Have you ever known a dog that was scared of everything?  Loud noises, sudden movements or maybe strangers?  Well, Chuck is that kind of dog.  He's a whippet and he just knows that something bad is coming to get him.  The other kids tease Danielle about her dog.  Danielle's mother keeps threatening to get rid of him.  But Danielle knows there's more to Chuck than a scared little dog.  As a matter of fact, she makes a deal with her mother that if Chuck saves the universe, he gets to stay.  And Danielle gets to go to McDonald's for a Big Mac.
