Previously: Before the men could react they heard a howl from near the lake.
“AR-ROOOOOO!!! AR-ROOOOOOO!!! AR-ROOOOOOO!!!”
What neither non-sentient dogs nor their humans could detect—was what Daisy was saying. Her friends could, “To Buttons!!! To Buttons!!! FLUTTERS—GET HELP!!!”
Pepper joined Daisy in her efforts, “AR-ROOOOOO!!! AR-ROOOOOOO!!! AR-ROOOOOOO!!!”
This temporarily spooked the men and their dogs.
Regaining their senses, they began to head towards the sound.
Buttons detected this and quickly decided to distract the enemy from intercepting her friends, “ARF-ARF-ARF-ARF!!!”
The humans and their dogs broke into a run—towards Buttons!
Season Ten—Chapter Six—WAANAKI`—Episode 4…
Sometimes Flutters drifts-off into a state of delusion—fortunately, this was one of those times.
“Fortunately?” you ask, GENTLE READER?
Well-YEAH! Y’see—Flutters has a guardian angel, of sorts—although he would never admit it, mostly because when he calls for his “Master,” his call goes somewhere other than the ether.
It goes to none other than the greatest of the great war-eagles: Heammawihio-Wakonda.
You know her as “Karma Big-Feathers.”
Karma had been trying to assist Cujo in her epic battle with that overgrown-sabre toothed bobcat, but had failed to break into that time-space-continuum—because Cujo was far too busy to think about calling for her assistance.
Karma really didn’t want to answer the call from that ‘asinine pigeon’ as she thought of him, but since she could not help Cujo, she had little choice.
A very surprised Flutters found himself flying next to Karma.
The two of them swept down upon the humans and their non-sentient canines.
The humans and their non-sentient canines were never heard from again. Nor was there any evidence left behind.
Heammawihio-Wakonda returned to await Cujo’s call.
Flutters returned to his friends with no memory of Karma’s assistance.
