Previously [From 12/27]:
Ringo was happy to see Daisy, his first ‘Canine-Knight-of-the-Realm after her battle with Renegade the Wolf. He addressed her with her Spirit Name, “You are recovering Akecheta-Apenimon?”
“I feel much better, Sakima-Chaska-Heammawihio,” Daisy replied, “But, I think I am in a little trouble.”
“You and your friends will accompany me—now!”
The dogs were “in trouble,” yes they were.
Season VI, Chapter 8, Episode 36 Dog Adventure 1:
Ringo led them silently deep into the forest at a fast trot—fast for little Buttons at least, who never complained and if you ask me, she kept up better than most any other dog of her size.
They were soon far from the lake, and far from any part of the forest with which they were familiar. The deeper they went the deeper in trouble they knew they were.
Daisy blamed herself for the fix in which they found themselves. It was she who in a foolish act of bravado stood next to logger Arthur French in a gunfight—she was unarmed—all she could do was bay, snarl and snap her jaws at the westerners; she didn’t realize that by doing so, she made them hesitate in drawing their guns and only two of their number managed to get a shot off before falling to the withering rifle fire from the loggers & fishermen. She saved human lives.
Ringo knew this and was quite proud of his first Canine-Knight-of-the-Realm…but letting all the canines think they were “in trouble,” would make them more receptive to instruction.
It was time to take these plucky canines to the next level—to be the leaders & trainers of both wolf & canine knights.
Ringo needed to expand their number as it had become clear to him that a great war was coming to his 2012 forest and forces much larger than his own were gathering to the north under the control of his brother Renegade and the Great White Wolf: “Snowstorm.” Beautiful & wicked, she had long desired to defeat Ringo and his valiant WolvenKnights, but she had not the forces—but now she’d found a way to control non-sentient wolves and was calling them to assemble.
It was only a matter of time…
