Abes day went badly. Abe had become more fretful as each day the possessions in the Bearwood house disappeared. Then forcibly bundled into the car. A telling off for Houdini-ing out of her harness. Whinged all the way to Wolverhampton. Then she dived in the fishpond in pursuit of the FishFood.
The large van pulled up and out jumped the Sheff-Dogs, German Shepherd Jaz and cute spaniel Penny. Their humans were discussing how if German Shepherds hear meepy whining, they think its prey.
"Bark me!" exclaimed Java "Jaz has set a removals company up" "And got herself a sidekick" grumbled Lindsay "Whatever you do, don't play Slippy Dog with Jaz, she plays dirty. Lets Hide in this raspberry bush"
"Lindsay!" meeped Abe "Are you going to punch Jaz one" "Errr, maybe, but for now we'll just stay in this bush. Tactics Abe, tactics"
"Ay Up Lindsay!" boomed Jazz " What you doing in that bush, lass. It'll snag your fur. Come here and give us a kiss" "Geroff" squirmed Lindsay then indicated towards Penny "Whats that anyway?"
"Bark only knows, it makes gurgling noises, squeaks and meeps endlessly" replied Jaz "Plays havoc with my instincts"
Overwhelmed by the thought of competing with four dogs for food & fuss, not to mention being thought of as prey, Abe did what any self respecting small dog would do and started a fight with Java. Not the visitors, but Java. One mashed ear later.
A few hours later and the Collective were waving the Sheff-Dogs goodbye.
