Once upon a time, not so long ago and not so far away, there was a very happy dog. Every morning he barked for joy, and this bark could be heard all across the land.

All that heard it were inspired to start their day with joy and gratitude. Life was good.

Then, one day, the bark of joy was not heard. All were unsettled. Where did the bark go?

A group of Crusaders banded together to unravel the mystery of the missing bark of joy.

They are aided by a squadron of flying cats.

My rather ambitious intent is to present a whimsical tale, in a semi animated fashion (skills allowing). I am inspired by the style of film director Wes Anderson, with added influence from the Coen brothers.
