I could hear the raindrops tapping softly on my window, telling me to get out of bed. I was dreaming about my dog who had wondered off and I was franticly searching for her. I heard her barking and I tried desperately to find the source. It was one of those dreams, that did not really make a lot of sense, as everything kept constantly changing. I had her off her leash, but she was wearing her collar and when I got busy talking to these people, she scattered. I can’t recall what we were talking about, but in my reckoning, it was not about anything important like the recent the Korean rocket test fire, or global warming.
When I did find my dog, she had a cat cornered and I knew that I had to oust her from there, as either one of them could be hurt. Maybe they were just getting acquainted with each other and there was no reason for me to worry, but like the Gothic Greek giant my dog could be fierce at times and the last thing that I wanted was a lawsuit. I noticed that the cat was in an agitated state, as the fence next to it began to vibrate, but then again it was old and full of rust and it looked like somebody had used a broom to prop it up. I was able to grab my dog, put her leash back on and pull her away from the cat, but not before I slipped on the gravel and tore my pants which I was going to wear for the wedding. At least I was not naked in this dream like the last time. I was fully awake now and it was raining cats and dogs out there.
