Dogs of the Rings — Part 3, The Ring Pack

So when everybody woke up and scratched and went out and ate some of that heavenly Elven kibble, they had a big council with the King of the Elves.

The idea is that someone (Frodo Frodo Frodo) has to take the Ring to the Cracks of Doom and destroy it.

Where? What? Why Frodo?!

Where? What? Why Frodo?!

And everybody but Frodo agreed that this was the smartest plan.
