No? Huh. It's time to do this week's blog, but I haven't seen him yet today.
It's not like him to be late. He's always very punctual. In fact, you might even call him a watchdog.
Heh heh. Get it? "Watch"dog?
**crickets chirping in the silence**
Err...never mind. Sigh...I don't understand. Whenever Droopy does that joke, everybody loves it.
Anyway...maybe Droopy's alarm didn't go off? Or maybe he slept in on purpose? Let's check his bed and see....
Nope, no sign of Droopy. But...there's his boonie hat.
Now I'm actually starting to worry. Droopy's really attached to his hat. He rarely leaves it behind, even on a hot summer day.
And underneath the hat...what's this? It's a note. I don't recognize the handwriting. Let's see what it says...
...Oh my gosh. Oh, no!
PATCH! PATCH, COME HERE QUICK!
Patch came running.
"W-w-what?" he panted. "I heard you shouting, Spunky...what's wrong?"
Read this note!
Patch read the note out loud:
"IF YOU WANT TO SEE DROOPY AGAIN,
BRING 100 BOTTLES OF HONEY
TO THE FISHING PIER
DO NOT BEEEEEE LATE!"
Oh horrors! It's a ransom note! Droopy's been dog-napped!
What are we going to do??...
