I saw her last night! And it wasn’t just a dream, it was real!! I was walking with my Alpha Parents, when all of a sudden I caught a glimpse of a pretty young basset hound across the street. I pulled at my leash to get a closer look, and sure enough, it was Cassie! I bounded across the street, dragging Alpha Dad behind me, and ran up to sniff her shiny, brown fur.
“Woof!” I said, Hi, it’s Woody, remember me?
Cassie sniffed me cautiously, and then turned away and proceeded down the street with her Alpha Mom.
“Woof!” I tried again, Wait! Come back! I thought we were friends!
Cassie’s Alpha Mom shot a disgusted look in my direction as my Alpha Dad apologized profusely for my “bad behavior.”
It’s rough being a basset hound. I thought humans were really into the whole “true love at first sight” idea, but I guess they don’t realize that applies to their four-pawed companions.
But this is Sheriff Bluepaw talking, the Assistant Protector of Bagels Everywhere. I don’t give up that easily. I’m going to prove my love to Cassie, and I’m not going to let any two-paw nonsense get in my way.
