Previously in our story, Petey the dog escaped his backyard in search of his missing master, and was picked up by a lady who gave him treats, put a choke collar on him, and took him to a cabin where strange people were eating pizza. Petey snuck out of the cabin and has just encountered a scary beast in the moonlight…
And now… part 11:
I roll to my back and the beast is upon me, grabbing one of my floppy ears in his teeth. Though I’m beagle-sized, I have as much fight as a dire wolf. I grew up on the streets! Growling, I latch onto his throat, and maybe let out just a little pee.
Smelling my white flag, the beast releases my ear and audibly yawns. I release his throat, seizing the opportunity to scramble to my feet. The beast’s legs are more than twice the length of mine, so I don’t even have to crouch to walk under his belly to get a good whiff under his tail. Beast sniffs under mine and we wag at the same time because we recognize each other’s smell-names.
I know Beast from the street!
Human voices are coming through the snowy woods, so I quickly tell Beast that I’m looking for my human. Before he can tell me if he has any leads, Beast says he doesn’t get along so well with two-leggeds, so he wishes me good luck and bolts off into the trees.
“Petey! Petey!” I hear the worried voice of the psychic lady with the magic purse. Maybe she can help me, I think, giving myself a good full-body shake from my tail to the tips of my floppy ears. As I shimmy, I hear the jingle of the chain collar the psychic lady put around my neck. She wants to control me!
Since I don’t think I can trust her, I run off after Beast, following his enormous paw tracks in the snow.
Check in tomorrow for the next installment from Alasandra, the Cats and Dogs.
