Ruth Hannah and Jim had been neighbors since they were babies. It was a cold October day, and it was the first time the kids had a snow day before halloween. Out of boredom, Ruth and Hannah were rummaging through the basement and found a big bottle of bubble stuff and 3 large bubble wands. They bundled up in their coats, hats, and mittens and headed to the park. They were playing with the bubbles, when suddenly a big furry dog ran up to them wagging his tail. Hannah smiled and said "I'll name him Puffy and he can be our new friend! Yay!" Ruth said "I wonder where the dog lives? Maybe we should try to find his owner?" "Lets check his tag," said Jim. The kids were surprised to see that the dog came all the way from Hungary!" "He must have been a pretty strong swimmer," said Jim. "I don't think he could have swam here!" said Ruth, "We need to find out how he got here," Hannah said, "There's a phone number on his tag, let's call the owners!" They went back to Ruth's house and sneaked into her dads office to use the phone. This would definitely be a long distance call.
