Connor was like a devoted puppy, always following her around, getting under her feet. The comparison also seemed apt for his undisguised affection and sloppy cuddles.

Like a puppy, he left a trail of mess and destruction in his wake, and yet she could never stay angry with him for long when he looked at her with those big, dark eyes.

Like a confused, lost puppy, he always came back to her, no matter how many times she kicked him.

It wouldn’t have been so bad if she was a dog lover.

Unfortunately, Abby had always been a lizard girl.

Great punchline! And sums up their relationship perfectly.

thanks. I do like condensing their relationship down into drabbles. Unfortunately they usually end up being angsty drabbles!

PS. If you haven't already spotted it by the time you get this comment, check out Cordy's picspam of prettiness. I think you'll like it :-)

I'd been pondering something with Connor for this drabble all week, but it suddenly fell into place when I thought of the puppy thing.

Aww, poor Connor, esp with that last line. Lovely drabble.

Awwww. *MEEP* Poor Connor. She'll figure out she likes puppies eventually. She's just been kicked a lot herself.

I know, it was sort of a fun and fluffy drabble at first, and then I decided it needed somethng more and suddenly the bit about him being kicked slipped in there and it all went a bit angsty.

Meep - puppies grow up... And when Caroline puppy comes to play, things might change ;)

Great last line, even with the angst!

Indeed, puppies grow up, and then he'll *still* be just as loyal and devoted, bless him.

Oh gosh, yes, so true!

hee, thanks. It seemed a good comparison for Connor.

Oh dear! Poor Connor!

Ha! How very clever. And so very sad :(
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 9th, 2012 05:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks,. Poor Connor and his puppy eyes. And yey for your appropriate icon (I don't even like dogs, and I think that's cute!)

Starrylizard's puppy is the best thing ever! :D

Awwwwwww, that had quite the sting in the tail!

Poor Connor *pets him*

It's wrong of me to giggle but that last line make me laugh.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 9th, 2012 07:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
That seems a reasonable reaction, to be honest. The first draft was a lot more light-hearted, but the more I worked on it, the angstier it got!

Bittersweet drabble. Liked Abby realising her heart really isn't in it.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 10th, 2012 05:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Poor Connor, I'm mean to him.

Great take on their relationship, especially after reading the episode reviews you've been doing.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 14th, 2012 06:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, poor Connor spends so much time chasing after Abby.
