Stanley's story

Stanley is at college. He lives with four hockey players—Hank, Holmsey, Horse, and Guy. (Hockey players have a way of calling each other by nicknames.) Stanley—sometimes known as "Stan"—is not a hockey player; he is a puppy.

He has soft brown fur and wears a purple bandana around his neck—college style. His eyes are so dark they seem to twinkle. He loves to run on the large campus lawns and ride in the car when his friends go out for hamburgers.

On the day Stanley had his healing, there was an art project going on in the backyard of the house where they all lived. Stanley was sniffing about and the boys were painting. Puppies, like children, aren't supposed to go in the road alone, but Stanley forgot. Nobody was watching when he decided to cross the street on his own—not even the driver of the car that was coming down the hill.
