Alright, since I seem to have been mistaken, and it's not a dog-thing, it's possibly Ruby, talk to her/it and see if it's alive and healthy. If it is, take it to Red, try and get him to open up. If it's not, examine it to make sure that it's you.
I'm assuming this is either from the future, or a clone. Or the real one, and this is all a dream, which would explain physics no longer holding sway.
