Excerpts:
  Pages 7-9
     

One fall day, Marshmallow and his family took a drive. The leaves danced off the car windows as they drove. He hoped he wasn't going to the veterinarian again. He hated getting his toenails trimmed. His family always call them "pawdicures," but he knew better. Fancy names couldn't fool him. He heard the tires of the car make a crunchy noise. This was the same sound they made when his family visited his grammie's house. He though he was wrong about the vet's office. They're surprising me with a day in the country, he thought. He could not wait to put on his harness and leash and go exploring. He hoped the geese would be there, becasue he liked to watch them. He waited patiently, excited to breathe the cool, crisp country air as they pulled into a gravel driveway. The car stopped. Usually, everyone jumped out of the car and started to unpack it. This time, his family sat quietly in the car. Then his dad unfastened his seatbelt, came around to the back seat, and unloaded Marshmallow from the car. Marshmallow looked back at his mom and her son. They would not look his way. He wondered why. His dad carried him into a brick building. Marshmallow heard all kinds of animals as soon as his dad opened the door. The meows and barks were sad, not excited. He sniffed the air: This place did not smell like the veterinarian's office or his grammie's house. There were dogs barking, pet carriers strewn about the place, and people sitting around. He told himself that this must be the veterinarian's office. He wondered where the nice nurse who always greeted them was. He dad set his cage on the floor and talked to a person behind a counter. After a few minutes, his dad bent down and looked into his cage. "Sorry, little man," he said. Then he stood up and walked away. Where is he going? Marshmallow thought. He watched his dad walk out the door. Marshmallow had never been left alone before.
