History

Dovepaw hears the dogs and tells Lionblaze. He asks if they are in the forest and Dovepaw replies they are in WindClan. Lionblaze isn't concerned as Twolegs usually use dogs with sheep there. Dovepaw urgently explains they are not chasing sheep, but cats. Lionblaze insists they will be fine but Dovepaw senses one of the dogs catch up to Sedgewhisker and bite her. She then senses WindClan cats attack the dog. Lionblaze doesn't believe they need to see Sedgewhisker as she is safe, but Dovepaw goes to WindClan camp to see her.

Dovepaw feels angry and sad, blaming her powers for her sensing the dog attack Sedgewhisker.

Back at ThunderClan camp, Dovepaw confesses to Firestar that she heard a dog on WindClan. Firestar doesn't believe her, asking what the nonsense she is saying about hearing the dog. Firestar interrogates Dovepaw, Lionblaze and Jayfeather, asking Dovepaw how she knew about the dog and asking Jayfeather if StarClan sent a dream or sign about the dog. Jayfeather denies so Firestar asks Dovepaw if she dreamed of the dog. Dovepaw insists she heard the dog, of which the leader asks Lionblaze if he heard the dog as he was tree training with Dovepaw at the time she heard it. Lionblaze confesses he was on the ground and there was a breeze, so he could not have heard it. Firestar concludes only Dovepaw knew about the dog then. Later, during a Gathering, Dovepaw tells Tigerheart that Sedgewhisker was bitten by a dog.
