meeting went on, and after everyone had promised to keep their eyes open and report anyone acting suspiciously, or looking like the thief, Peter declared the meeting closed. 'Almost twelve o'clock,' he said, looking at his watch. ' My word, how the time goes when we talk and talk! Well, good luck, everyone - and be sure to report anything interesting.' He and Janet walked back to the house, Peter carrying the empty cups. 'A jolly good meeting, wasn't it?' he said. 'Jack's missing something
Mother, have you seen him?' 'I haven't seen him since I came to bring you buns and cocoa,' said Mother. 'Don't look so upset, dear - he's sure to be about. He may have gone rabbiting.' 'Not in the snow, Mother,' said Janet, in a trembling voice. 'Mother, I've a dreadful feeling about him. He's stolen -1 know he is! Oh, Mother!' She flung herself on her mother and cried bitterly.

'Oh, Mother I' said Janet, 'will he get Shadow back again?' 'I hope so,' said her
and had taken him for many a walk. Now he was gone! Would they ever get him back ? ' Daddy, wait a minute - don't telephone the police yet. Another dog's been stolen!' said Peter, rushing up to his father. 'Pam, tell my father about Snowy.' Pam sobbed out all she knew.' My Granny let him out last night, about nine o'clock, as she always does - and when she called him, he didn't come in! She called and whistled and then put on a coat to look for him. But all she saw was - was - boo-hoo-hoo
