Summary

The Talking Dog Club is a group of teenagers who found an ugly dog on the side of the road. The dog had been hit by a car, and spoke to them in a human voice, asking for help. They took it home, hiding it from their parents. The dog, grateful for their assistance and slowly regaining its strength, is sharing its power with them, teaching them spells and secrets.

The Dog

The dog is large, the size of a person, but resembles no known dog breed. Its opposable claws allow it to grasp objects, and its digitigrade legs allow it to stand upright. It is very ugly. When it yawns, its maw opens wide enough to fit your whole head inside. It speaks with a strange tone of voice that often changes, sometimes in many languages besides English. Despite its fur, the dog is cold to the touch. When they found it, the kids thought it was in shock, and tried everything from their health class first aid training to warm it up. It still likes to wrap itself in blankets, or sleep next to human beings for warmth. It also loves meat, and is not particular about the freshness.
