Hello my name is Teddy (a.k.a. Streak of Red) and I am a Ship Dog not a S K C (Sol Kennel Club) sanctioned breed yet but one day perhaps in the future. Technically I am a Texas Chihuahua but I was born in the gravity section of a space station in orbit of the planet Earth which makes me (in principle) a Ship Dog. My master's name is Jim Roberts the owner/operator of the earth spaceship Wanderlust, basically a very long haul trucker. He delivers cargo to various settlements and colonies in human space. We have been together for almost 3 years now, for the most part he is a very good master. Sometimes is he a bit slow on the uptake but you have to make considerations for their species. It's a known fact that they would still be banging on rocks in caves if we hadn't intervened, cleaning up their leftovers which help prevent diseases from spreading, guarding and protecting them and saying to the poor dense things (come on master let's go for a walk and see what's out there). It's also a known fact that my kind were the first ones in space. Now they're out here too, with a vengeance. Going here and there and everywhere and of course taking us dogs along with them, as pets and companions, yeah right! On this particular trip, my master and I are taking vital machine parts to the new settlement on the metal rich world of Green Nevada. A dismal and smelly place which makes my body feel too heavy when were on planet. But Jimmy boy has a contract to fulfill and so I must endure as my species has always done. This trip to Green Nevada we are taking a different route than the two previous times we had been there. Only engaging the interdimensional drive engine, three times instead of four. The route is shorter but it's also a new and unexplored area of the cosmos. What we blunder into when the dimensional drive is turned off and we reenter normal space is both frightening and awe inspiring to my master and will rock humanity to its very core, it's a good thing I'm along to help keep him grounded, otherwise who knows what would've happened...
