It was a beautiful day out at sea, when the sun was shining, the tide was low, the seagulls were happy and the breeze was cool. Barker Mc Owens, a Scottie dog from Scotland, was wearing his scarf in the family plaid (dark blue and bright red) and enjoying the breeze. The boat came to a stop in the harbor in New Orleans. Barker Mc Owens and his owner Delia Mc Owens brought their suitcases off the boat and went to buy a new house.
After the new house was bought, Delia Mc Owens gave Barker Mc Owens permission to play outside but come back at 2:00 with no diseases, sicknesses, or injuries.
While Barker Mc Owens was outside, he met a Dalmatian in a red baseball cap. "Hi. I'm Woofley Blaze the stray.," said Woofley Blaze. "Ah. I see you have kept your dog family name. I am Barker Mc Owens. I have an owner named Delia Mc Owens.," said Barker Mc Owens. "So....uh.....there is this really pesky gang of dogs called The Ruff Strays on my tail because I came into their hangout (the dumpster) to get a ham from their food stash. Can you help me outsmart them?," said Woofley Blaze. "Of course.," said Barker Mc Owens.
"There he is! Let's get him, boys!," said Growler, leader of The Ruff Strays. He was wearing a silver chain with a red bottle cap dangling from it as a necklace and was a Border Collie. Growler and his assistants (Bones, Gruff, and Paws) chased Woofley Blaze and Barker Mc Owens. Bones was a bulldog and wore a keychain bracelet with a key dangling from it. Gruff was a German Shepard and wore a tomato soup can for a hat that was taped to his head. Paws was a Miniature Pinscher who wore a banana peel on his head.
Woofley Blaze and Barker Mc Owens hid under a hot dog cart. But Gruff caught their scent. So, they hid in with the watermelons at the farmer's market. The Ruff Strays did not mistake them for who they were. So, they hid in the t-shirt of a waiter at The Lobster Lounge. Bones was the first to see doglike lumps in the man's shirt.
So, they restored to the last trick: "Hey look! A bunch of cats guarding the butcher shop!," said Barker Mc Owens. The Ruff Mutts fell for the trick and ran away.
