Dog Aliens 1 Raffle's Name free pdf Wow, my parents' human was taking me somewhere in the car alone, just the two of us! This was the first time that had ever happened. I had been in the car before, to go to the dog park or to the vet, but Mom and Dad had always been along, and my brothers and sisters, before other humans had adopted them. This was going to be a long car trip. I could tell because I smelled food in the bag he had thrown into the back seat. Maybe he would drive us to the woods and then take me for a long walk, and we would explore a wilderness area together! This was odd so late in the day, but hey, if we spent enough time alone together having fun, we might finally bond. I would like that. At least, I thought I would like that. My previous life memories about the dog bond were a bit hazy. I could remember everything I ever knew about mining jex. I could remember several hundred commands that humans had taught me, in my previous lives. I knew that humans could bond with Kaxians (and with Niques, but who cared about them?). Everyone said the dog bond was lovely, something to strive for. I thought probably I had bonded with humans before, but I honestly could not remember for sure, and I could not remember what it was like. I thought it would be nice, though. I looked over at this human who had bonded with my parents, to try and catch some body language that told me what he was thinking, where we were going, or anything interesting at all. He didn't look at me, not even a glance ever, for the two hours we were in the car together. I thought this was strange, but I made excuses for him. This was my first time riding in the front seat, and he was driving, after all. "Maybe he finds driving too engrossing a task and can't take his attention away from driving to look at me. Yeah, that's probably it," I told myself. He switched on the radio and sang along with some nonsensical songs, hitting the steering wheel to the beat of the music and pretty much ignoring me. He answered his phone and chatted about his job with a female. He looked out the window as the sun set, whistling a tune. I told myself, "Just be content that he took you along," and I did my best to look like I was having fun. I looked out the window, too, and watched the desert go by. After ninety minutes or so, he turned, and we were going up a mountain road. My parents' human did drive up into the woods! It seems a long way to any woods, from the deserts of Southern California, but there are huge pine trees a few hours' drive away, up any of the local mountains. It was dark when he stopped the car and set the parking brake, which again, I thought was odd. Humans don't see well in the dark. He put on a coat, put the small bag of food on his back, let me out, and called me to follow him over to where a trail headed off into the woods. How nice! We were going for a walk together! I ran to him quickly, wagging my tail to show him how happy I was to be singled out and taken for a walk, all on our own. I wasn't even on a leash! It was a lovely walk in the woods, even if it was a bit short. We went up a little hill. There were many different types of insects in the nearby bushes, chirping at us. I could smell lizards, snakes, squirrels, and gophers. There were no other humans around, which I figured was why I wasn't on a leash. The puppy that I was (and perhaps the wolf part of me) wanted to chase after a squirrel that ran across the trail. Memories from previous lives told me the human wanted me to stay by his left heel, though, so I did. My parents' human sighed then. This confused me. I was 99% sure he wanted me to walk by his left heel and not chase the squirrel. I was doing what he wanted, so why was he unhappy?
