"Misty, go on in and meet Miss Sylvia!"
"I'm scared," said Misty. "What if she doesn't like me?"
"Do you see Rescue Dust Molly?" asked Cricket.
"Enough to make me sneeze," laughed Molly.
"Just go meet her, Misty. You can come back to our house if
you don't want to stay," the girls said.
This WAS a big suprise. It happened so quickly that she didn't
have time to get nervous.
"I hope she likes me," thought Misty.
"My name is Sylvia," said the upright. "Aren't you the prettiest
girl in the world! Would you like to come in and have a cup of tea?"
Misty thought for sure she was in heaven. She had never been invited

"I was thinking the exact same thing," smiled Misty.
"I was hoping you would be my new lady," smiled Misty.
"You have such a beautiful home Miss Sylvia," Misty said.
"Our beautiful home," smiled Sylvia, "you are a honey bunny and I

"You're no bunny 'til some bunny loves you," smiled Misty.
"Bunnies!" thought Misty. She suddenly remembered her friends were
waiting outside in the Wigglebus.
"I have to say goodbye to my friends," said Misty, "and tell them
the good news!"
She could tell by the smiles on their faces that nothing needed to
said at all.
Patrick was already bringing Misty's belongings into the house.
"Thank you everyone!" Misty said. "I know I will be so happy
here. And good luck finding the best puppy in the world!"
"Congratulations Misty! Take good care of Sylvia! We
love you!" her friends hollered back.
"It's never too late to find some bunny special," laughed Molly Malone.
