First Date

20 years ago

art school

strolling through her space


a photocopy on her wall

an italian sculpture titled

dog defecating


a massive bronze retriever

curving his body

immortalized forever


she chuckled …

isn’t it hilarious

someone went out of their way

to create this


I’ve always loved her quirkiness

her unusual sense of humor


I had to ask her out


Dog Defecating

  1. She sounds great, I love this!

    I had to keep talking to my husband when I first met him as I had fallen off the dance floor and into the bar, he was a complete stranger to me as he picked up my heeled shoe, kissed it and said ‘Don’t worry darling, I know what it’s like to be in heels’

    There is nothing like a great love story, especially those than involve statues of bronze dogs ;)

  2. When I first met the man I married, his smile when he saw me lit up his face. He couldn’t stop smiling. He hasn’t yet all these years later. He still laughs in the right places at my stories. I enjoyed your story a lot, and the sculpture is very funny.
