A Secret Surprise
Marion, Ellie, Amy, and Liz stood watching their guest Dalmatian at The Critter Club. The dog hadn’t eaten all day. She just stood by her full food bowl, not interested.
Marion went to a filing cabinet. She pulled open the drawer labeled Critter Files. She flipped through the files inside. There was one for every animal the girls had taken care of—ever since they’d opened the rescue shelter in Ms. Sullivan’s barn.
Marion flipped past files for Digit the turtle, Lulu the French bulldog, Ollie the kitten . . . Marion smiled at the sight of Ollie’s name. He was the kitten her family had adopted!
“Penny!” Marion called out, finding the file she needed.
Earlier that day, Penny’s owner had dropped her off. She was going away for a week, so the girls had agreed to pet sit.
