As Scott held Dougie, he could not but feel sad. Dougie was Tina's dog and had been a great friend in the three years that he had lived with Tina. Inspite of a recent and bitter breakup with Tina, Scott had agreed to accompany her as she took Dougie to the Vet. Dougie had become excessively aggressive in recent weeks and was going to have his "dog-hood" removed. But little did Scott suspect, that after the visit to the "Vet", it would be someone else who was less of a male.

P.S. I couldn't help it; it was the pensive and sad look on the guy's face. If you haven't come across this Blog already, The Synchronicity of Indeterminacy, you should check it out. It has very creative stories, all inspired by photographs. Quite a few of them end with an O'Henry twist. The author also has a separate Blog for reader contributions.

I thank you a lot for contributing this. I'll repost it at Sunday night. We're just off for the weekend, and I couldn't take care of everything. I'll also add a link back to you.

Great story!

So Dougie and Tina didn't really break up?

Maybe they should get Neuticles for Dougie. Those artificial dog testicles will help the dog feel manly after his operation (I don't know if you got to read my post about these things).

Nice to see you back after being away for awhile. I kept checking-in, trying to get my dose of serious comedy.

Hi Phoenix,
I did read that article on Neuticles. But I doubt if those would really do it for Scott. Sorry I haven't gotten the chance to post anything new. I'm even working today and tomorrow to try and get some work done without getting interrupted. All I've been able to do, just to take my mind off work, is read the new posts on the Blogs I have on my list.
