Submit your petpet to the Petpet
Petpet Name: Griff
Pet Name: Peydon
Hi, I'm Griff the Gallion. I'm the Petpet of a baby Bori inventor named Peydon. It's not always easy belonging to an eight-year-old prodigy. Life in Peydon's house can be pretty dangerous when you're less than a foot tall; you're constantly at risk of being run over by some huge robotic contraption, having your tail blown off by an invention gone wrong, being flung by a machine that was meant to fling chocolate chips into a bori's mouth... you get the picture. Sleeping is almost impossible, even in Peydon's bedroom. Actually, the bedroom is probably the worst place to sleep, because it's the only room in the house where literally everything moves. I remember the time I got caught in the giant gear wheel on the wall and lost half of my mane. My owner wasn't too concerned, though. After he realized he couldn't stick the feathers back in, he decided to use them to make himself wings. Yes, wings. I won't even get into what happened when I saw him fly by the window with them.
Other than the hazards that come with the territory, being Peydon's Petpet is great. He's a really smart kid who only uses his creations to help others, in some way or another. I'll never forget the day I met him, long before he started inventing things...
I was wild back then. I lived in a herd with other Gallions, on the Meridell plains. As a wild Petpet, I wasn't used to being around Neopets.
I'd never even been near one before, and when a Neoschool class came to my home on a field-trip, I wasn't scared. The elders of the herd warned me not to get too close to them, but I didn't listen. I tried to approach a group of the bigger kids, who were sitting away from the rest of the class. One of them pretended to call me over, then he picked up a stone and threw it at me! Oddly enough, his friends thought the cruel game looked fun, and before I knew it I was dodging stones left and right. I'd never been so terrified in my life. I turned to run away as fast I could, not wanting to see another Neopet again. I stopped, however, when I heard a voice behind me.
"Hey, stop! Leave it alone!"
The stones suddenly stopped.
"Who is it?" one of the kids asked.
"It's that little rich twerp," another said.
The Neopet they were referring to was a baby Bori, who was wearing a Blue Newsboy Hat. He was particularly small for his age, and the others towered over him. I was impressed by how he wasn't afraid to stand up to them.
"Don't you guys have anything better to do than hassle Petpets? It never did anything to you!"
"What do you want to do about it, squeaky?" one of them asked.
The bullies had forgotten about me, and were now surrounding the little Bori. It was my chance to run, but what would happen to the Bori? I couldn't let him get hurt because of me. That's when I remembered that Gallions had claws. I had never used them before, but maybe I wouldn't have to. I jumped in front of him, gnashing my teeth and swiping at the bullies, acting like I wanted to attack them. I then growled louder than I'd ever growled before.
"Let's get out of here! That thing's crazy!" The group of bullies screamed and darted off in the opposite direction, leaving us alone.
"That was awesome!" the Bori said, praising me.
I was proud of my new friend and I. Both of us jumped up and down in excitement.
"You saved me. Thanks."
He leaned down to pat me. "We make a great team, don't we?"
I rubbed against his legs in agreement, and we've been a great team ever since.
I've been Peydon's Petpet for over two years now, and I've never been bothered by bullies again. Our family consists of the nicest Neopets in the world, and we all live in a big Neohome in Meridell, not far away from where I was born. My owner and I have lots of fun together. We like to do things like play in our tree house and read comic books, such as the Gallant Gallions Comic. We love making new friends, so why don't you drop us a Neomail and come play with us sometime? I hear Peydon calling me; he must want me to test his newest invention... like I said before, being a kid inventor's Petpet isn't always easy, but I wouldn't have it any other way! See ya later!
