“Drop it!” Dee ordered in his best commanding voice. As a cop, it was a tone he was well used to using, although he was usually facing some kind of criminal wielding a gun or a knife rather than a small brown dog, longer than it was tall.
Dick just gazed curiously up at his temporary master, tail wagging gently, and failed to surrender what he was holding in his mouth.
“I said drop it!” Dee had no idea where the dog had even found his prize. He wasn’t supposed to go in the bedroom; that was why the door was kept closed.
A querulous whine was the only response to the command. Dumb mutt probably thought he’d found a new chew toy.
“What’s going on?” Ryo asked, coming out of the laundry room carrying a basket of freshly washed sheets. Then he caught sight of the dog. “Oh dear.”
“Oh dear? That’s all ya gotta say?” Dee turned his attention to his partner.
“It must’ve been in the bed when I was changing the sheets. Maybe I dropped it on the way to do the laundry.”
Well, that at least explained how the dog had gotten hold of it.
“Okay, makes sense, but how the hell do we get it back off him? He thinks he’s found a new toy!”
“He sort of has, it’s just not one of his.”
Setting the laundry basket down, Ryo went to the kitchen to get a bag of dog treats. Taking one out, he made sure Dick saw it. Floppy ears perked up and the stringy tail wagged harder. Ryo crouched down and held out his hand.
Obediently Dick gave up his prize, accepting the treat in exchange.
Ryo handed Dee the vibrator.
“Better wash it before you put it away!”
