Although sometimes it seemed to Buster as if it had been forever since Steve Darling and Maggie Dear had taken him into their home, the reality of the matter was that it had only been one year…exactly one year as of today.
For the spirited young pup, it had been a very good year indeed. Steve Darling was gone much more than Buster might have liked but was never too tired when he returned home for them to play ball or to go exploring the neighborhood around them.
Maggie Dear was always so loving to him; rubbing his belly just right and even making him special treats like the indescribably yummy treat she called a “cupcake” just for his special day.
This story was written for the weekly Five Sentence Fiction flash fiction prompt: bliss.
