By Pup Shaggy
“Puppy…” he called. I was awake. Had been since the first time he called me, but was enjoying just lying there on that cushion, hidden in a short cage under his mattress… he’d have to come in and get me…
“Shaggy?” he called again. I murred a little. Still pretending to be asleep… but somehow he saw through me.
“I know your awake boy. Come on, up you get.” I groaned. Ah well. There’d be other times to play. So pulling myself up, I gave myself a stretch. I couldn’t sit up or kneel because of how short the cage was, and I still couldn’t see anything because of the bizarre pup hood gas mask I was wearing. The re-breather bag was still attached but I was too relaxed for it to really affect me. So instead, I reach out my hands and stretched that way. After that, I crawled over to the nearest side of the cage, following it around till I felt Alex’s hands. First went on the heavy chain leash as before through the bars and with a firm pull I was directed outside the cage through the gate as he unlocked it.
