Always ruining everything

The bed was covered in clothes. Cassie looked over her shoulder at the mirror. This dress wasn’t too bad. All she needed now was a matching pair of shoes.

‘Kaiser!’ Ted yelled from outside. ‘Incoming!’

The door flew open and a muddy dog bounded into the room.


Kaiser tipped his head, then coiled his body.


The dog shook himself vigorously.

Ted skidded into the room.


‘Sorry, Cass.’

‘Sorry isn’t going to get these clothes cleaned! Nor me washed and to my job interview on time! He has to go.’


‘Or you do. Men! Always ruining everything!’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Oh, I like this one, Rob. That ending is a very nice twist, too.
