Dante Adventure – Critter-Sitter

There was a knock at the door. It was the neighbor. He was sure nice, but very short and very quick about whatever it was he told Gracie. In fact, he didn’t even have time to converse with Skipper and me. Oh well, he’s not really that fun anyway. However, the parcel that he left […]

Dante Adventure – Tricks and Treats

Gracie had our unbroken attention. I know not what else was going on around us. All I knew was that Gracie had treats in her pocket. Lots of treats. And the dispensing was only according to our attention to the details. It had been a while since we’d done this. Skipper vaguely remembered at first, […]

Dante Adventure – Space

It was hot in here. We don’t know what happened, but the heat was on, and we were trying to stay cool about it. And that was getting harder with Skipper panting in my face constantly. I think he does that on purpose. Luckily, Gracie had set up some things for us to help out. […]

Dante Adventure – Tattle Tails

I watched my furry little friend sitting so impatiently in the corner. It’s all fun and games until someone gets into trouble, and Skipper was the one to get it. And boy, he’s got it bad. We’d both been warned not to do the thing we did, and you figure that after the whole spaghetti […]

Dante Adventure – Fireworks

We followed Gracie into the crowd, being sure to stick close so she didn’t wander off on us or anything. It wasn’t exactly the most tail-friendly location, but the scent of snacks was in the air and we were powerless to fight the urge to seek it out. Skipper stopped for a moment to scratch […]

Dante Adventure – Taunted

I didn’t know what to do. It was all so dark now, only the smell of leftovers clung to my whiskers. It was a terrible thing to happen to any dog, especially me. It sort of is my fault, but I’d really like to blame someone else right now. More than that though, I’d like […]

Dante Adventure – Had It Coming

Skipper tore the pillow apart, throwing fluff everywhere. From one end of the room to the other, he made sure that every bit of fuzzy was tossed out and scattered. There was barely a clean spot on the floor to sit. I’d already told him three times earlier, but he wouldn’t listen. I had no […]

Dante Adventure – The Catch

Skipper and I ran. We were just running. In a circle. I guess it just worked out that way. We happened to be on a nice street corner where there were some other people and a big tree and plenty of obstacles. All of them came in useful. Running away from the man that had […]

Dante Adventure – The Search

I looked around, Skipper ran a lap around the tree next to us, and the cat was long gone across the rooftops. We had lost Gracie somewhere along the way, and we had no idea where she was. “We have to find her, she might be getting into trouble!” Skipper ruffed. “Which way should we […]

Dante Adventure – The Escape

There was a cat in the bushes. Usually there isn’t a cat in the bushes, but today there was. I don’t think Gracie had noticed, but Skipper and I had. Our usual walking spot had been infiltrated in a feline manner, and I sent out the silent alert. Soon enough, Skipper was on target as […]
