Better a Dumb Dog or Dead Remoolian? – Blog Shorts – Dog Days of Summer #7

Seven iterations until I find a subject in which I am not familiar. I have not seen Men in Black, but I do recognize the pug that filled the role of Frank. I did a bit of research to learn something about the character so i could take a semi-intelligent stab at it. So, if you find this lacking compared to others, this is why.


Frank waited until he re-entered his kennel before morphing back to his familiar Remoolian form. He asked himself again if being on Earth was worth the shape shifting he had to endure. Being in that confining dog skin every day was certainly a limiting factor, but so was elimination if he stayed or returned to his home planet. He couldn’t help that his natural form was the same as the most intelligent beings on this home planet. His resemblance to the king was uncanny. More than once he had been confused for the monarch. It was Marcus, the king’s brother who had him expelled. Now Marcus’ plan could finally succeed.
