Ubu And The Electric Garden

Ubu And The Electric Garden

One day while playing with his master, "Ubu The Pitbull" ran into the forest to retrieve his ball. As Ubu searched, he came to find his ball at rest in the middle of a strange and glowing, almost electric, garden of mushrooms. Ubu gave a wag of his tail as he rooted around through such an interesting garden! As with most dogs, he couldn't resist chewing on something and in all his excitement one of those strange sponge-like life forms seemed ideal!!
He began munching on one and to his surprise Ubu suddenly transcended into a strange and completely different land-- although, he was still in the garden. Ubu noticed his whole body had been transformed! When he looked up he saw a small humanoid with three eyes welcoming him into the garden. Ubu didn't understand exactly,
"Where am I, and who are you?" he questioned.
The huminoid replied,
"My name is Harmony and you my friend are in the Great Unknown, of course!!"

Together, the two traveled through the cosmos and eventually they came to the Keeper of the Collective Conscience...................

Thanx for looking.
