Part 1, Chapter 14 Summary: “Tutto Va Bene...”

Granny asks Rosie if she still wants to get a dog for Bailey. Rosie remembers a dog disastro after a blind man brought a service dog to school. Rosie got excited, telling Bailey about the dog and how it could help him. Bailey already knew about guide dogs, however, and he told her that he could not get one until he turns 16 because using a guide dog requires extensive training. Rosie decided to go find a stray dog for Bailey, and when she found one, she snuck it into her garage and brought it leftovers. She was not able to train the dog. When she went to school, she came back to find that the dog had created a mess in the garage. Then, a boy and his mother came to their home saying that someone saw their lost dog with Rosie. Rosie’s mother told them that this was not possible, but then they heard barking coming from the garage. The boy retrieved his dog, Tootie, when Rosie’s mom opened the very smelly garage.
