Dognapping Invaders!

I knew something big was going on last weekend, Miss Penny speaking, and I was right. Susan ignored me for three days, as she packed boxes and the printer buzzed above my bed, not conducive to napping. And then she closed the door and left me, abandoned again. Not long after Susan left, I heard the key in the front door and strange footsteps approach the study. I shivered and quaked, Dognapping invaders! The door opened slowly, my heart is beating out of my chest, I’m terrified. How could Susan leave me? And… there stood my good friend Nancy. My tail did a double-time wag, you see I love Nancy. But, I stopped wagging my tail and held my breath there was a man standing behind Nancy. Is he a friend or is Nancy colluding with him to dognap me? I start the shiver, big time, the more dramatic the better the cuddles and Nancy buys it and picks me up. The guy, Jim, seemed okay, but I was dognapped and taken to a car and whisked away to Nancy’s place. Phew! I’ve been before so I settled on Nancy’s lap and slept. All that tension and stress, I was exhausted.  Susan?
