Humans, beware! A new monster is in town! It invaded our house and took Tall Man captive. Here is its description:
Its roar is a storm wind caught in a box. It is taller than me or any of the bulldogs and we were not able to stop it. Well, to be honest, we didn’t really try. Tiger is the only one who tried. She bit at it again and again. The monster paid no attention. The rest of us barked though. I thought that was brave of us, but barking only seemed to make the monster angrier. Hey, at least we didn’t run away.
The monster grabbed Tall Man’s hand and pulled him around the room, making its awful whirring scream. It had a long, black tail that got stuck in the wall. It dragged him behind the chairs and the couch, and if anything was on the floor, it sucked it in and ATE IT! Even pieces of food that we had dropped! NO!
Finally, it pulled Tall Man into the room where cars and machines live. We don’t know what happened after that. When it got dark, Tall Man reappeared. He had escaped! We were so happy! There was no sign of the loud sucking monster! He did not say so, but we bulldogs believe that he defeated the monster in battle. He is our hero! Until the next monster shows up. Then he will have to prove himself all over again.
Where are all these monsters coming from? First, giant insects. Now obnoxious, grabby, loud-mouthed monsters with wheels and forked tails. Food stealers. We dropped that food by accident. We were planning to come back for it later. Not fair!
Transcriptionist: Stella, that so-called monster was a new vacuum cleaner.
No, I have seen vacuums before. This was a monster. Just ask Tall Man. It wrestled him.
Transcriptionist: You thought he was a giant insect a few months ago. That wasn’t true either.
You are denying the monster invasion. That means only the bulldogs will be ready when they come in force.
Transcriptionist: Not everything is a monster, Stella.
Wrong! Everything is a monster until proved otherwise. That’s how bulldogs play it safe. Stay alert, humans!
Until next time, this has been
