Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

Share a picture of a COMPANION and explain why you chose that picture.



Having an animal, growing up with one and taking care of it is an experience that cannot be explained to somebody who have never had a pet.

However it is also a painful experience given that no animal can live as long as a human does. We outlive our beloved pets and it is an everlasting truth that one has to come to terms with.

The older we get the harder it is to accept it. We grow to love our companions, we cherish them and cater to their needs as they do to ours.

Personally I cannot imagine a life without a furry companion. Even though someday we will have to part forever I don’t think there is anything on this planet that can replace the gentle and caring bond one can form with an animal. Be it a dog, cat or hamster. We love them all, don’t we?

Antagonist’s favourite pet…


It’s a hound. An enormous, ugly, terrifying, ferocious dog. His name is Asgar. The legend has it that his teeth were soaked in the blood of thousands snakes and thus are poisonous. His nose has no match. Once he knows your scent he can find you everywhere, even in the most remote places. You cannot hide from this hound.

Asgar’s claws are sharp and lethal, always ready to strike his masters enemies. His master is not a cuddling type but when Asgar does please him, the dog gets a comfortable scratch behind the ear. When you take a look at the hound, for a moment you think that it is only a giant shadow that approaches you. A shadow with two sinisterly shining points of sickly yellow light. Asgar’s eyes can see far, far away. There is no point in running, he can spot you from miles away.

They say it cannot be killed…And frankly it might be the truth. The fact is no one came close enough to even try.

A fitting pet for such a merciless master, whose mere name resonates terror. An ideal weapon, sweeper, hunter, all wrapped up in one neat package of black fur, four paws and a tail.
