Post passages written by renown animal authors (and a picture of said author! authimal?).

We slepd in whut had wunce bin teh gimnasium. Teh floor waz of varnished wood, with stripes an sircles painted on it, fr teh games that waz 4merly played there; teh hoops fur teh baskitbal nets waz still in place, though teh nets waz gone. Balcony ran aroun teh roum, fur teh spicktators, an i thought i could smell, faintly likes an afterimuj, teh punjent sent of sweat, shot thru with teh sweet taint of chewng gum an perfume frum teh watchin girls, felt-skirted az i knew frum picchurs, latr in miniskirts, then pance, then in one earrins, spiky green-strekked hair. Dances would haz been held there; the music lingurred, palimpists of unherd soun, style upon style, an undercurrint of drums, foarlorn wail, garlands made of tissue-papr flowers, cardboard devils, revolvins ball of mirrors, powdering teh dansers with snow of lite.

A whistling comes across the park. It has happened before but there is nothing to compare it to now.

The other dogs stop their games and run towards the sound. It's a standard evacuation of the park at nightfall, just like any other day. Squirrels sit in trees, thinking they're safe. He eyed a squirrel as he loped along with his playmate. If it were to fall in their midst, that would be a spectacle!

They mill around the owners, picking up scents. It's only a matter of time before the treats are handed out. Each dog has nagging doubts that say "They're out of treats. You won't get one. They'll give the last one to another dog, one that deserves it more."

He jostles for position among English bulldogs, Irish setters and Scotties. There were German shepherds in the days long ago but now they're at war.
