“Why? To look at what was Alpha-Jack?”
“Cujo and Daisy, I’ve known you for both your entire lives,” Med replied, “Have I ever lied to you?”
“No, you haven’t, People-Dog, Medford,” Cujo replied, speaking for both.
“Then come with us to the courthouse now,” Medford purposely didn’t give a reason.
“You haven’t said why,” Daisy insisted.
“You need to be with your Alpha-Jack, not out here seeking revenge,” Medford replied, “Besides, those you seek are not in Moosehead County.”
“Who do we seek, then,” Cujo asked.
“Aleev, Bambi and Gina,” Jay replied, “We tracked them to St. Paul Union Depot, and that’s where we lost them. We suspect they walked from there. We’ve checked all the close by hotels; none have any record of anyone matching their description seeking rooms.”
“What now?” Daisy asked.
“We have to lay your Alpha-Jack to rest.”
“Please, come with me,” Jay said, “This is not a request, I have Alpha-Jack’s last words, just for you Dog-People and your humans.”
