Astro’s Adventures: The Great Escape – The Truth is Out!
Back at headquarters the crack team assembled in the conference room. They awaited the return of Commander Rocky.
The large automatic doors which still had the impression of Alfie’s head set in them opened roughly and Commander Rocky strode into the room. He walked briskly, but seemed to be hiding a limp.
Operative Digger cocked his head and looked at Commander Rocky.
He growled. “Next time I won’t get on the back of a car that is driving nonstop. I was nearly at the state border before I could jump clear.”
“Now,” Commander Rocky bellowed after clearing his throat, “What have you to report, Operative Digger?”
Digger unfolded his legs and shrugged his shoulders, “Nothing really.”
“What?” Commander Rocky grumbled.
“Well, we found no prison and no shackles of which Astro spoke. It seems like a nice home.” Digger shrugged his shoulders again and Indy nodded in agreement.
She continued. “Astro and the cat have separate beds which are inside the house, do you believe? There are numerous different types of dog food in the cupboard. There were at least 12 different squeaky toys lying around the house and backyard. We did notice his leash hanging in the laundry, but it was too hard to tell if it had been there for a long time.”
“Oh, don’t mention that I was attacked by that awful cat!” whined Dingo. “I lost four hairs on my neck thanks to that hideous creature!”
“And the biscuits,” chimed in Alfie, “Oh, you have to tell him about the Happy Snappy Shapes!”
Digger sighed and looked at them both, “Yes, there was a small altercation with the cat, but it was nothing really.”
Dingo slunk back into his chair, crossed his front paws and sulked.
There is no Evidence of Torture
Commander Rocky glanced around the room. “So you found nothing at all? I find this very hard to believe.”
“It is the truth,” said Indy. “The cat even laughed when we told him why we were there. He laughed a lot!”
They ran the video footage that Digger had taken of Astro’s house. It was neat and clean. There were lots of photos in bright frames of Astro and the cat. The photos had been taken at home and also on holidays. There were ones of them on the beach, at the museum and lots of Astro playing at the off leash park with his dog friend, Spot.
It was clear that Astro had a good life, yet for some apparent reason he thought he was being mistreated.
