Astro’s Adventures: The Great Escape – A Secret Organization

For many many years the good people of the planet Earth have shared their homes, their backyards and most of their food with one special species: The Dog.

The importance of this symbiotic relationship has been well documented by humans in poems, movies and even on internet sites such as Facebook and Twitter. As many people are becoming wealthier, they have generously given their dogs more care and comfort at unprecedented levels.

For the most part, dogs seem to be on the receiving end taking what is given and doing their part in the areas of home security, general obedience and licking the dishes clean.

However, there is a special organization responsible for the wellbeing of dogs. Its main goal is to make sure that all dogs are provided with a proper home, a nice warm bed and a cat to chase.

This organization is kept secret from every human being and operates, as you are about to see, right under our very noses….

Hi Julie,

Hope you’re ok?

Wanna hear something funny? This is what my silly dog did today.

I took Astro for his doggie massage to heal his leg. In the rain, “Mr. Agile” came bounding up the veranda stairs slipped and stacked full force into the top stair – yep, full force on his sore leg – you know, the one he’d injured on the off-leash walks.

It shames me to admit but I did not play the heroic role. I became hysterical and completely embarrassed poor Astro. He has to stay inside for two weeks – doctor’s orders. I have never seen him so sad; he is not even trying to put Nigel’s head in his mouth!! You remember Nigel, my beautiful snow white cat!

Astro says, “Hi” to your dogs.  He wants me to pass on a message to Spot –

Astro’s words – “Hey Spot, my mum won’t let me out to play. She says that until my leg gets a lot better I am not allowed to run off leash with you and the other dogs. I think she is trying to punish me for eating her book – She claims she is not but it sure feels like I am imprisoned. I haven’t had a walk in over a week! I am a PRISONER!!!!”
