Little Yuteng noticed her silence, she added, “Young master, we can get gold. We just have to sell a few items from the warehouse. Otherwise, we won’t be able to get a couple guard dogs.”
Guess that was her only option to get some gold, Cheng Xiao Xiao agreed with Yuteng. She said softly, “Yuteng, sell half of the rice, chickens, and rabbits in our warehouse. We are going to need quite a bit of gold.”
“Okay! I will get right on it!”
In a flash, Yuteng had returned to the dimension. Just a few minutes later, she re-appeared followed by a brown dog and one with black and white spots (dalmatian?) . The two dogs shook their heads and tails at Cheng Xiao Xiao.
Looking at them, Cheng Xiao Xiao asked Yuteng, “They recognize me as their master as well? They will obey me?”
“Yes, young master. They are your pet dogs. They will obey any commands of yours. Same goes for all other animals from the dimension.” Replied Yuteng with a serious nod.
That was the answer that Cheng Xiao Xiao had expected. She smiled quietly and said, “Let’s call it a night. I am going to bed!”
“Young master, didn’t you say you want to clone the pond?” Little Yuteng didn’t forget about her duties.
Cheng Xiao Xiao took a quick look at the empty field in front of the house, “No rush. Let’s wait a few days. It’s not a good thing to create too many over too short of a period of time!”
“Okay, anything you said, young master!” Little Yuteng would never disagree.
After Yuteng returned to the dimension, Cheng Xiao Xiao ordered the two dogs to guard the area around the house. If they discover any strangers, chase them away; if they can’t, then go and notify her. As for other wild animals, just kill them.
The two dogs nodded happily and ran away.
The next day, Cheng Xiao Xiao was woken up by a cacophony of noises. That of her brothers and sister and the dogs barking. She rubbed her head, grab a jacket, got ready and walked outside.
“Big yellow dog, don’t you go, you are mine, get over here!” Zheng Bin shouted at the big yellow dog.
Little Lan Lan was next to him patting the black and white dog. She smiled, “My little white dog is the best. He just stands here and plays with me!”
Zheng Yuan, who was practicing his horse stand squat in the yard, looked at his sibling enviously, but did not move.
“Zheng Bin, Lan Lan, what are you guys doing!” Frowned Cheng Xiao Xiao.
Soon as she showed up, the two dogs saw her and immediately ran toward her. They circled her and wagged their tails and begged for her attention, making the two young kids envious.
“Big sister, they are so obedient to you. They won’t budge when I was calling out to them earlier!” Said little Lan Lan half complaining and half calling them out.
Cheng Xiao Xiao glanced at the dogs, smiled and said, “Don’t worry, they will be obedient to you and listen to your command from now on. But you can’t bully them, doggies bite when they are mad, okay?”
“Okay, big sister!” Little Lan Lan was very happy with the answer.
Cheng Zheng Bin couldn’t help but to chime in, “Big sister, will the big yellow dog listen to me too?”
“Yes, of course he will. From now on the doggies will be obedient to our family, but nobody else!”
“That’s awesome! The doggies will stay and guard the house for us from now on!”
“We will bring the doggies to swim in the river at noon!”
Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled at their words. Mrs. Cheng, who just came out from the kitchen, looked at her daughter’s smiling face and gently called out to her, “Xiao Xiao, come give me a hand!”
