper, DOG SAVES THREE PEOPLE FROM FIRE.
