Winston sighed, "Relax Kate, it is nothing bad, i would just like to ask आप a favor for Humphrey's sake" Kate perked her ears, "Yes dad, what is it?" Winston spoke softly, "Kate...if आप are going to go off hunting, please don't leave Humphrey with the pups, as he has duties as a Beta and द्वारा doing this आप are waring him out, i found him sleeping beneath a पेड़ while he was supposed to be patrolling the border of the territory for signs of invading packs" Kate sighed, "okay dad...i'll try my best...but where will the pups go if we are both gone?"
