I want you to write about a needy pet. A pet that is loving, that is adorable, but wants a lot of attention. Maybe a favorite dog or cat? No, sorry. You have to pick a random one from a list of 10 mythical creatures, shown below. A link to the list, with descriptions, is here. And here's a random 1-10 generator.
Look up some details on your new pet: their likes, their dislikes, how they might express their neediness. Are you a hero, a stable hand, a long-suffering partner left at home? Usual rules, 1000 words or fewer, due noon-ish on Friday, September 6th.
