"Thank you Henry," smiled Wiggle. "It's one of the most important
ingredients in a safe trip!"
"And seat belts, and well behaved pawsengers," said Patrick in a fatherly tone.
"Is it very far?" asked PJ Wigglebee.
"It's about three hours away," said Molly Malone. "If you take
a nap it won't seem far at all. It's in Connecticut."
"That's where Uncle Mark and Aunt Sue live!" said PJ.
"Maybe you will see them," said Patrick.
"And Sydney too. He can see my costume! Tell me again
about the Hat Contest?" begged PJ.
"Why do they do it?" asked PJ.
"Are you asking why they dress up?" asked Molly.
"Why do they have a picnic?" said PJ.
"So they can see all their old friends, and give each other support.
It's a big rescue family." Molly answered.
"Of course they will," said Cricket. "They will love you."
Everyone agreed that PJ would be loved by everyone at the picnic."
"Of course," smiled Molly Malone. "Everyone will want to help
"Why?" asked PJ who felt guilty that his care would cost so much.
"Because they can," said Henry. "It's the right thing to do.
Besides, you have a mission. You are going to teach the world about
puppy mills, and why people shouldn't be tricked into giving money to those
evil places. You are going to make your mother proud."
"Let's sing some songs to help the time go by," suggested Molly,
hoping to cheer PJ up.
"Almost there everyone!" exclaimed Wiggle.
"Thank you Wigglebus, for always getting us to our destination, safe
and sound." smiled Henry.
"My pleasure," said Wigglebus proudly. She loved pulling up
to the picnic hotel because everyone there knew them and today they would
meet the littlest member of the Wigglebus crew.
