Buttons remained silent for a moment, then decided to try and talk to Peopledog Collie. She turned and…”ARF!”
Collie was gone; her seat behind the wheel—empty! The canine friends didn’t panic—all too experienced in the vagaries of cyberspace to panic. They did, however begin a search of the bus.

“Ace is a jerk!” Shadbush never much liked Millie’s younger brother.
