I’ll find your brother. You and Mom get warm clothes ready for Woody. I’m sure he’s one chilly dog now!” While Dad was gone, Mom and I gathered up towels and blankets so Woody could get dry and warm. Gathering up the towels, I saw Woody’s backpack. The pupcorn, electric blanket, and art supplies were still stuffed in the bag.
