It all started when I ate the dog food. Not deliberately, of course. Mum had had a difficult day with Class 4B and she’d muddled the tin of Pedigree Chum with the steak pie filling. Gran and Kally said the pie was disgusting and refused to eat it. I’m not so fussy. I was wolfing down the last crumb when . . .BANG! BOOM! SCREECH!
Noises outside! Noises everywhere! It was literally the most terrifying thing that had ever happened. Next thing I knew, I was crouching under the dinner table, my heart hammering against my ribs. Truffle was already down there, shaking and panting too. He smelled great though. No wonder! He’d just scoffed a bowlful of steak pie filling. I licked the gravy off his chops. Not something I’d usually do, but it was surprisingly delicious. Even better with a bit of Labrador slobber mixed in.
BANG! BOOM! SCREECH!
Truffle and I howled in terror. ‘What the cat’s bottom is that noise?’ he whimpered.I had no idea. All I knew was that it wasn’t natural, and I didn’t like it. I snuggled up to Kally’s knees. She’d keep me safe. My little sister reached down and patted my head. ‘Don’t worry, Truffle. It’s only fireworks.’
Gran laughed. ‘That can’t be Truffle. He’s just here by my feet.’ Mum looked under the table. ‘Aww!’ she said, in a funny baby voice. ‘Where did you come from then?’
‘It’s me, Anton, of course!’ I barked.
“It’s me, Anton, of course!” I barked

I finally had the courage to lift my head and I saw my little sister snuggled up on the sofa, I went to join her and that was when it clicked… she knew.
My own parents called a dog catcher on me… HOW COULD THEY? Fear! That’s all I felt within me. I didn’t want to leave my own family and house, who would? Turning around, I scampered up the stairs hoping this was just a nightmare, hoping I would wake up and hoping for an escape. Nearing my door, a horrible realisation struck me. How would I open the door with those paws of mine? I couldn’t scratch the door either, they would surely hear me and it doesn’t take a genius to realise that. Small, light and urgent footsteps came bounding up the stairs. I went to hide, with my heart pounding in my chest, but then I realised who it was…
