The Kingdom of the Gophers

Now that I have finally returned to the Archeology Department after my long sojourn in deep space, I am at last able to return to my primary mission of ferreting out ancient secrets and uncovering hidden civilizations. My first task upon my return is to resume my long-idle quest to find the subterranean kingdom of the gophers, accompanied by my new graduate student assistant, a young tough named, appropriately enough, Mutt.

Using maps obtained from an informant knowledgeable in the ways of gophers, Mutt and I make quick progress, and before long are within reach of our goal. I notice that Mutt seems to regard me with a sense of awe. I am told that he was assigned to my office just after I left in search of the Kong of the Titans; surely he has heard tales of my adventures as he awaited my return. I wonder what he is thinking, to finally be on a mission with me.

Following the directions laid out in our documents, we proceed deeper and deeper into the gopher tunnels; but as we come into site of their vast underground city, Mutt makes a startling observation:

We are quickly surrounded and brought before the meerkat king and queen, where we learn that our maps omitted a crucial detail.

Unfortunately, I have recently learned that I am still wanted in Albuquerque, as the district attorney has decided to charge me as a human in the gold card incident. If we want to reach the kingdom of the gophers, we will have to find a way that does not pass through Albuquerque; or, perhaps, I will need to don an even more impenetrable disguise than usual. But I will find a way; because I am Dennis the Vizsla, and I never give up.

Meanwhile …

  2. If you must come back to Albuquerque, Dennis, call me. We’ll file a waiver of arraignment and go from there. I have great experience representing those who misrepresented ownership of gold cards.
