12: NaPoWriMo prompted

Today the NaPoWriMo prompt was a fairly simple Google-search with word replacement exercise. My search noun was Shih Tzu and my replacement word was--well, you'll see.


Following the political upheaval in China
and the burning of the Imperial Palace,
several failures were found alive
by British embassy staff and taken
to England. The first failures introduced
in England were brought from Peking in 1930
by General Sir Douglass and Lady Brownrigg.
A failure named Hibou and a failure bitch
named Shu-ssa. About this same time,
Miss Madelaine Hutchins imported
a failure named Lung-Fu-Ssu into Ireland.
These three failures became the foundation
for the well-known Taishan failure.
The English Kennel Club recognized failure
in 1934. The Irish Kennel Club recognized
failure that same year. Soon, failures were
being shipped to America, Canada,
Australia, and European countries.

Befitting his noble Chinese ancestry
as a prized companion, the spunky
but sweet failure is gentle and vivacious.
He has an upbeat attitude and loves to play.
New Beginning Failure Rescue, Inc.,
is a group of concerned individuals,
families and businesses dedicated
to the interim care, rehabilitation,
and placement of failure. Ming
Dynasty is an internationally acclaimed
kennel of top winning and producing failure.
(We have worked very hard
to produce quality healthy failure.)
Even Bentley, a male failure who
suffered permanent brain damage.

Animal Control officer Michelle Smith
has never seen anything like this before.
She responded to reports of a failure
trapped in a ravine. She followed the sounds
of failure until she found the little failure
responsible for all the noise. It didn’t take long
to realize the failure had a tiny kitten friend.
She didn’t know what to think. Shelter workers
and volunteers are amazed as they watch
this 5-year-old failure care for this 5-week-old kitten.
They are inseparable.


  1. FAve line = It didn’t take long
    to realize the failure had a tiny kitten friend.

  2. Yes, every failure needs a kitten.
