City
Millennia have passed since humankind abandoned the city - first for the countryside, then for the stars, and ultimately for oblivion - leaving their loyal animal companions on Earth. Granted the power of speech centuries earlier by Bruce Webster, the intelligent, pacifist dogs are the last keepers of human history, raising their pups with bedtime stories of the lost 'websters' who gave them so much but will never return. But they now face serious threats, from perhaps the most dangerous of all beings: the reawakened remnants of a warlike race called 'Man'.
