Found Friends Excerpt:

Wilbur the Dog was lying in a bright warm sunbeam when he heard a faint jingle. He sat up and lifted his years. He heard the jingle again. Wilbur jumped up onto all four paws and ran over toSam. Sam had adopted Wilbur when he was a small pup. Wilbur ran in excited circles around Sam. It was time for a walk! They were going on a walk!

Wilbur was so excited Sam had a hard time getting the blue leash attached to Wilbur’s collar. Finally, the leash clicked and Wilbur stood perfectly still at the door, waiting for it to open. As soon as the door moved, Wilbur put his front paws on it and pushed it open the rest of the way. He bolted out the door, pulling Sam behind him.

“Slow down, Wilbur,” Sam said.

The little dog scrambled to turn the corner. Wilbur wanted to make sure they really were taking the right path for the LONG walk. They were! Wilbur wagged his tail in excitement.

As they walked down the street, Wilbur’s nose tickled with all the different smells outside! The first smell he identified was a chipmunk. Definitely a chipmunk. The next smell, Wilbur paused to sniff a bit longer.Was the scent a squirrel or a mouse?
