???If you are reading this it means that they have done as I asked and made this public.
 
Every day I sit on the pullmans sofa with my front paws on the windowsill, waiting for Auggie to come home ever since he started going to school. Its been two weeks since he and Olivia started kids jail they sometimes tell me. Oh the torture they say, being stuck in there for 6 hours, waking up at 8:00 just waiting for the week to end, so it can start all over again.
The first day of school, wasn't actually school but just to see where their homeroom is and to get to know some people. But what I dont understand is why people call it a homeroom, kids are in there for 1 or 2 classes but its not like they eat, sleep, and live there.
So when the first day of real school began, Olivia came home in a golden mode, Auggie in more of a silvery type.
Now I spring off the sofa and run outside into my dog house. The Pullman's don't know this but I have a tunnel which goes to an abandoned building which used to be a grand hotel, but now its better known as the paws centre. If you ask most dogs they'll say it just for canines. But when it turned into paws in 1994 it was a building meant for all animals, but you dont see any horses and such animals roaming around the city unnoticed. So it became most popular with dogs so only the toughest cats come, from which there are actually many to be. They were originally supposed to tar it down, but thats a whole other story. 
When I get to paws square, I go straight  to the Mints pubs basement where I find Alfroline stacking boxes of dog food, now Alfroline may sound like a cute name, but don't let that fool you. Alfroline is the toughest cat around these parts, thats right I said cat. Most dogs cant even look him in the eyes without getting fear stricken. Funniest thing about it is that he's a small one he is, and most animals dont know how dangerous he can become, he's not physically strong but he's smart probably to smart for his own good. 
As I pace toward him, I snatch a little rectangular box out from my collar, drop it next to him on the ground and scamper away like nothing happened. 
Here's something else the pullmans dont know about me, I'm a PADP agent short for pup and dog protection. I was actually one of the first dogs recruited and helped come up with the name. First we thought of (PISS)  pups in security systems but that just became a mockery. Then we tried (AWS) animals we save, which had two problems 1.We dont save all animals because a) their to heavy or b) we dont get along. And 2. Dogs have a hard time saying the sound W makes.
Just as I run away from Alfroline I hear an explosion go off right on time, I turn around to see the damage my little contraption has done. Not enough I'm afraid, that was supposed to send Alfroline into a coma long enough for the police to find him, because he's not doing all this illegal stuff alone, and his owner has trained him to do his dirty work in return for 1,000$ cat food.
Alfroline's spotted me and is on my tail. I see a duct open and without a second to loses I jump in. I feel like I'm flying down an endless cavern. Turns out it was a garbage shoot, even though Alfroline is small, I am smaller and he cannot fit. Though I can hear him cursing me and just by the tone in his voice he asks for sweet revenge.
Ok so let me rewind a little bit, I wasn't always with the pullmans. Before I was with a man named Ricky who found me on the side of the street with my two brothers and my one sister, of course he could barley help him self. So he took our little family and went to one of the nicest neighbourhoods in our city, going door too door ringing the bell and asking if they want a pup, everyone was very nice and the only reason we got turned away was either because someone had allergies, they already had to many pets, or because they were to busy to take care of a dog.We were done in a mater of fifteen minutes or so and a couple of houses gave 10$ to Ricky. 
I was last and Ricky knew he couldn't take care of me but brought me home with him just the same.
I was with Ricky for three days living off of the money given by those people who took my siblings. Now I'll admit sleeping in the cold and going to sleep hungry wasn't the nicest thing but Ricky was a nice man, meatball looking eyes, and spaghetti coloured hair. On the fourth day with Ricky, he puts me in a stroller the we go down to the subway to go to the other side of town. To get to there were going we have to go though a neighbourhood, and as were walking down the side walk when Ricky spots a guy and runs over to him and says, hey, mister, wanna buy a dog? And the man says sure, how much you want? Ricky says ten bucks, so than the man hands him twenty dollars, and Ricky gives me to the strange man. He must of thought I stank cause he didn't hold me as close as Ricky did. 
He takes me to a place called the vet, where theres a bunch of people dressed in blue holding long silver pointy things which I now know that they're called needles, in which they poked me in various places. Let me tell you they had no mercy, I tried to squeeze out of there grasp but they held me tight, oh the torture the pain! Once we left I prayed that I would never go back there again.
 
Back to present day.
 
 Auggie's been going to school for some time now, and I'm going to go track down Alfroline and his person.
I go to my dog house and down another tunnel that leads to the PADP agency, when I get there constable Simon is waiting for me.
"Follow me." she says, so I follow her to the docks and there is the B13 fastest ship in our grasp. "You know your mission? Daisy?"
"Yes" I say as I get in the B13, then the door closes and my adventure begins.
 
United Kingdom Day One 
 
I follow the address constable Simon gave to me, but when I reach the house it isn't atoll what a was expecting, for I was waiting to come upon an old little shack, but what I've found is a small mansion though when I say small dont think about a big house but of a small building with glass widows at the front and a pool, and it looks like a two story home of a millionaire.
But I know this is the place so I go along the back and theres a hot tube and nothing else, so I decide to check out the tube once more, then I see it, a little leaver a the bottom. So I plunge in and pull it, as soon as I do so all the water moves to the one side of the tube and a square there the leaver is, pops open. 
I hear banging noises coming from inside and I know this is what I've come from. After I call the police and PADP head quarters I go inside the squared tunnel which is just big enough for Alfroline. Sure enough there is Alfroline and his person, David. I take no time to think I jump in action and just as quick as Im in I get nocked out.
I wake up in a small room. 
"Hello Daisy." Says Alfroline."Its so nice of you to come all this way for us to try our new invention." David is sitting in a chair holding a little box and he presses the button, as soon as he does I think I'll blow up but I just feel a pain hit me in the gut.
"It wont kill you quick but slowly will take over your body and reck you." Just then I hear something like a wall fall down  and a bunch of the yells 
"What is this!" Yells David 
"Hey Daisy were here." And before I know it theres a hole in the wall and I'm on my way home.
"Alfroline!" I wake up saying .
"Calm down Daisy he and David have been caught."
 
Five Weeks Later
 
I've been vomiting a lot lately and I do believe I'm at the point of death. So I've set up a couple of cameras and asked the PADP to write and publish this unlit my last breath.
 
Six Weeks Later
 
Auggie and his mom got into a little fight, just after Auggie left the table Daisy starts to whimper. Auggie's mom runs to her phone and calls a taxi to take Daisy and her the the vet. And when Auggie's mom tried to pick Daisy up and she bitt her right on the hand.
 
Five Hours Later
 
The pullmans came home that night crying and without Did aisy. When Auggie asked what happened, his dad said that at the vet Daisy had X-rays and blood tests, when they were done they said that she had a huge mass in the stomach, and was having trouble breathing. They didn't want her to suffer so Nate Auggie's dad picked her up with her legs straight up in the air while the vet put a needle into her leg. After about a minute she died in his arms.
