The Gifts of Dog

Three Shih Tzus were present at Susanna’s birth, and each had a gift to bestow. The first dog presented her with unparalleled cuteness, the second with street smarts, and the third with good judgment of character. Her parents were surprisingly happy with these gifts.

“Shih Tzu” by Barb Barcik Keith

“I had no idea doggie traits were so positive,” said her mother. Then a gust of wind blew open a window, and a Schnauzer leaped in. He was pissed off that he was not invited, and he had his own gift to bestow–the gift of procrastination. The rest of the gifts were sort of null after this one.
