Nero's feet pounded the ground, taking one lone stride after another. His red shirt started to wet as sweat ran down his muscular chest.
The tall, blue-gray dolphin paced through the park, long, flat tail bouncing behind him, as his jogging rout took him around a clear lake.
Nero ran on the path, slowing a little as he noticed a familiar face sprawled on a blanket, a bit off the side of the path.
The tall dolphin smiled, deciding to say hi to the cat. It had been a while since Nero last saw Mac, in a swimming class that he taught, but he remembered that the cat was one of the friendlier furs there.
Continuing his jogging pace, the dolphin stepped off the path and ran through the field of flowers, catching the cat's eye with a friendly wave.
