Saturday Centus: Dear John

Jenny Matlock hosts the wonderful Saturday Centus, where she invites us to weave a tale around the word prompt she provides. Inclined to throw in extra challenges, she has limited us to 60 words this week using the prompt, 'Dear John'. This is my fervent, (but in good form), contribution...
.
Dear John:

I can't believe what a jerk you are! You steal my truck, take my money and run off with my sister! And then you kidnap my dog!?! I love that dog!

Keep the damned truck, and my cheating sister, but bring Brucie  back or I'll haunt you 'til the day you die! Seriously!!

Sincerely,
Lucy

I love it! A young bulldog is moving into my place - she is going to enjoy the big yard and having other dogs to play with - that brings the neighborhood dog count in the nearest four houses to NINE! All barkers:)
