"Today we find out if PJ has a chance," said Henry thoughtfully.
"He's pretty scared, so we have to help him keep his courage up on
our way to Boston."
"Poor little thing," agreed Wiggle, "he's been through so much.
Imagine, losing your mother, being left to die, yet somehow making your
way across the country to see if anyone can save your life?"
"It's a pretty amazing story," agreed Henry. "I just don't
know how far rescue dust can go."
"Think what Guinness would say," smiled Wigglebus.
"I hope she's watching over him," sighed Henry.
"Whom," corrected Wiggle.
"Huh? Whom is watching over whom?" asked Patrick, cocking his head
at the funny sound.
"Who is watching over whom," stated Wiggle.
"We were talking about Guinness," smiled Henry, rescuing Patrick
from the grammar lesson. "Maybe she is watching over PJ."
"Here they come," said Patrick. "Let's not talk about anything
"I'll turn my radio on," smiled Wiggle.
All the doggies clicked their seatbelts and Wigglebus started her
"Be brave little dog," said Patrick.
"I'm scared," said PJ.
"It's normal to feel scared," said Molly, "But we are all right here
Wiggle turned on the radio as she promised.
"Let's hear some music everyone!" she said.
"Ladies and Gentledogs, we are still in the throws of a Great Recession.
The econ-No-Money continues. Please do your best to share with others.
Help the homeless. Share your kibble. We cannot get through
this without your help..."
"Oh," said PJ. "It is so sad there are homeless animals out
there. I am so lucky that I have a home."
The grown up dogs glanced at each other in surprise. With all
that their little pup was going through, he was worried about others.
Today they were only worried about him.
Everyone except Patrick that is. Patrick was also worried
if there would be enough money to get by.
"We've met many homeless dogs," said Patrick, not mentioning that Henry was homeless once.
"We even met a hobo once down by the railroad," said Henry.
"We shared our lunch with him."
"Is he still there?" asked PJ, wondering what a homeless dog looked
"I'm not really sure," said Henry.
PJ chatted about the homeless dogs and asked questions about them
for over half an hour.
"We're finally here!" said Mommy Cricket to PJ.
"Now I really don't feed good," said PJ.
"Then you are in the right place," said Daddy Patrick.
PJ froze in fear. "What if she says there is nothing more they
"We'll all be with you, no matter what," said Mommy Cricket, trying
to reassure PJ and herself.
