Ruff. The word used to mean nothing to me, but now it fills me with terror. First, my hands get all itchy, then my nose starts getting longer, I sink to all fours, and before you know it, I’ve transformed into a dog. This is the story of how I got this unusual power.

It was 2:00 am, and a whirring noise woke me up. Quietly I got out of bed. Opening the door, I received a shock. My dog was standing on two legs and holding some sort of walk-man. He pushed a button, and nothing happened. I thought he turned it off. But I was wrong. Dead wrong.

Moments later, I felt a dizzying sensation as I was lifted off the floor. The next thing I knew, I was lying in bed. Thinking it was a bad dream, I slowly dressed myself for school, but my dog said the sound that rattled my bones to the core. ”Ruff!”

I thought it was a dream so I said "Hi", but instead it came out as “Gri!”

“Huh?” I thought. I tried speaking again but all that came out were growls! My hands started getting itchy, my nose got longer, I dropped to all fours and before I knew what happened, I transformed into a dog!

“Uh oh!” I thought. “How am I supposed to show up for school?”. Then I realized something. Dogs don’t go to school! Before I could take another step, my dog talked. That’s right, he talked.

“Stop”. I turned around and saw my dog.

“What do you want?”

“To tell you that you need to get out of here.”

“What for?”

“The dog armada is going to destroy earth.” I wouldn’t have believed him or much more heard him, if what happened last night ever happened, so I just went with him, earth was destroyed and now I’m living on kibble 9 where I’m still trying to recreate the human race, but that isn’t working out to well for me. From the boy who is single handedly trying to rebuild earth.

P.S: Kibble 9 isn’t that bad. They have human food, but the drinking water stinks.
