It’s true she lacked the keen olfactory sense of Daisy, and her auditory sense though far superior to humans was not that of PepperCooper, she had something else; she could sense the location of anything or anyone in raw cyberspace.

Now what?” her tail wagging slowly, Daisy was still not sure how they’d find their people-dogs, but she had faith in her small friend.

The bus began to move in a circle and when Buttons was satisfied where the people-dogs were, the bus began to move in that direction.

    Methinks he thinks thinks FlutterMatters the Master who whilst imbibing certain beverages prone to instill loquaciousness did as he recalls, pontificate on virture as it applies to let’s say – certain female types. “Diction”! – said the Master, sometimes indicates that you can’t take the spots off dogs who want to ride in a bus.
