”Someone needs to watch Chewy,” said Daddy.
Meg giggled. “We can’t let her knock down any trees this year.”
“I’ll watch her,” said Brian.
“Can we start with the fluffy ones first?” asked Meg. “They’re my favorite.”
Chewy led the way.
“Wow!” said Johnny. “I like this one!”
“I like that one,” said Meg. “It’s so soft.
“They’re too small,” said Brian.
