A/N: Double drabble.
A rare beautiful day during a lull in the Rift provided the ideal opportunity for Jack and Ianto to take Nosy out into the countryside for some exercise in the fresh air. As always, Jack drove them to an area well off the beaten track, away from farms and the more popular beauty spots, where hopefully they wouldn’t run into too many hikers and picnickers. Nosy was, after all, rather difficult to explain.
They had a great time romping about, throwing balls and the Frisbee for Nosy to chase, before settling down to enjoy their picnic lunch. After they finished eating, Jack and Ianto relaxed in the shade of a tree while Nosy explored the undergrowth. It knew to hide and camouflage itself if it heard people coming.
Some time later, Ianto sat up and blinked as Nosy returned, something fluffy trailing along behind it.
“I expect Jack to bring home strays, but now you’re doing it as well?”
The kind-hearted alien hummed agreement.
“Wherever did you find this?” Jack asked, picking up the bedraggled little lost pup and studying it.
“Doesn’t matter where it was found,” Ianto pointed out. “The important thing is to reunite it with its owners.”
