The years before

Storm opened her eyes for first time. The sounds and sights blasted full force excitement, Storm wobbled around yipping. It wasn't soon until she fell, tripping over a sandy colored rock.
As Storm stumbled up, she heard a grunt came from the rock. But wait, rocks didn't grunt, or did they? The rock sat up, revealing a floppy eared puppy. Storm smiled at the new puppy, a friend! Jumping on the puppy, Storm pulled lightly at it's ear.
"Hey!" the puppy squeaked, and flung herself on Storm. After a series of play fighting, they plopped down next to each other. "I'm Storm" Storm told the sandy puppy. "I'm Dune" the sandy puppy smiled. "You're a pretty good fighter" Storm laughed. "Ha, you too" Dune piped.
"Can I be your friend?" Storm asked. "Yeah!" Dune squealed in excitement, "but on one condition!".  Storm pricked her tiny ears, "what?". "We stay friends forever, we tell each other stuff and never lie to each other" Dune's gaze hardened, "and we never run away from each other". "Ok" Storm wagged her tail.
It was so easy in those days, being a pup. Not knowing what the real world was like, and that no matter how hard you try, you can never keep all your friends...
The Alpha stepped up onto the high rock, ready to announce the exciting news. The dogs gathered around the leader of the Pack of Rushing Water, wondering what the meeting would be about. Two pups sat wagging their tails, hardly being able to wait.
Storm a brown labodour and Dune a sandy shibu inu. The two had been friends for quiet awhile, and today was their day.
"I can't believe we're stepping up to apprentices!" Storm's tail thumped loudly. "I know right! I just hope our Mentor is still in good shape to teach us" Dune nodded, "wouldn't want to be left without a Mentor!". Storm tugged his ear playfully, "don't worry!". Dune tackled her, playfully ruffled up her groomed fur. "Hey! This coat took forever to be perfect" Storm pretending to be mad, messed up his fur. "Aw man" Dune laughed at his now spiked up fur.
"Dogs big and old, young and small! Today three pups will earn the position of an apprentice" Alpha smiled, "Storm, Blacky, and Dune please come up". "Storm for your playful and smart personality I name you Cloud" Alpha looked at the pup, "can I count on you to stay focused during training?". Storm now Cloud nodded promisly.
"Blacky for your smart and serious personality I name you Ever Green" Alpha looked at the black furred puppy, "I trust you will let a little fun leak into your mind?". Ever Green nodded. "Good, good" Alpha eyed silent Ever Green.
"And Dune for your calm and cold outside I name you Midnight" Alpha looked at the odd looking dog, "I hope you will chose to open up to more dogs". Midnight shook his head slowly. "Well then..." Alpha coughed, "please welcome our new apprentices!" "CLOUD, EVER GREEN, MIDNIGHT!" the pack cheered.

It was so easy in those days, being a pup. Not knowing what the real world was like, and that no matter how hard you try, you can never keep all your friends...

My friend made the packs up, but when I was writing this I thought about the Tribe of Rushing Water
