Marci's Mean Mom, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Marci and Barb were friends from school, but this was Barb's first visit to Marci's home. Barb stood on the front walk and took a deep breath.
 
2     "The air is so much better here than in town," she said. "You are so lucky to live in the country."
 
3     "I guess so," said Marci. "Mom thought it was better for us to live out here."
 
4     "You're lucky," said Barb. "My folks hate yard work, so we have the smallest yard they could find and have a service look after it."
 
5     A small jumble of bright eyes, cold, wet noses, and wagging tails met the girls at the door. Barb laughed as she was introduced to each one.
 
6     "How many dogs do you have?" she asked.
 
7     "We have four of our own and two that we are fostering while they are waiting for their own homes," said Marci.
 
8     "Are they your only pets?" asked Barb.
