Dog Daze Sunrise
By Karolyn Gray

“John, Aeryn!”

Aeryn slowly opened and eye to peer at who called them. “Not again.” She muttered.

“What's wrong, baby?” John asked, raising his head from his quite comfortable pillow of her shoulder.

“Look.” She nodded.

“Oh, the Big Guy again.”

“John! Come here, now!”

“Oh yeah, like that's really gonna work.” Aeryn snorted in derision.

“Maybe we should go.” John said uncertainly.

“Why? He doesn't own us or anything.” Aeryn replied back. “Besides the last time I went somewhere with him, I came back covered in funny smelling dust that had me sneezing for arns.”

“Yeah, you're right! I came back drenched last time.” John agreed.

“John! John! Come here, now boy!”

“Bite me!” John replied sharply, earning a snicker from his companion.

“You know he won't understand you.” She commented.

“Eh?” John replied, leaning back into her.

“Fine! I'm leaving you both here.”

“Oh good. He's leaving.” Aeryn said, snuggling closer to John.

“Mmm. Good.” John murmured in agreement, nuzzling her ear

“You know, while I am enjoying this I'm kind of bored.” Aeryn admitted after a few minutes.

“Me too. I wonder where Blue is?”

“Probably with the Big Guy.” Aeryn replied.

“Maybe we should find Fluffy and have a bit of fun.” John suggested, raising his head in hopeful expectation that she would agree.

“I know where he is, cowering on his throne, of course. Besides, he's mad at me.” Aeryn replied with a sly grin.

“Why's that?”

“I caught him trying to snurch one of my possessions.”

“Oh. Where is he now?”

“Over there.” Aeryn nodded to fluffy eared and wide-eyed form glaring at them from across the way, a door the only barrier between them.

“Hmm. Too bad. I kind of like chasing the little runt around.” John sighed.

“Me too.”

“Hey, what's that?” John perked up.

A short distance away could be seen a dark uniformed man wearing a strangely familiar helmet and pack slung over his shoulder.

“That looks like Crais.” Aeryn growled n reply.

“I don't like him.” John whimpered in nervousness. “I wish we could get rid of him.”

“Me too, but we didn't do very well against him last time.” Aeryn reminded him.

“Well, I'm tired of being scared of him!”

“Let's get 'im!”

“Ladies first.” John nodded rising with her.

Aeryn let out an impressive battle whoop and charged the startled Crais. John grinned, adding his own bellowing whoops to hers. Crais shrieked and fled the charging pair, flinging his silly looking hat and pouch at them in the vain belief it would slow them down.

Surprisingly it did, more because John and Aeryn were shocked that he ran away than anything else.

“Hm. Well that was no fun. He ran away.” Aeryn sighed in irritation.

“Yeah, I was really looking forward to sinking my teeth into him after all this time.” John agreed.

“Well, come on. I want to take a nap.” Aeryn said, padding her way back to their shaded spot of grass.

“A nap?”

“What? Do you have a problem with that?”

“Only if I can't join you.” John replied with a roguish grin.

Aeryn pretended to pout for a moment before nodding her assent. “If you must.”

Instantly John settled down beside her, Aeryn resting her head on him. “I like this.”

“Me too.” John watched her for a long moment, as her eyes drifted close before lowering his own head. Shortly, both were fast asleep, happily curled around each other.


“Hey, what is with all the noise out there?”

“Oh, John and Aeryn were chasing the postman, Crais.”

“I wonder if they got him?”

“I don't believe so, his hat and pouch are still out there. Why don't you go and retrieve it for him.”

“All right. I'll put Fluffy out as well.”

“No, don't bother. He and Aeryn got into it this morning.”

“They always get into it.”

“Yes, well this time Fluffy tried to steal her bone.”

“What the hell is with that cat trying to steal those dog bones?”
