Rair Pairs Prompt #11

Time for some new prompts? Hopefully today's the day you get that difficult bit sorted! Talk to me about your progress. ;-)

Here's the next 'long' prompt:

Your dog is tangled with my dog


Need a short prompt or two? Give me some numbers between 1 and 150 and I'll give you some (hopefully) inspirational words. Note: some of these may be suggestive, but you don't have to use them that way, OR you may ask me for another word to replace the one/s you don't like, and I'll find you something that's more general.

The next long prompt will be in two days time, but in the meantime if you need anything else, comment here and I'll reply as soon as I can!
