“What do you think, McGruff? This wasn’t one of us.”
My gray-tailed partner sticks his paws in his trench coat and eyes the pile of turds with undisguised suspicion. “No it wasn’t, Labrador Wayne,” he growls. “We Big Dogs are well trained. We follow the Code. This was someone else. Someone with no morals or respect for society.”
“Cats?” I examine the steaming feces lying on the grass. Hot vapor curls around it like fresh gunsmoke. “Would they be so bold?”
“They’d be fools to break the truce.” McGruff raises his snout and scans the wind. “It’s possible…but still, I doubt it.”
“Who else could—”
A voice from behind a bush screams, “BIG DOGS! YOUR END IS NIGH!” Chihuahuas pour from every possible nook and cranny: rocks, fences, trees, cars…
“NOT-DOGS!” McGruff shouts. “PREPARE YOURSELF, KENT!”
“RAAAHHH!!!” I snarl furiously as a horde of Not-Dogs swamp us both. I beat the shit out of them with my paws and my teeth, but there’s…
Until I reach into my pocket and open my eReader to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers. Magic flash.
“BIG DOGS ETERNUS!” A magic portal forms in the air. Labradors, Retrievers, Pitties, Ridgebacks…they all come pouring from the interdimensional rip; butts wagging, tongues flopping. They run rampant through the Not-Dogs, ragdolling their stoopid little asses as if they were under-equipped skirmishers routed by an overwhelming force of armored cavalry. Me and McGruff join the fray, barking up a storm and loving the hell out of it.
Down with the Not-Dogs! Labrador Wayne wins again! Ha HA!
