Today’s snippet is from my upcoming book, Sam’s Story: The Life and Times of a Tiny Bird with a Huge Personality. It’s told from the point of view of my grey-cheeked parakeet, Sam. In this scene, our German shepherd, Schatzi, is having a disagreement of sorts with our potbellied pig, Iggy, after a calamity involving a building inspector….
“The guy told him he’d been attacked by a two-hundred-pound hog in the bedroom!”
Iggy was insulted. “Two hundred pounds? He needs his eyes examined–and his head, too, while he’s at it!”
“You could stand to lose a little around the ham hocks,” Schatzi laughed.
“Bite me, Bubblebutt!” Iggy snapped.
Schatzi almost did. “Just remember, I bite back,” Iggy warned.
“You have no sense of humor,” Schatzi grumbled.
“Not true. I happen to be a very funny pig,” Iggy insisted.
