Astro’s Adventures: The Great Escape – Saving the Neglected Dogs
Commander Rocky went to stop him, but when the first door flew off its hinges he realized that Astro might be on to something. He scratched at his collar and switched on his microchip.
“Send the troops in, Hans! We’re staging a break out!!”
Back at Control Centre, Hans leapt out of his chair with joy. “Yes Sir!” he cried.
Seconds later, Indy, Digger, Dingo, Sumo and Alfie all received the same command – Massive escape in progress! Run and give help, NOW!!!
Dingo who had been asleep on the receptionist’s lap jumped up and cried. She held him up and started making kissy smoochie noises. “What’s the matter little fella? Are you hungry?”
Dingo looked down and angled his backside into place. He lifted up his tail and spread his legs apart. Then peed all over her keyboard. She screamed and lifted the little dog up and shook him.
“You disgusting little dog!” she screwed up her nose. Dingo shook himself and then let out an ultrasonic squeal and every rat in the area stopped what they were chewing and ran towards the Check Out.
Sumo had been tied up outside the holding cells when he received his microchip signal. He turned and chewed through the rope. He then trotted over to the lunch room where the attendant was snoozing and lay across the doorway. He then promptly fell asleep again.
Digger, Alfie and Indy were already on their way. There was no need to be secretive now. They were urgently needed. All that mattered was freeing the imprisoned dogs.
Astro and Commander Rocky had got all the cages open except one when the others had arrived.
Commander Rocky took control, “Indy, Digger, take these dogs to the tunnel and lead them to freedom. Alfie, you stay here with us. This last cage is particularly difficult to open.”
Digger and Indy led the poor dogs out into the sunlight. It was so bright many of them couldn’t see and had to shield their eyes. They had all been locked up for so long; many couldn’t walk properly and needed assistance.
Digger helped an old dog walk towards the hole slowly. Indy picked up the little pup to stop him chasing his tail and guided another dog with only three legs in the right direction. When they had gotten them safely to the hole Digger and Indy rushed back to get the other dogs.
