Ilene Cooper's sixth story of a boy and his beagle follows Bobby and Lucy as they celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in their own doggy way.
Bobby has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. He might soon become a big brother, his grandmother is coming for a visit, and he's absolutely thankful for his mom's pies, especially the pumpkin ones. But the number-one thing Bobby wants to give thanks for? His dog, Lucy. Lately, though, Lucy hasn't been her usual frisky self. She's quiet. She seems unhappy. Is something wrong with Lucy?
