Grandpa's in the Doghouse
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "Goodbye, Grandma." Tears welled up in Jessie's eyes as she put the phone down.
2 "What's wrong?" asked her brother, Scott.
3 "It's Grandpa," said Jessie, breaking down and sobbing.
4 Scott got a little alarmed. "What's wrong with Grandpa?"
5 "Grandma said that he was in the doghouse," said the little girl, trying to control her sobs.
6 Scott realized his little sister didn't understand. "Oh!" he said, trying not to grin.
7 "I don't want Grandpa to have to live in the doghouse," said Jessie.
8 Scott tried to look serious to keep up the charade. "What can we do to get him out?" he asked.
9 "I don't know!" said Jessie, anxiously. "But we need to think of something fast!"
10 "We need to find out why Grandpa's in the doghouse in the first place," said Scott. "Maybe we should go to Grandma's and Grandpa's and rescue him."
11 "That's a good idea," said Jessie, suddenly cheering up. "Let's go right now!"
12 Scott smiled. "O.K., but we need to tell mom we're going. You get your shoes on, and I'll go tell her."
13 "O.K.," said Jessie, striding to the back door.
14 Scott shook his head and laughed. Then he went into the living room to find his mom. She was sitting at a desk in the corner. He walked over to where she was and tapped her on the shoulder. Mom turned around in her chair.
