When the day arrived, Mike announced glumly, “Well, they’re here.” It was obvious that he was disappointed, but because of the intense interest of the class in the pups, I asked, “What’s wrong, Mike? Tell us more.” “Well,” he said, “I wanted a collie, and my sister wanted a poodle, but all we got were beagles—and we already have a beagle.” —NANCY

Poor animals. They must have thought they were being drafted into the U.S. Army.
