Despite taking special care to set the controls of the Doghouse of Justice properly this time, I find myself watching helplessly as the years spin backward, ignoring my efforts to manually override them. I have begun to suspect that this Doghouse of Justice, which, as you may recall, I found abandoned on Planet Petco, may in fact be defective. Perhaps that is why it was sitting in the clearance section while Planet Petco was overrun by Kongleks. In any case, I can only hang on for the ride as I am taken through space and time and deposited in the land of mayhem and intrigue known as the Roman Empire.
Unfortunately for me, rather than materializing in, say, one of the famous Roman baths or palaces, the Doghouse of Justice deposits me in the dusty, violent enclosure of a gladiatorial pit, directly between two men locked in mortal combat.
As the crowd boos the interruption, I make a dangerous miscalculation as to what sort of event I have inadvertently stumbled into.
Before I can correct this misunderstanding, I find myself thrust as an unwitting participant into their deadly game.
Instead of being back in my office at the university, I am now locked in a struggle for my very survival, for the entertainment of the bored Roman populace. But I will find a way to prevail and escape — because I am Dennis the Vizsla, and I never give up!
