Chapter One

Denby was cold and very hungry. In his two years of life, he’d never been so hungry – or so cold. Even his thick golden retriever fur wasn’t able to keep the cold out. Denby also felt confused. He didn’t understand why he’d been left alone in the back yard.

His master had cleared out a bunch of stuff from the garage and the house, thrown them in the old white station wagon, and driven away with the boy who had been Denby’s best pal. The man left behind furniture, appliances and memories.

And Denby.

After three long days waiting for his master and the boy to return, Denby knew. They would not be coming back. He had always been a good dog, and they had seemed to like him. He tried to understand why his people would do this, but he couldn’t. He hadn’t jumped on them, bitten them, or chewed their things. He didn’t bark much either. Why had they left him behind? The empty feeling in his heart echoed the empty feeling in his stomach. Driven by the hunger pains in his belly, he jumped over the garden fence and began searching for food. He loped along, not used to going down streets without a leash, and he passed For Sale signs posted on the yellowed grass in front of some of the homes. They looked sad and empty, just like his own house.

Denby had never gone further than the ten blocks of Dolores Park in San Francisco’s bustling Mission District. Now, unleashed, he roamed freely, going wherever his nose took him. He found out that the merchants on Castro Street were happy to give him treats. They told him how handsome he was and petted his head, but they didn’t let him stay. It didn’t matter how well behaved he was, they always sent him on his way. They were gentle, but firm, and Denby knew that they would never take him in.

Denby kept wandering. Soon, he found himself in downtown San Francisco, in an area of tall buildings, men in stiff dark suits, women in tall shoes, and very few dogs. There were no treats here, no one to stroke his fur and call him good boy.

After a time, Denby noticed that a large white van was following him. The station wagon that his master and boy had left in had been white. Maybe the man driving this van knew where they’d gone. Denby stopped and looked at the van, hope filling his chest with its warmth. He wagged his tail cautiously.

The driver of the van approached Denby, making clicking sounds with his tongue and said, C’mere, dog. Then someone else grabbed Denby. This someone had big rough hands and he pulled Denby’s fur hard enough that it hurt. Denby yelped as the man yelled, Got him! The man quickly slipped a loop of plastic around Denby’s neck, pulled it tight and shoved him
