The yelling turned to screaming.
The screaming turned into shouting.
The shouting turned into the thumping of foots.
The humans were somewhere upstairs. You could clearly hear as the dogs quickly ran past or away from the beings. I paced myself upstairs, stopping once or twice to let a dog run downstairs chasing a squeeky ball that fell down the stairs. When I got up there, it was quite a sight to see.
A company of adults were chasing the excited dogs everywhere, and when they caught a scared dog, a few more would sweep the giant off his or her feet and the dog chase would begin again, resulting in more falling and tripping.
I scurried upstairs, the thump of the dogs against their cages echoing down to me. I heard many shouts from them, and they seemed to be wondering why the huge ruckus was all about. I came up to another huge room, this time with rows and rows of huge cages attached to the wall. The dogs whimpered inside. All of them seemed to be very scared. I examined their cages, and there were no levers or things on them, but to my left I saw a box attached to the wall, full of big red buttons. I pressed them all.
The sound of paws tapping the carpet filled the air, and 40-50 more dogs were released from tyranny. The sound seemed to stop though. The sound of panting now filled the air.
“What should we do?” They all shouted.
I thought for a moment. I didn’t know what to order them to do. The goal of saving my brother was still far away, and how would I do that? The sounds downstairs didn’t help, either. But I knew I would save my brother somehow. Time, I thought, time.
“Save the rest of the dogs in the neighbourhood. Meet in the entrance to the forest.”
I started to walk downstairs, then I came up with something.
“And tell them to save who they can. Spread the word.”
