(Forgive the badly written intro. It was all I could come up with!)


Tiburon glanced back at the door to the house where he now lived. Because his 'parents' as he fondly called them were gone out for the time being. This was happening more and more and he just did not like it. Feeling bored and frisky, he began to run around the back yard charging after a half inflated soccer ball that was one of his favorite toys. Eventually, he grew bored of that and so he began to sniff along the walls, casing out the back yard with his tail raised high. The fence shared yards on both sides, but the back wall opened out to a small block that might have served as a shrine or an extra piece of property long ago, but now was given over to tangles of bushes and large patches of over grown grass.

It was here along the back wall that Tiburon found the hole. At one point or another, an animal had made a burrow close to the fence. Over time, the earth had given away to create a large gap between the fence and the ground. It was large enough for him to stick his head through at the very least. Over several days of bored excavation, it soon was big enough for him to squeeze through entirely.

The back lot was wild and untamed, at least to Tiburon's biased eyes and full of scents and sights that he had never before experienced! He ran around with his tail raised high and his ears pricked forwards as he nosily snorted and sniffed his way from one point to another. Inquisitive brown eyes were quick to catch the movements of the local birds as the young kelpie trotted around. He liked going 'walkabout' as his parents said, even more so without the leash constantly keeping him in check all the time.

Eventually, he got bored with running around this 'new and improved' back yard and began to look for a way to leave it as well. Because it was an old chain link fence, it sagged in places and was torn in others, so it did not take long for the intrepid pup to find another gap big enough for him to venture out into the town proper.

Happy as he could be, he trotted along, tail still raised as began to explore the world 'off leash'. His toenails made faint clicking noises on the pavement as he trotted along down the street with his head down. Before long, his pink tongue was lolling out from his mouth, just past his small white canines, making him to any humans that he was passing by as if he was grinning. To other dogs, he looked like a cocky young pup, off to do something naughty.

If anyone was keen to pay attention to him, they might have noticed that his back legs were a little higher at the hips than his shoulders, giving his long lean back a rather mild up slope from shoulders to withers. With his head dropped down however, the sloping was not nearly as noticeable. Still, his walk was stilled, making him appear as if his hind legs did not fully align properly with the front legs.

Aye, aye... A youthful canine was also enjoying a day out in the town, casually weaving between people and structures without much of a destination... well, perhaps without a specific one. Steps still lifted with perky spirits, she had certainly grown a little older. The pup has lost her slight accent, having adopted a more Japanese tone. It was certainly inevitable considering the amount of time she had spent within her new homeland. Bi-colored eyes glanced up at some onlookers. She continuously brandished a goofy smile toward everyone. Bottlebrush tail waved energetically with glee. It was a glorious day!

Dea, as she was called, peered through the forest of legs, watching for perhaps other Dogs who would want to join in the fun. However, all the Pet Dogs remained locked up in their yards and kennels, which was rather disappointing for the collie. It had been some time since she last played with another Dog. Nowadays, she had been hanging out near restaurants, keeping the Humans some company and, if she was lucky, get some table scraps. Despite her seemingly pathetic lifestyle, she enjoyed it. It was an easy, laid-back, independent life. It was not extremely exciting, but it was what she felt like doing.

In midstep, the collie froze. Memories began to trickle into her head as her eyes were locked on to the mountains. The air was very clean and there was not a cloud in the sky. A smile snaked up her white muzzle, her fluffy ears perked forward with attention. In that direction lied Ou. It had been at least a year since she last took a step in that territory. Deep down, her heart will owned by the soldiers' spirits. If she was called upon, she'd be there -- there was no doubt in that.

A slight noise disturbed her nostalgic trance. Her attention was whipped around, settling on this odd little figure prancing around in such a similar fashion to how she did. A playful smirk formed on her maw, her tail wagging in anticipation. A quick snort was emitted from her sinuses before she bounded toward the other canine. "Yo!" she barked as she bounced her way toward the stranger. "How're you doing, stranger?" Her pink tongue hung out of her mouth lazily, her friendly nature apparent on her soft facial expression of... well, of complete relaxation with a hint of play.

Solar was definitely being a Bad Dog again. He didn't intend to be a Bad Dog. He never wanted to be one. It was just that, every once in awhile, he got it into his head that escaping from the fenced in backyard that was his day to day home was a good thing. Such as right now. Up until now, he had been perfectly content to remain in his home with his new friend. But even though that enjoyment had not paled he had still decided that he wanted to explore around the town. There were always such strange things to see.

The shepherd was a very simple creature in his thoughts. He never thought overly much about the dogs that lived without humans. He never thought overly much about other humans. His world was a very narrow one, recently widened a tiny bit but not by much. It was far too easy for him to become confused if he thought too far out of that narrow worldview. So he kept his light green eyes focused straight ahead. One paw in front of the other, dodge the humans, keep walking. No one paid him much mind. In a small village like theirs, the dogs were generally well known and it wasn't uncommon for some of them to roam about. Solar had never before posed a problem for anyone or anything and so he was left to his own devices most of the time whenever he did escape.

It was as he was on his journey to somewhere - somewhere he didn't even know, because he had not picked out a destination in the least - the German shepherd passed by two other canines. For a few steps he continued to go before his brain caught up with what he had seen. Solar was an overly friendly dog and he always enjoyed the prospect of meeting new friends. Sometimes that had gotten him into spots of trouble with dogs that were less than friendly but it never deterred him. He continued to be overly friendly to any and every dog that he ever met. So his paws ceased their forward momentum and he turned around, quickly changing direction so that his path now brought him directly towards the other two canines.

One was another male, smaller and younger than Solar was and the other a female, also smaller. He would have to be careful to make sure he didn't hurt these two if they did, indeed, want to play with him. "Hello, I have never seen you before. I have never seen either of you before. My name is Solar." He proudly proclaimed this, his words tinged with a hint of 'do you want to play? I want to play! Can we please be friends' in his tone, an almost wheedling whine beneath the words that he had spoken. His bushy tail wagged back and forth as he swung his large head from side to side, taking in both of the dogs and their reactions to his words.

Tiburon's sable ears perked up as he spotted Dea. He picked up the playfulness in her tone immediately, which cased his black and tan tail to arch for a moment. He studied her, in genuine curiosity as his chocolate brown eyes surveyed the collie before him. As a pup of only 8 months, he had a hard time figuring out just how he was supposed to behave. He wondered if he should differ to her, or if he should act more dominant, it was clear that she was friendly however, so he would go with that, building up from there.


He grinned at her instantly liking her as he dropped instantly into a deep play bow with his slender tail wagging slowly back and forth and his ears erect and forwards while he focused intently on her.


G'day I'm new here. The name's Tibs. He spoke with a mild accent which gave away, if nothing else that he was definitely not from around here.


So distracted as he was by her, it took him a second to realize that another male had walked up, until Solar spoke. Springing up, he turned to look at Solar as well. His ears pricked forwards as he looked first from the collie to the German Shepherd. So excited to see new dogs, his tail started wagging as his ears flicked back against his skull showing just how relaxed and easy going he was.


Hi Solar! He yipped, his voice was full of unrestrained excitement at meeting two new dogs in the area.

Looking at the both of them, he dropped down into another play bow.


Lets play!


Never mind that his was more or less in the middle in the of the town and that there were people and electric sheep, and all sorts of other stuff around which would make it hard to actually play without risking life and limb or at the very least, the ire of a few humans.

ooc; Sorry for the late reply! I got so caught up in work that it isn't even funny. I'm only staying up tonight because I need to head to work in 5 hours...

"G'day I'm new here. The name's Tibs."

Dea was overly amused by the unrestrained excitement and energy that the small dog radiated! She was smiling with glee as Tibs dropped to the ground in a bow. She was about to respond when a deeper voice seemed to rumble from nearby. "Hello, I have never seen you before. I have never seen either of you before. My name is Solar." Her head spun around so fast that it could have resulted in a broken neck. Whoa, big shepherd! She immediately recognized the breed for they were quite common in some areas of her homeland... not to mention there were a lot around her as well.

"'Ey Tibs and Solar! I'm Dea!" She paused as the shepherd's remark settled. "Interesting. I've been roaming around these parts for over a year and I've never seen you either. Oh well!" Another goofy smile curled itself on her muzzle. Her attention was pulled from the shepherd to acknowledge the new puppy as he dropped to the ground again in a play bow.

This time, Dea would be able to respond. She dropped her chest, spreading her legs widely apart with her bottlebrush tail waving roughly behind her. Her fluffy ears perked forward, her pink tongue hanging off the side of her jaw. Her bi-colored eyes glanced toward the shepherd, and she shifted her body to an angle where she was bowing to both Tibs and Solar. "C'mon Solar! Don't be a stiff! Play with us!" she taunted. She smirked, then turned her head toward Tibs and gave him a challenging bark toward him. Playtime! Playtime! Playtime!

"Oh," was Solar's only initial response to both Tib's comment about being new and Dea's comment about her having been around before. The larger dog swung his head from side to side, tilting it just a tiny bit, as he regarded both of his companions and their response to his words. The younger of the two jumped right into being ready to play, but the female commented on having been around. For a dog like Solar, sometimes the simplest of comments either confused him or set him to wondering. Solar's single, greatest fear in life was being regarded as a Bad Dog. If he had somehow unknowingly snubbed the pretty border collie that was now before him, did that then make him a potential Bad Dog? His expression shifted into one of calculated worry. It didn't last long, though, not with both of his companions eager for the chance to play.

A wiser dog might have mentioned that they were, perhaps, in the worst possible place for a bout of playing, might have suggested that they move to another area; might have even taken both of the smaller dogs back to his fenced in yard and cavorted about until they had worn themselves out. Though the village was small that didn't mean it was deserted. There was plenty of foot traffic about most times of the day and even vehicle traffic. But Solar was not exactly known for his brilliance and all he could think of was the word play.

The light green eyes watched for a brief few seconds, his own fluffy tail wagging back and forth, as both of the smaller dogs engaged in play bows, the preliminaries for what would prove to be a good time. But then Dea turned towards him and included him in the session - not that he had been feeling excluded at all, but this was a direct invitation to get in on everything. With a heavy thud, the larger of the three dogs dropped down in a play bow, his front legs and chest hitting the ground with all the force of the action. Rather than just his tail wagging, now his entire rear end was caught up in the motion as well, his pink tongue lolling out of the side of his mouth; it left him looking entirely thrilled and entirely goofy.

For a few seconds, that pose held as Solar waited intently for one of the other two dogs to break. The excitement of the moment meant that he couldn't wait long, however. The German shepherd let out a deep bark, paws slapping against the ground in his excitement, an enticement to play. Then he pushed himself up from the ground and darted forward with all the subtlety of a freight train. One large paw extended outwards to bat towards Tiburon. "I will tag you and then that will mean you are it. Then we will run and you will chase us." The liver colored dog paused briefly. "Tag is my favorite game. Do you know how to play it?" Perhaps questions he should have asked in order, but that was Solar through and through.
