on Monday with Magaly at the Real Toads, Open Link Monday (Link)
Kerry's Challenge: "reimagine an iconic literary character or monologue as presented from the point of view of a close animal companion (or one that just happens to be passing by). Alternately, you may like to write a poem about yourself from your pet's perspective. Have fun with this idea - the only stipulation is that the narrative voice of the poem be non-human."
Katrin is our 14-year-old Toy Poodle. She was eight when the picture was taken and the dog/squirrel game of "chase" ended with the squirrel up the tree. Katrin was new then to us, she was given to us, when the former owner died we were her choice. (more Katrin posts HERE)
Adi, my beagle dog (she died a couple of years ago) shows us how dogs play the game of "shake": (more Adi posts HERE)

My iconic literary character? It might be one of Edgar Allen Poe's "victims",
i.e., "The Pit and the Pendulum".
