Arch Club

We weren’t much for building, but some of us tried, learning what we could from the goats and cats over the seasons. The Arch Club had a legacy of dog builders, and they’d built nearly every structure in Barkingburgh.

Arch Club was very goat-like in their approach to baseball. A dog who played for Arch would sacrifice bunt with a runner on first and nobody out, and would never steal a base. It would be considered self-aggrandizing to try. Their pitchers threw strikes and wasted no time. They didn’t take chances and they rarely made errors. They won a lot.

Their fans were the most enthusiastic. They had a team drum line that pounded big bass drums before, during and after games. Win or lose they considered baseball a celebration, staying long after the last out to dance with each other and the other pack.
