The sound I'd heard first was Big Guy getting me a luscious orange stick! He leaned over and held it in front of me. With a flick of my feet and a toss of my head, I snatched that carrot from his paw and hopped away with it. Ah Ha! I’d beaten that alien creature to the treat. I was the victor!
As I chewed away at my prize I noticed out of the corner of my eye that the alien jumped from his perch in the bush and headed for the portal. There in the portal stood Big Guy – with another luscious orange stick in his paw. Before my very eyes he leaned down and held out the stick to the alien! AND the alien took it, placed it on the floor in front of him, and STARTED EATING IT!
