HOW PAPINA GOT AWAY WITH MURDER

Heavy, black clouds entered Barbara’s apartment and refuse to leave. Strange, unknown sadness is presented everywhere what used to be the happiest apartment in this town. Yes, there’s not much fun here anymore since Papina allegedly murdered and then ate Dodo. Papina is one year old, about nine pounds female Shih tzu dog and Dodo is, eh, Dodo was a beautiful little canary with mostly bright green and yellow feathers. They grew up together like a brother and a sister since the day they were introduced to each other. First Barbara bought Dodo so she can have some company when she comes from work. For reasons known only to him, he refused to leave his cage and play with Barbara. Everything changed when Barb brought home Papina, at that time just a hair ball with a cute smile, a little bit bigger than a tennis ball. Dodo was suddenly flying all over the apartment, riding on Papina’s back, eating with her dog food and sometimes even stealing her food right from her mouth. Papina didn’t mind this at all and on many times just for the fun she chased Dodo around the apartment. They kept the company to each other when Barbara wasn‘t at home, many times destroying valuable things, like her brand new shoes or an expensive crystal vase that Barb got from her mom on her birthday. Yes, those were the happy time. On the fatal night, Barbara and her friend Maggie dressed up like thousands times before to check a new boys in a nearby bar. Papina as always watched the whole procedure of dressing up, putting the make up on, combing the hair and selecting the right shoes. Papina’s beautiful, but very sad eyes were asking, „why Barbara, why are you leaving me again?“
Before they left, I knelt down on the floor, looked straight into Papina’s eyes and said, „see, mom is leaving you again, mom is in a funny mood so she might bring home some new daddy like she did many times before. Mommy doesn’t like you because if she did, she would spend quality time with you!“ Both Barb and Maggie were laughing like crazy because I made sure they could hear everything I said to Papina. „That’s not true my sweetheart“ Barb said, „I love you and I’ll see you soon again.“
I took Papina to my hands and whispered, “you should do something really bad so mom will never leave you alone again“ I would like to mention that I didn’t say, “go and kill Dodo“, but somehow I knew this will be the night of revenge.
When Barb got home at six o’clock in the morning, only Papina strangely welcomed her master laying on her back, wiggling her tail and ready to play. Dodo was nowhere to find. Barb found her behavior a little bit strange but didn’t pay too much attention to her. But when she found three small feathers on the floor, an extensive search was launched to find Dodo. Four minutes later Papina was in a „dog house.“
„First I cried, then I tried to kill that little witch but she hid behind the sofa bed, then I cried again,“ Barb told me when I dropped in for a drink next day.“ Just imagine,“ she continued, “I still had a chance that Dodo just flew away and he will come back or somebody is gong to find him, but one hour ago Papina vomited parts of Dodo on the carpet and when I took her out, I found the rest of him in her s……t!!! We all knew Barb’s apartment was a scene of a grisly murder and her sweet Papina was a culprit.
Barb was obviously traumatized by last night events so I poured one more glass of wine to her. After several glasses of wine we all decided that Papina will stand a speedy trial. I acted as a defense lawyer, Barb represented a prosecution and her ex boyfriend Dave was a judge. Three colorful feathers and what seemed to be a bird’s little leg with ID ring on it, all neatly packed in a plastic bag. Two Dodo’s photos inside his cage completed the whole „picture.“ Prosecution simply stated that Papina is a brutal murderer and have to be sent away for many years. After murdering Dodo, the accused realized the viciousness of her crime and by eating almost all evidence, she unsuccessfully tried Barb to believe that Dodo was unhappy with Barb and flew away. She cunningly planned this murder for a very long time and her reason for murdering Dodo was very simple. Papina was insanely jealous and couldn’t bear that Barb dividend her love equally between both of them. By murdering Dodo she will the only one in the apartment who will be loved and cherished, she will the only one that Barb will pay any attention!! Prosecution asked the judge not to be fooled by Papina’s cute face, after all she is one very sick puppy indeed. After Barb calm down, it was my turn to save Papina’s tail. I logically decided to paint my client in a very different picture. A very sad picture. First I tried to explain to a judge that this theory is completely ridiculous, than I told him that my client, this little cute doggie was extremely upset about her owner leaving her home alone. Not once, not twice but probably hundreds of times!! Yes, my client was obviously very depressed and acted in some unexplained psycho rage, unknown to her race. I suggested my client should get some psychological help. Judge Dave understood and nodded his head, after all he dated Barb for a while and he required a help of a professional psychologist too.
I also noted that my client doesn’t have any criminal record and the most important fact is, that Papina is only one year old and we should treat her as a young offender. „Young offender?“ Barb shouted, „I’II give that little bitch …….,“ She didn’t finis her sentence, her fist that was traveling at the speed of light towards Papina’s nose, stopped just in time dangerously close to my client’s face. Papina even didn’t blink her eyes, she knew Barb was bluffing. I was angry, Barb was crying again and a judge Dave told Barb that he will not tolerate barbaric behavior like this and fined her ten bucks. That meant that only he and nobody else will finish the bottle of vodka in her fridge. Papina somehow knew we talked about her but still managed to lick my hands twice, her private parts once and she even tried to snatch my ham sandwich during the trial. We also nearly had to postpone the trial. After judge Dave learned that Dodo cost two hundred dollars, he almost fainted and call Papina stupid irresponsible rat. I questioned judge’s integrity and asked him to remove himself voluntarily from a comfortable chair he was sitting on. A fist fight and a mistrial was inevitable so Barb stepped in and asked us to finish our jobs, she would like to put this horrible event behind her and start a brand new life as a brand new person. At the end of a trial Papina was asked to speak for herself or hold her peace forever. By wiggling her tail I assumed she was happy with me as a defense lawyer. Needless to say Papina was found guilty of murdering and eating Dodo. She was also found guilty of traumatizing her owner for a very long time. I don’t think she cared a bit anyway. She knew we don’t live in Texas. Seven days on dry food and separate beds during nights was a judge’s verdict we could all live with. Three hours later Papina was eating fried chicken breast from a plate located on a Barb’s lap, so let’s talk about a swift justice for murderers in our society. Except Barb we were all happy. Dave knew he will be comforting Barb all night, I got free drinks and food and Papina knew she got away with a murder. The only question was if Dodo was satisfied while watching a Papina’s trial from the animal’s heaven. I don’t think so. I am sure he is planning some kind of revenge while Papina is still alive. But who knows, after all he is having a great time in the heaven and Papina will rot in the hell forever!!!
