|No sooner had Cricket and Molly told the others their urgent news,
when an upright appeared at the door with her trusting dog "Misty"
The upright left a box with all Misty's worldly possessions, turned
and left. She barely said a word, and didn't even give Misty
a kiss or pat good-bye.
Cricket was surprised to see that the upright never even looked back.
Poor Misty was in shock. She had heard of uprights doing this
to other dogs, but never in a million years did she guess it would happen
"Nine faithful years I have served her," thought Misty. "This
must be some mistake."
The thud of a car door closing, and the skid of tires speeding off,
told Misty that she had just been dumped, but she refused to believe it.
