Domestic animals & pets
One night, Mandy finds a distressed Golden Retriever tied up outside Animal Ark - but no sign of her owner. The dog is expecting puppies - and it doesn't look like there's long to wait! Who would leave a pregnant dog on a stranger's doorstep? Mandy can't believe anyone could be so cruel - and she's determined to find out who's responsible!

Kimble paused in her scrabbling and glanced up.

Kimble went back to ripping the paper. Her paws were moving faster this time and suddenly she gave a couple of anxious whines.
'I'm going for Mum and Dad!' said Mandy.
