With no warning, the dogs reached a clearing with a body of water unlike anything the wolves had seen before. Smoke rose from the surface of the water, but the fire was yet to be seen.
Instead of backing up, the K-9 Town females continued to go forward. So did the female timber wolves.
What the wolves saw next left them terrified!
Why were the dogs still going forward when they had to see them too?
There were lots of them relaxing, but not in the water. As the K-9 Town females approached, the mountain lions actually greeted them fondly.
Afraid, but determined not to show it, the timber wolves continued to follow the dogs.
The mountain lions leaped directly in front of the wolves, bearing their teeth, and blocking their path.
Even timber wolf leader, Hanna, was so afraid that she slicked back her ears and lowered her belly to the ground in complete submission.
As she and the other wolves cowered in fear, they heard one of the K-9 Town females call out, “Thank you dear friends, we think we’ve gotten our point across.”
The mountain lions backed away, teeth beared and growling just to show the timber wolves that they were lucky the K-9 Town females had called them off.
When Hanna and the others regained their senses, they walked slowly over to the K-9 Town females who had just saved their lives. Under no circumstances would they consider passing the mountain lions without the protection of the dogs.
It was the beautiful poodle Sophie Jean who spoke softly as she could see the timber wolves were still shaken and afraid.
“The mountain lions were once our enemies.” she explained. “We had to show them our strength to gain their respect just as we will show our strength to Shocka Din and the rest of you, though it will take much less effort.”
“But for now,” added Conchita, the perky Chihuahua, “We invite you to join us in the soothing comfort of the hot water.”
“The water here will relax you and put you in mind of a better way to live, instead of the troublesome lives you have chosen,” said Pit Bull Margie.
