Josie, Aiden, and their yellow Labrador siblings Sasha and Zipper were a happy family—until the couple broke up and separated the dogs. One day at the Madrona dog park, Sasha and Zipper switch places, and it isn’t long before Josie and Aiden realize they have taken the wrong dog home. And that, maybe, their break up was wrong as well…

THE PUPPY TRAP (Part 1)

Sasha

I sit by the front door, my tail thwacking the floor. I hear Josie moving through the house, picking things up and putting them down, going here and there, until at last she arrives and opens the door. I step onto the front porch and take a cautious look at the yard, the street, the sidewalks. Two cars are going by, but I don't see anything dangerous, no monsters or gangs of attacking dogs. I sniff the wind, checking for wolves and coyotes. When I'm positive nothing vicious is going to catch me unawares, I trot down onto the grass and take a sniff around.

Good--everything
