After the children explain to their dog the seriousness of the matter, that his help would really save someone’s home, Blackie complies and agrees to the request. Actually, he goes to town with it. He digs up a significant amount of dirt for use in the sand bags. The kids cheer on, knowing how this would make their plan work. They will need to get sandbags from over the truck or house-not sure if this is worth adding as another page just to show where they got the sand bags from.
I am trying to balance showing which oe the twins is on the fore, or which attracts more attention. Sometimes it is David, sometimes it is Sarah. I intend to make both of them equal lead characters, but obviously this will be an ongoing balancing act.
