Marvin stands, frozen in place. He wants to crouch beside the dogs but cannot.

"Mr. Bojangles?" he whispers, his voice cracking "Snowball?"

"My name is Barley," the darker and larger of the Shih Tzus whispers, his voice cracking too.

"And I'm Millie," the other one whispers.

"And I'm Marvin and you're coming home to live with me. Do you remember what happened to you?"

Barley mouths "Yes" and stares at Marvin. But he says, "No."

"No," Millie says.

Marvin gazes at Barley and says, "Welcome to your new life."

(I had to make this HAPPY or I'd make myself cry.)
