100 word challenge – this week’s prompt is …the scent was overpowering…


The two dogs weren’t related. They had different colouring, different personalities.

Oska barked at people and would play in any water he came across. Izak barked at other animals and avoided water, stepped around puddles.

Their local walk was through a park, into woods and out via a country lane.

There were horse riders down the lane. Oska took his opportunity to roll in horse manure, knowing it would result in a telling off and a cold hose down when they got back home. The scent was overpowering but Oska thought the shampoo smell afterwards was worse.
