What happens when a smoke grenade unexpectedly sets off the fire alarm during the public demonstration at the Seattle Police Department’s Mounted Unit barn?
Tiger’s not happy.
He’d done really well, for the new kid in the barn, up until that point. But now his patience had worn thin; the smoke was acrid and everywhere, the sound was deafening and his senses were overwhelmed.
Earlier in the demonstration, he stood still while bands of pretend protesters holding big signs pushed against him then lobbed tennis balls at him. He calmly walked around something on fire and through dense smoke. But the wail of that alarm was not something he’d heard before and the rapid-blinking light was a little too close to crazy-makin’.
But he didn’t move. He didn’t bolt, rear, kick or evacuate the building.
Tiger earned his stripes.
