What a fine day for a walk in the woods.  And the witch is in a good mood -- at least for a witch.  She is getting old and her walking stick has very little magic left in it but it's enough to turn a bird into a bat or a squirrel into a goldfish.  When the dog wanders by, the witch is delighted.  She'll turn him into a cat.  How delightful.  But the dog thinks she wants to play catch so he grabs the walking stick and away he goes.  Will the witch ever get her stick back?
