“Whaddaya think, Chief, are we in for it?”
“The ride could get bumpy for a while, but no, it doesn’t look like a big one to me, crewman. This your first voyage?”
“Aye Chief, I was hired to the SV Danger Bay last summer and made a couple of routine trips to Duluth.”
“Take my advice lad, watch and learn from Armstrong, he’s the best helmsman on the lake.”
Ringo, Cujo and Lighting heard the sound of an epic battle just ahead, the growling of a wolf, and the baying and snarling of a beagle. They charged towards the sound; but when they arrived they found…
Season VI, Chapter 1, Episode 18:
My apologies, Gentle Reader, I’m not yet ready to divulge what, exactly Ringo and company found when they arrived. Instead, we’ll go back several minutes…
Daisy was cornered and out of options and she knew this might be the end of her existence as a sentient cyber-critter. She also knew that no matter what, her real world Daisy-self was quite safe and probably taking a nap about now—blissfully unaware of the predicament of her cyber-self.

“My ‘Daisy-sense’ tells me we are.”
“Look ahead, I see movement!” Larry exclaimed.
They saw Ringo and company moving quickly and they changed course to the direction they were moving. There she was and she was fighting with a wolf.

“You know me, dog?”
“I am Akecheta-Apenimon (Fighter-Worthy of Trust) CanineKnight of the Realm in the service of WolvenKing Sakima-Chaska-Heammawihio (King-Eldest Son-Wise One Above) and you must be Buegonguig (Hole-in-the-Sky) youngest son of Ringo WolvenKing. Want to play?”
“You are Daisy?” Hector was appalled with the knowledge he had attacked a Canine-knight and one who is close to his father, “I attacked you, yet you wish to play?”
Ringo, Cujo and Lighting arrived to find Daisy & Hector playing as mere puppy & cub just as Boomer and Larry flew overhead. “My son, we will talk—NOW!”
