He'd lagged behind, sniffing a tree trunk, investigating the innards of a shrub.  The sound of rushing feet attracted his attention.

He watched with mild interest as the strange man knocked her down.  Head cocked and tail wagging, he tried to grasp this new game. Until he caught the scent of her fear.

 Instinct launched him across the grass to the struggling bodies.  his teeth grasped the male's arm and pulled.  The man screamed and swung at his head. He didn't back down. Another lunge and deep growl convinced the man to leave.

 "Good Duke!" Mary sobbed into his fur. 


  1. A good friend to have, there!

    1. Glad you stopped by! Wish I'd had the rest of the links up when you were here.

  2. I read the others so I could follow. Very good bonding between beauty and beast. I can't wait to see what the future holds without Master.

  3. I do love the two of them. Good boy, Duke!
