Animal. Pet. Dog. Freak.


That’s all I’ll ever be to those outside of Carnaval des Ténèbres.

So I perform for them.
I fetch, roll over, and stay.
I fulfill their demented need to see me as an animal, as something beneath them. But underneath the hair, I’m just a man. A human being with human needs and emotions.

Now I’m trapped in a cage.
He’s taken me away from the only family I’ve ever known and if I ever want to see them again, I need to play the part.

I’ll be his pet.
I’ll play his games.
I’ll be the best damn show dog in the world.
I just pray I still have my humanity when it’s all over.
