I thank everyone who has read my saga especially those who have taken the time to post a reply. Your encouragement made writing this saga a pleasure. No, I am not a comedian or a writer, just a housewife/carer but thank you for the compliment. But like a lot of writers, once I started writing this story, the ideas flowed & it wrote itself. If you have an idea you would like me to weave into my story, please PM me or post it here & I will do my best. As I progress through the game. more places & items will be opened for me to add to my tales so I hope to keep us all entertained for quite awhile. ( Aussie sheilas rule! hey aussiegirl!)

When I started this thread I did not do so for the sole purpose of monopolising it. Thank you all for allowing me to introduce my pets but now, I INVITE ANYONE who has a story/ tale/ anecdote/ poem, etc about their pets to please feel free to add it to this thread. The title (Thanks, Aaron!) is PETS GONE WILD so have a ball & write your wacky ideas.

SMILE and the world seems a brighter place. I am just glad I have given you a reason to smile.
Happy gaming everyone, Dorothy/Dot

I've been invited by aussie_Dot to compose a poem in her Pets Gone Wild thread. Here it is:

The pets of Midnight Castle
Are searching high and low,
For treasure chests aplenty,
For silver and the gold.

Some pets have been quite naughty,
with wood or rusty chests.
The Phoenix, Pig and Turtle
Most often bring the best.

Perhaps their names mean something.
The Lemur eats a lot.
Voracious suits him perfectly,
he eats all that you've got.

The cat, although I own two real,
this one isn't funny.
He only brings me rusty chests,
not filled with lots of money.

The Puppy is so very cute,
but I don't use him much.
In order to bring decent chests,
he needs a gentle touch.

Now Panda, and Hopping Tiger
are good when in a pinch.
If you need money, use them honey.
Good chests are a cinch.

Let's hear it for the Pegasus
though she takes lots of food,
She'll bring you gold or silver
when she's in the mood.

O K, let's see which ones remain,
Hedgehog, Manticore, Silly Seal.
They each will do their very best
when you give them a meal.

The Sharp Eyed Snail, without a tail
is jealous of the Dragon.
Owl, Hippo, Squirrel and Parrot,
their chests are a bit laggin.

At last there is the Snow Griffin
who we sometimes forget,
but treat him well, for as you know
He was the very first pet.

"Oh! No! NO! NO! Pup, what have you done?" I had just dug up one of Pup's 'goodies' stashes - to find a leg bone. Uncovering more stashes revealed, arm bones, hands, etc. This haul sent me racing madly around the Castle looking for skeletons that were missing bits. To date: I have returned the Elephant's Bone to the Stone Gargoyle. At the Crypt, I carefully re-attached the finger bones to the Vampire's Palm. In the Throne Room, I did not have to worry about the Dead Ambassador, he still had a death grip on that chest but I had to pick up the Book of Evil (in the Tower) from the floor because Pup had snitched the fingers of the hands holding it on the back of the gargoyle. I gave the skeleton warrior at Ice Rock back his hand & then I went to see The Three Prisoners in the Dungeon. To 2 of them I returned arm bones while to the third I gave several rib bones. He groused that "that puppy could have taken my arm, then I might have escaped these manacles". You just can't please some skeletons! Salty is not at all happy with Pup - the damage to some of Salty's customers has earned Pup a black mark. When I returned the leg bone to the Drunken Skeleton, he said "I wondered why I kept falling over when I stood up!" The gentlemen at the Gaming Table both got their hands back - they checked their cards & went back to doing what they had been doing when I disturbed them - being dead. Currently we are still searching high & low & in the ground for the legs of the skeleton in the Battle Pit as well as the skeleton in the Belfry.
Some days I need Almighty Luck (plus Ever Awake Eyes) to keep up with some of my pets.

Recently I took some of the girls shopping (well window shopping!) in the City Square.
Steffany thought she saw a squirrel in the Antique Shop so she was off to check.
Gabbi Griffin saw some strange-looking animals on top of the Glass Painting so she flew off to investigate.
Petunia Pig & Heather Hippo, liking all things girly, went to look in the Doll Showcase.
I took Perdita Pegasus to meet Christian the Bard. He took one look - another one (male) bites the dust!! He exclaimed that she inspired him to compose a song
"Give me a head with hair.. ...Long, beautiful hair... ..Flowing, gleaming..." . While Perdita gazed enthralled at a singing Christian, I went to check the others.
Steffany was a tad bewildered. There WAS a squirrel in there but it kept disappearing each time there was a "clicking " sound. So Steffany explored the shop. She found a lovely silver chest filled with coins which she bought back to me. I looked at Steffany & said "What else!" She showed me the Golden Flower (bling!). "Put it back, Steffany!" Reluctantly she did. That girl!
Gabbi returned with a wooden chest. I tried to warn her about 'stranger-danger' but to Gabbi, 'a stranger is a friend she had not met yet. Besides a secret agent loves danger!'. I gave up.
That's when I heard the tinkling of glass. Looking over to the Doll Showcase, I saw the front window broken. Just then an officer of the Unified Law arrived & proceeded to question the girls. Amid much eyelash batting & coy smiles, the girls said innocently that it was like that when they found it & that they saw something fleeing over towards the City Clock. Thanking the girls, the officer chased the gargoyles on the roof. Both Petunia & Heather handed me silver chests. "Where?" Giggling they replied "From the Doll Showcase!" Then trotted off home.
Just then Christian finished singing so I went over. For such an appreciative audience, Christian gave Perdita a gold chest.
It was time to go home. As we trudged off wearily, I hoped Christian watched where he put his feet. Perdita still wasn't toilet-trained.

I went to see Anabel at the Castle Gates about an item she was requesting for a quest of hers. Snazzy, Happy & Prickles came along. While I talked to Anabel.......

Snazzy Snail took part in the Broken Well Relay. Being a sprinter, Snazzy was to run the final leg of the relay. All spruced up in her best colours, Snazzy waited to be handed the baton. Then there was a wolf whistle!! Snazzy's eyes went right & then left before she spotted a good-looking male snail, also waiting to be handed a baton. He smiled & winked at Snazzy. She started to preen, completely forgetting about the relay race. When the Baton of Swiftness was handed to her, she dropped it. With a laugh the male snail took off & poor Snazzy was unable to catch him. While the other team got the Winner's Reward, Snazzy's team had to settle for a rusty chest. Currently the other team members are not talking to Snazzy.

Happy & Prickles played 'hide & seek' in the Rock Garden. Much laughter could be heard. Then Happy cut his foot on the Grave Blade. While I was tending to Happy, Prickles went up to Anabel. Blushing furiously, he handed her a gold chest & stammered "Y-Y-You- your Gar-ar- den!" Thanking him for his honesty, Anabel let him keep the gold chest. He was chuffed - his first GOLD chest!

Waving to Anabel, we headed home - me carrying Happy with Snazzy hiding in my pocket & Prickles floating on his euphoric cloud. What a day!

Thank you for the most cheerful start of my day. The window shopping started with a smile, then a laugh, thought it could not get any better or funnier, then you finished with falling off the couch laughing with poor Christian having to watch his step.
You have brought these pets to life, and made them a joy to play with in the Castle.
Thank You.

Yesterday Cuddles Panda went for his regular morning jog around the Castle. Mandy Manticore & Fireball Phoenix went with him. Emerald Dragon was supposed to go with them but she was a little "hungover" from a party she went to the night before. When Cuddles, Mandy & Fireball reached the Castle Entry, they stopped for a 'breather'.

Mandy noticed that the Werewolf (Iron) Knight appeared in distress so she went over & asked what the problem was. "It's this Infernal Armour! My back is itchy & I can't reach it to scratch it." Mandy offered to scratch it for him.

Meanwhile Cuddles & Fireball went over to talk to the Keeper of the Castle. He said how pleased he was that the boys had filled in all the holes that "that dratted puppy had dug around his domain". For services to Midnight Castle, the Keeper gave both of them a gold chest.

Mandy finished scratching the Werewolf Knight's back. He was so grateful that he gave her a silver chest containing 2 unique stamps & some coin. Mandy felt her breath hitch, all she had done was scratch an itch. "Any time!" she said.

The threesome decided not to continue with the jog. Instead they headed for home to show off their surprise treasures.

You may remember that Sebastian Seal was out on bail. Well he has had his day in court. He pleaded guilty to growing a prohibited substance. The Crown of Justice sternly lectured Sebastian & warned him if he came before the court again, he would be handed a Prison Baton, not a suspended sentence. Contrite for all the trouble he had caused, Sebastian has remained close to home. In fact he has been labouring in the backyard - out under the Burning Sun where he has become a regular Solar Seal. Sebastian has been transforming the Overgrown Pond into a Blooming Pond with the help of Pauly Parrot.
"B***** weeds! Bl**** weeds!! Hell. more B***** weeds!!!"
"Pauly!" I called "If you keep swearing, I am going to wash your mouth out with soap!"
"ACK! BUBBLES! ACK! BUBBLES!" Pauly squarked.
Next I could hear "Bubbles, WEEDS!" BUBBLES WEEDS!!" You gotta love them sometimes.
Sebastian has used the Stone of Wild Nature to create a floral haven. Around it he has cultivated the Life Flower, the Midnight Rose & the Sun Rose. He planted bulbs in another area & waits for the Ashen Lily & the Black Lily to grow. Using a Fancy Ornament, Sebastian has made a shady spot to grow the Night Orchid. If the Seed of Life sprouts, he may even get a Lucky Clover. Sebastian is turning out to have a green thumb (Nope! make that flipper!). Sebastian is certainly making amends.

Ahh! Good Intentions! Hope they last a long while.

Dot,
Do you think I could pay Sebastian enough to come help me with my garden? it's fall and I've got switchgrass taking over the wildflowers, lawn grass taking over what's left of the onion bed, and weeds almost the only things blooming in the perennials! My roses are overrun with morning glories, which is pretty but not good for the roses. I desperately need a gardener, and he sounds like he has at least two green thumbs (or do seals have 4 thumbs?). Please, he's worth whatever it takes, even a bloody lotus!

Rose will have to discuss it with him. I know he has big plans for a holiday after he gets the garden ship-shape (or is that pond-shaped?) A bloody lotus is a big inducement though. Will keep you posted.

"Psst!! Have you heard there is an assassin in Town?" I have sent Fireball to investigate & while I wait for him to return I will keep the pets close to the Castle. Had a family outing in the Mystery Chamber recently - Steffany, Bright Eyes, Hooter, Emerald & I.

Hooter headed off to speak to the Wise Owl that lived in the Tree of Knowledge. Hooter had discovered that colour blindness can run in families so he wanted to trace his family tree & needed advice why to start. Wise Owl told him to consult the Horn of Ancestry. They were talking when a furry bundle (make that 2 furry bundles) bounded up the Tree of Knowledge & jumped from branch to branch, then disappeared. "Who Whoo Whoo!" said the Wise Owl. "Oh, it's just Bright eyes & Steffany." replied Hooter. As a parting gift, Wise Owl unearthed a rusty chest & gave it to Hooter. Maybe he is colour blind too!

Steffany & Bright Eyes were having lots of fun scampering around the Chamber. Up & down the Column of the Fallen they went. "Steady!" groused the statue. Over to check out the funny-looking birds. As they neared the Chained Eagles, its legs (or was it?) began to scissor with a clacking sound. Steffany got such a fright, she raced back to the Column of the Fallen, up it she went & hid at the top. It took much coaxing & a gift of a gold chest from the Column of the Fallen to get her to come down. Bright Eyes, on the other hand, was intrigued. She investigated further & found a silver chest.

Emerald was pouting. I had insisted she come with us. It was family time. Emerald preferred party time. Suddenly Emerald belched - a Fireball flew out of her mouth & hit the Heart of the Chamber. It burst into flames. No! No! Oh, dear, no! I thought. The Keeper of Wishes sighed in relief & smiled. "Thank you," she said. "It was getting a little chilly in here but you have ignited the heater so things will warm up now." In appreciation, she gave Emerald a silver chest containing 3 diamonds & some coin.

I thought it prudent we leave before we wore out our welcome - after all we had a rusty chest, 2 silver chests & a gold chest plus a happy Keeper of Wishes. Time to go!
