Cat, Dog, Bunny, and Camillian were all ordinary household pets. And all were owned by the same little boy, Tommy.  But one day Tommy’s family decided to go on a family road trip through Arizona.  There wasn’t quite enough room in the car, so all of the animals were put in a big kennel in the back.  Tommy’s dad wasn’t really paying attention when he was loading kennel, and one of the hooks to keep it closed came undone.  The back was so full, that the door wouldn’t close, so they had to tie it shut.  It was still open enough for a person, or let’s say an animal to fit through.  And so the trip began!

The road was bumpy so with every little jump the car did, more of the hooks on the kennel became undone until all of them were unhooked.  As they were leaving a pit stop, the jolt of the car starting again pushed Cat, Dog, and Bunny against the unclosed door, the result, them piling on top one of the other on the dirty ground.  Camillian, who is still left in the kennel, is always the one who doesn’t want to be left out, so he jump out and landed on top of the pile of his friends.  Tommy’s family drove, away not know that their pets were out of the car, and left them in the dust, (literally).

One other thing that had fallen out with them is a copy of the map Tommy’s family was using.  Every body was coughing as the dust cleared and looking in shock as their family drove away.  They stood up and Camillian stepped on the map.  Always being jumpy, he (obviously) jumped onto dogs back and screamed.  Cat grabbed the map and looked at it, intrigued by what it could be.  Bunny then took it out of Cats hand and said “I’ve seen one of these before, it’s what Tommy is following. It tells humans where to go or something like that.”  Everybody gathered around. “You see that dot? That must be where they are going!So that’s where we need to go. But….. how are we going to get there.” “Well by walking of course, or in your case hopping.”  Dog said. After him saying that the four friends headed down the road in search of their owners.

As they went on they bickered. Lets go this way, no let’s go that way.  They had  gone pretty far.. about half way across the map I would say when they came to a gas station. They took this time to look at the map again. Surely someone would notice four animals at a gas station. They were in the middle of a heated argument when Cat yelled at all of them to be quiet.  She pointed to a car with a trunk that was too full and a space barely big enough for a person to fit through.  They all cheered with joy and ran to it.  They filed in one by one, and went to their spots as if they were never gone.  An ya never know, maybe they will have more adventures, but hopefully not.
