We are here today in Power Island News, interviewing pet owner, Dr. Vincent, for whatever reason. Tell me Dr. Vincent, your pet show mainly consists of dogs, they must be your favorite. How do you take care of them?
"What are they, humans? They don't deserve care!", scoffed Vincent, "They're not for playing, loving, feeding of edible food! They are strictly for breeding purposes!".
Oh, really. Then how come you own a pet store?
"Hmph, the university doesn't appreciate my vision of puppy farms everywhere. It was great, puppy farms all across the nation, and each house will have a dog slave, and when they don't do what they say, they ship them to me and we make dog meat out of them", rambled Vincent, "They called me crazy and called the security on me. So, I'm stuck with this pet store, watching over these furry demons, and them getting the 'love' and 'caring', when they're not even in our species!".
After that, we called him crazy and called the security on him. This is, Power Island News.
"Wow, what a spoiled turnip!", shouted Poor Man, "But whatever, let's go Chomper!".
Poor Man called his dog, Chomper, and the two ran out of the house, with Mele stuck there. Poor Man took his dog to the dog park, and threw a ball. "Go, get it boy!".
Chomper looked at the bar go far away, and sat there. "C'mon boy, fetch it".
Chomper had a confused look. "You go over there, and give the ball back to me".
Then, Chomper got the message and ran after the ball. "Reminds me of myself".
Poor Man sat on the bench waiting for his dog to return, but he didn't. Minutes passed, then hours, then soon, it was night time. "Oh my, something must've happened, I better look for him!".
Poor Man ran across the city shouting for his dog, but nothing. "Strange, the dogs usually always bark during the night. And Chomper always comes back to me".
Poor Man looked all over town, then thought maybe Chomper went home, so he got there, but Chomper was no where to be seen. "Oh great, now I'm all alone!", cried Poor Man.
Mele gave Poor Man a look of disappointment, and walked along. "Maybe he'll come back in the morning, I have to go to sleep", he muttered.
It's morning, and Poor Man is sad to not see Chomper in the house. He decided to eat breakfast and go out. He made homemade waffles and got a glass of milk. He sipped it, but spit it right out when he saw what was on the carton.
Missing: ALL THE DOGS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
If you happen to see ALL THE DOGS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD! Call 111- IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD! - 7901
Buy more milk!
"All the dogs have been abducted! Ok, if I find them I find Chomper, but who would... of course!".
Poor Man marched over to town and beat the door of the Pet Store. "OPEN UP VINCENT!", shouted Poor Man.
But someone poked him in the back. Poor Man looked behind him, and saw Dr. Vincent with the keys. "Dude, I haven't opened the store yet. Eight o'clock".
"Sorry", mumbled Poor Man, "You despicable he-witch! You kidnapped all these puppies for your puppy farms didn't you!".
"They're called dogs, and why do you care. It's not like they're your children or anything, they're animals. They exist only to sleep, eat, poop, and take up space!".
"Where did you hide them! I'll save them from your evil doings!".
"Whoa, evil!", denied Vincent, "I'm just making use of the useless. If they're going to be a part of our world, they need to be in our benefit. And feel free to join them, pet!".
Poor Man got as angry as a Poor Man can get. "WHERE ARE THEY!".
"Whoa, I did not steal. I am a sophisticated man, not a thief. Now, go and bother someone else".
"Dad, what did I miss?".
Vincent looked down to see his son. "Oh, Tommy, not now. Daddy's yelling at a man with big boy language".
"Daddy, where are all the puppies?".
"Don't worry about them son. They're useless to you. And for you, step out of my way, and keep your nose out of people's business. I'm going to stomp on anybody and anything to get to where I need to be, and you're no obstacle!".
Poor Man stormed off and into his house to call the police. "Officer Ding!".
"And Officer Dong!".
"Reporting for duty!", changed the two twin officers, "Heh heh, we said duty".
"Good, I got all the proof I need. Vincent is the puppy thief, go arrest him, maybe give him a beating or two, and rescue my Chomper!".
"Ok sir, don't worry, we'll find the culprit for you, you stay calm and we'll be on the case!", said Officer Ding.
"But, I already told you who it is, it's Dr. vincent. Pet Shop owner!".
"Yes, I'm sure Vincent is heartbroken, we should stop by and give him a flower", replied Officer Dong.
"We must go to the market!".
"No, you must arrest the guy and save the dogs!".
"Stay put man, we are professionals!", exclaimed Officer Ding.
"Yes, leave it to the clever detectives Citizen Kane!", replied Officer Dong, "To the market! Oh, Ding, by the way, have you heard the puppies have gone missing?".
"Yes, they should call someone about that".
Then the two got in the police car and drove off. "Wait!", shouted Poor Man, "Ugh, the market is this way, never mind! If they won't rescue the puppies, then I will!".
It was night time, and Poor Man was raiding his closet. "Ok, I need my night gear, my regular blue shirt kaki pants outfit is too bright for night time, and ah ha. What about a blue shirt and kaki pants! Genius!".
Poor Man changed to his, well, 'night outfit' and snuck out through the window for some reason. He reached the pet store when suddenly he saw to shadows creeping though the back. So, Poor Man leaped inside a trash can. The two shadows were Kid and Tommy. "Thanks for coming Kid, no one else was willing to come and play with me".
"It's 'hang out', not 'play', and you're very welcome", replied Kid, "Now, you promised me ten bucks".
"Of course", mumbled Tommy as he gave him the money, "Thanks Kid. You know, some other day, do you want to come for real or...".
"I am now and officially zoning you out of my life", interrupted Kid, "You are dead to me!".
Tommy sighed as he sat down by the trash can, then Poor Man popped out of the trash can. "A waffle was in there? Why would anyone throw that away?", he asked himself, "Hey, you, I got some questions to ask you and...".
Tommy then pulled out pepper spray and sprayed Poor Man right in the face. "OW!", shouted Poor Man, "My god! What was that for!?".
"Daddy gave it to me", explained Tommy, "He said to use it when a crazy person talks to me".
He then sprayed Poor Man again and ran for it. Poor Man rubbed his eyes and caught up to Tommy, tackling him and dragging him to an empty lot. "Let go of me! Police! Police!".
"Ok, talk, what is your dad planning on doing to those puppies, and where are they?".
"I don't know what you're talking about!", answered Tommy, "Daddy hates animals! That's why he never lets me have a pet. One time I bought in a kitten, and he threw it in a river!".
"Well, that's dark", mumbled Poor Man, "But would you say he's willing to put up with a bunch of them for one night so he can get rid of them all?".
"I don't know, maybe he would", replied Tommy, "But I can honestly say that I haven't seen him with a single dog".
"Well, thanks for the use kid", mumbled Poor Man, "Oh, and can I see that pepper spray?".
Tommy handed Poor Man the pepper spray, then he sprayed the kid right in the face. "Ha! A taste of your own medicine!".
Poor Man then busted through the windows and looked around the shop. "Strange, you would think that if he hid all the puppies here, then he would have a security system or something".
Poor Man looked around the pet store, but didn't see any clues. But he noticed that all the puppies for sale in the shop were missing too. "Chomper!", called Poor Man, "Here boy! I got a cookie!".
Poor Man then heard a faint barking. "Don't worry, I'll follow you boy!", shouted Poor Man.
He followed Chomper's barking and lead it to a wall. "It must be inside the wall! I'll dig through it!".
Poor Man then grabbed a small, kiddy shovel that's laying on the floor and started scratching the wall paper. "Boy, this is some thick wall paper!".
Suddenly, the shovel stopped at a lump behind the paper. He scratched it out to find a door knob. "Bingo!", cheered Poor Man.
He then heard another dog barking. "No not you!", shouted Poor Man.
He opened the door and his suspicions were correct, there's a huge model rocket underground, and all the puppies were inside it, but no one was around. "Interestign, it's like a huge version of a toy water rocket you would find in a toy store", noted Poor Man, "Don't' worry, I'll free you puppies!".
Poor Man ran towards the rocket door, but before he could open it, he heard a whistle that hurt his ears. Poor Man, all dizzy, fell to the ground. "Ow, what was that!?".
Poor Man looked up, only to find Tommy. "Idiot whistle, Kid gave it to me when he built this giant model rocket for me".
"Tommy! You're the puppy thief!", shouted Poor Man, "Wow, I was way off".
"Clever to think it was my father's hatred for dogs that would drive him to such a crime, but it wasn't him, yet", explained Tommy, "Every night, my father talks about how he's going to steal and torture the dogs and sell them for slaves. I knew someday he was going to go through with this, so I decided I need to sacrifice my love for dogs and send them all the way to the moon, where they would be safe from daddy!".
"Ok, but how did you build this room?".
"It was already a big basement, it just needed a new coat of paint", said Tommy, "So, I hired Kid to build the rocket for me, and in return I give him ten bucks. Of course, as kids, we couldn't install a security system, they wouldn't take us seriously".
"Wait a minute, how do you think the dogs would breathe up in the moon?".
"I, uh, er, um", stuttered Tommy, "We... got to get them out of there before the rocket launches!".
The super computer then announced, "Five minutes till launch".
Just then the two heard clapping. They looked behind them to see Vincent. "Wow, I came back to get my house keys and I found an open basement with a giant rocket".
"Did you hear...".
"I heard everything son, and I'm very disappointed in you, wasting such a life on these pathetic creatures", exclaimed Vincent, "I do not think of you as my son anymore, and for you. I can't go anywhere without you bugging me!".
"Yea yea, help me release these dogs!".
"No, you know what. He already did my plan, he gathered all these dogs in one place, and now I can get rid of them. The puppy farm is much better, but a chance like this doesn't come everyday, does it?".
"Forget it, you are going to let these puppies go you evil doer!", nagged Poor Man, "And I'm going to call the police, and press charges, and...".
As Poor Man rambled on, Vincent opened the rocket door, pushed Poor Man inside and closed the door. "Hey, you let go of me right... gah! Great, just great! Bingo!", shouted Poor Man.
"Say goodbye to your 'precious companions' puppy lovers, humanity shall overcome their need for such useless creatures and truly value the position as rulers of the earth!".
All hope seems lost, the rocket is about to launch in two minutes, and the roof lifted up so the rocket can fly. "Dad! You can't do this! This is evil!", warned Tommy, "And the rocket is overheating. It's going to explode mid-air!".
"Shut up! I'm not you dad!", shouted Vincent, "I never was!".
"Just because you adopted me doesn't mean you can treat me like this!", shouted Tommy.
"I only adopted you so you can pass on my ideals of no animals! And you failed me!".
"Wow, this is awkward", mumbled Poor Man.
Just then, a shed of light appeared. Mele, who followed Poor Man here, came and opened the control panels, cutting all of the wires with her teeth. "Mele!", cheered Poor Man.
1 minute till launch! "That rodent isn't interfering!", shouted Vincent as he drew a sword and started swinging it, "I'm going to chop this filthy rat into...".
Just then Tommy pulled out his pepper spray and sprayed Vincent in the face, knocking him towards the rocket. Then, Mele used the wires to tie Vincent to the rocket. "No! You can't do this!", shouted Vincent.
"We got seconds left! How are you going to save us!?", asked Poor Man.
Mele then, simply, opened the door. "Oh, why haven't I done that?", asked Poor Man, "RUN PUPPIES!".
Poor Man got out of the rocket, and all the dogs ran towards their freedom, and just in time to. As soon as the last puppy jumped out, the rocket launched to the sky. "THIS ISN'T OVER! I WILL GET RID OF THESE VERMIN!", shouted Vincent, right before the rocket blew up and gave the whole town a beautiful fireworks display.
"I'm sorry to cause all this trouble", moped Tommy, "I have to leave now".
"What? Why?", asked Poor Man.
"I need to start a new life, and find new parents. Parents who really love me. Thank you for showing me reality".
Tommy then walked away. Chomper then greeted Poor Man with a nice, wet lick. "Chomper! You're safe! And Mele, you saved us!".
Mele then bowed. "Come here you two!", cheered Poor Man as he hugged his pets, "I wonder what the news report for this is...".
Poor Man, Mele, and Chomper then walked home, with all of the dogs. He may not be very smart, but lucky for him, he has pets who are.
Vincent, in a ball of fire, landed in the ocean. He then drifted into a deserted island. He coughed, and asked himself, "Where am I?".
Just then, from the bushes, came a bunch of dogs, who greeted Vincent with a lick. "Ew! Get away from he you vermin!".
The puppies didn't like that! So, because they're head of the island, they put Vincent on a leash, and walked him a round the island, feeding him dog food and giving him baths. Looks like Vincent got a loving owner after all. And this makes you ask, who really is the real animal?
