After Kateís cat dies, her bed is a lonely place. A visit to the Animal Rescue Center proves to be just the right solution. Kate and her parents are enthralled and wish they could adopt all of the dogs, but know that they must choose only one. In the end they choose Dave, a cute, small excitable puppy. But what will happen to Rosy, an older dog well past her puppy years? They just canít seem to forget her loving look. Anyone who has ever had to make this kind of a choice will understand the familyís dilemma. Read this book to discover Rosyís happy ending.  (Jean B.
