"A dog?"
Why is Filius so surprised? Minerva mentioned the dog earlier, already.

Very cute - Sirius having a "wee bit of sport" with his favourite teacher is such a fun idea!

That was so sweet. Poor Minerva, that Sirius is quite the Characte isn't he? Thank you for such a wondeful little stoy,I loved it!

Yeah... I do so wonder how that black dog came to be on the grounds. Not. Thanks for a fun read, interesting to see this pov.

I have to snicker at this. In your mind;s eye did you envision Sirius knowing the cat was McGonnagal? If so that is too funny!

Also a nice look at the personal interaction between the Hogwarts teachers after hours.

I like to think that Sirius knew who he was chasing -- it makes the scene even more funny if he did, in my opinion. I'm glad you liked this -- thanks for reviewing!

Wow - what a wonderful story!

I think you've managed to capture the characters really well, especially Padfoot. It's absolutely just the thing that Padfoot would do in his dog-form - chase a cat up a tree - and if it happened to be the whomping willow, what a bonus!

I can only imagine his reaction when, if ever, he learnt exactly WHO it was he chased up that tree!

The writing was sublime and very prone to drawing you into the story, to feel like you were there, sitting unnoticed in a corner and watching them. I could almost feel the cold weather or the heat from the fire - brilliant writing. The dialogue was also spot on - felt very much to be in character for them, never felt it wasn't them talking.

Thanks for writing and sharing this - it certainly made this rainy morning in the UK a lot better after having read your story!

Oh my, your review really made my day. Chasing poor McGonagall up the tree just struck me as something Sirius would get a laugh out of in any form -- and I suspect he'd laugh even more once he realized who it was.

Thank you so much for your very kind words about the writing. I had initially been somewhat disappointed in this, but listening to the Spellcast reading of it made me re-think my position. Gwendolyn Grace did an absolutely lovely job.

And because this is driving me nuts, I have to ask: did you used to write Star Trek fanfic? Your name looks so familiar, and though I think I've gotten a review or two from you before, I can't stop thinking I first came across it several years ago.

That was fun! Sirius is such a stinker! Is she going to meet up with a giant stag as well? Perhaps chase a rat through the castle? This could be a lot of fun to play with. Please continue!

Thanks! I think Sirius earned his reputation as a prankster fairly. Sorry to say, this was only ever meant to be a one-shot. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it though.
