Having been more or less abducted by the mysterious Doctor, I have now traveled with him to the far-off Planet Petco, where I have been assured that we will receive a hero’s greeting, not to mention any number of free stuffies. But when we exit the TARDIS, our welcome is not as the Doctor predicted. Not in the slightest.
As soon as we step outside the Doctor’s spacecraft, we are confronted by a small army of bizarre, hostile, and heavily armed robots, obviously bent on our extermination.
It seems that we are doomed, but then the Doctor suddenly demonstrates a knack for quick thinking under pressure, and creates a diversion that gives us time to flee.
Their distraction is short-lived, but it gives us time to flee to the other side of the building, with the robots trundling along after us.
The Doctor and I manage to slip unnoticed to the entrance of the Petco Palace, only to find that the Kongleks have sabotaged the doors’ machinery so that we cannot open them. With only seconds before they spot us, the Doctor comes through again, producing a strange tool that, when aimed at the doors, miraculously causes them to open.
Once inside, I find a veritable wonderland of toys, treats, and stuffies, just as the Doctor promised. But the Kongleks have picked up our trail and are fanning out across the store to find us!
I quickly follow the Doctor’s voice to his hiding place in one of the doghouses. But is it really just a doghouse?
Yes, this doghouse seems very familiar … very familiar indeed … but I have no time to think about that now, the Kongleks are closing in. I quickly join the Doctor inside; and there we wait. Will the Kongleks find us? Will they give up the search? I have a bad feeling they will not; for I fear that they never give up.
But I am Dennis the Vizsla, and I never give up, either.
