Dogwood Bark

Intro to Danger Doggos 101

Recommended Posts

Dogwood Bark

Dogwood was prepared for school.

 

He was going to be a teacher that day, or at least something akin to that. He had a dusty blazer with tweed elbow patches on, a pair of blue jeans, sensible open-toed sandals, and tank top that read Tree Lives Matter on the front of it under the blazer. He was carrying several crudely drawn diagrams of werewolves that were all labeled danger doggos.

 

He entered the school and posted all his research on the board and turned to the classroom and smiled at the students that he saw sitting there waiting for the real class to start, but Dogwood totally thought they were there for him.

 

"Hello class," he began, "I will be your teacher today. You can call me Professor Bark. Today's class is all about a mysterious and misunderstood creature, the danger doggo. Now, you may ask me what a danger doggo is, and I may have an answer, but you need to ask me first, obviously."

Hootie Holliday

Wait, had he said danger doggo? Did she want to know what one of those was? 

 

Hootie glanced around apprehensively, wondering if anyone else wanted to know as well. Maybe everyone else knew? Not everyone all at once now... Slowly raising her hand a bit, fingers barely upright so not to draw as little attention to herself as possible.

 

"W-What's a danger... doggo?" 

 

The boy seemed as though he would know the answer despite hinting that he already had the answer. Besides, only smart people and grown-ups wore blazers and open-toed sandals with pants as far as she knew.

Giles Cassidy

This kid was a certified nut job, not a certified teacher. There was no way Giles would willingly sit around and listen to any sort of lecture, let alone a ridiculous one about 'danger doggos'. There were no such things, unless he didn't know the scientific or magical name of the creature... which was very possible, seeing as not many children aged ten or eleven were highly interested in beasts. Giles was special that way. He stood around the edge of the classroom, rubbing shoulders against his mates Lip and Charlie, his only interest in taunting the kid from afar. 

 

The copper haired boy cupped his hands around his mouth and howled a few times before bursting into a fit of giggles.

Tulip Blossom

Tulip wasn't exactly sure what had possessed any of them to tune into a thing about danger doggos... whatever that was. Her delayed knowledge about the magical world had left her slightly out of the loop especially considering she had actually known someone magical for some part of her existence and had been clueless. So, she wasn't exactly convinced this was legit.

 

Still the blonde couldn't help herself following in Giles lead.

 

"Awooooooooo."

Charlie Wheeler

Charlie didn’t see the point in this, and he was much too distracted with Giles to really pay attention to what was going on. But, when the kid at the front of the class started to talk about how dogs were dangerous, he leaned over to Giles with a pout.

 

”Is this guy serious?“

 

Clearly, Bark boy had never met a dog like Oz. AKA the most talented, nicest, and best boy around. He spluttered our giggles as Tulip and Giles started to howl in response to Professor Bark.

 

”Hey! Bark Bark! You ever actually met a dog?” Charlie didn’t even bother raising his hand, “Or have you just been basing your research on whatever that is on the board?”

 

He gestured to the weird scribbles on the papers at the front of the room before barking  couple more times. At least he could keep Giles happy for a little while.

Dogwood Bark

Everyone was so unprofessional except the kid in the two sizes too big blazer.

 

"Danger doggos," he answered the girl's question ignoring the other students, "are more commonly known as werewolves. There, however, is a common misconception that werewolves are actually humans who can transform into a wolf form. This couldn't be more false than someone saying the sky was green. There is absolutely no way a human could ever become a wolf or a dog. It's implausible. How did the first one happen? Were they born that way? It doesn't make sense. Now, " he said pointing to one of his crudely drawn werewolves.

 

"The problem with danger doggos is the are rarely seen during the day and are a mostly nocturnal animal. People believe that this makes them dangerous and scary, hence the nickname danger doggo, but this isn't the case. These animals are tame, aren't afraid of humans, and in fact they want to play with humans, and be the very best dog that they can be."

 

He walked over to the girl who asked him the question, "Does that answer your question, sufficiently?"

"I like that he calls them Danger Doggos." Griff nodded attempting to find a way out the argument that might end up happening, people were howling and everything. "It makes werewolves sound fluffy and cute." As far as he knew they weren't.

Priscilla Pickles

Priscilla hadn't been paying attention until the howling started. She looked up from her seat and was completely unimpressed by the setup at the front of the class.

 

Danger doggos?

 

She hoped this boy was just joking and didn't actually think that werewolves were just dogs waiting for attention. Priscilla couldn't believe that he was going around and spreading fake news about werewolves. 

 

"This," she gestured to the pictures on the board and the boy himself, "is all wrong."

Hootie Holliday

As soon as the howling and barking started, Hootie jumped. She looked over her shoulder and realized it'd only been a few other students. Their teasing didn't seem to dissuade their current instructor of sorts. Her eyes widened as he went on and on but she wasn't quite sure he actually knew what he was saying. She may not be as magical as the rest of them but she certainly had seen and heard plenty of werewolf stories and movies due to her brothers.

 

"Uhm..." Hootie winced, not wanting to be the one who disagreed with him outright but... "Your drawings are very nice?" that was so not an answer but it was a good distraction, right?

It seemed that Dogwood, having grown up in a shack, had developed various tendencies that caused Dax to stare at in disbelief. What school had he been sent too and how could he leave?

If Saroyan hadn't been elbow deep in his pockets, fishing around for the half-eaten bag of spaghetti he'd stashed within, he might have caught the beginning of what was shaping up to be quite a spectacle instead of catching on when the fire was already hot. There were children-adults, there were howling accompaniments; it was a regular zoo in the classroom, and his interest was peaked. 

 

"Those are nice drawings, mate. Ten out of ten." The rest, he couldn't be sure about. All he had to base his general werewolf knowledge off of was the mask Beckett always wore for Halloween and the old VHS horror films from his granddad. Neither of those really attributed to what the Bark kid was laying down.

 

Inadvertently, he joined in with the howling, purely out of excitement at his success in finally tracking down his spag-bag.
