I'm looking forward to

seeing you and your sister.

Don't forget Chinook.

How could I forget

that crazy dog?

He is crazy.

Anyway, look, buddy,

I got to get back to work, so...

Wait. I want to tell you about

my baseball game yesterday.

We were down three runs,

and all the bases were loaded.

It was the ninth inning.

I went up to bat, and then I...

Hey, Zach, look,

why don't you tell me

all this stuff when you

arrive in person, okay?

I'll see you in a couple hours.

Okay? Bye-bye, son.

I hit a home run.

Dad's busy, huh?

He's always busy.

Well, then,

it'll be up to you guys

to take his mind off work

for a little while.

I think the plane's here.

Okay, come on, you two!

Let's go.

- Don't forget Chinook.

- Let's go.

Oh, don't worry.

He's going.


- Hi, Charlie.

- Mrs. Wade, so nice to see you.

Oh! Thank you.

This is my daughter Hannah

and my son Zach.

- Hi, Charlie.

- It is a pleasure to meet you two.

- Hey, Charlie.

- Hello.

And who is this beauty?

That's Chinook.

- Oh!

Sorry. He gets a little

rambunctious sometimes.

He's crazy.

There you go.

Wow. How did you do that?

Oh, I know

a little bit about dogs,

especially these ones.

It's a working breed, you know.

If they don't have a job

to help them burn off

the excess energy,

they can be a little bit,

well, rambunctious.

All right, let's get your

luggage aboard, shall we?

- Come on, boy.

- That one's mine.

- I figured as much.

- Come on, Chinook.

All right, you guys.

Do whatever Charlie says,

okay, and be good.

Okay, Mom. Got to go.

- All right, honey. All right.

- Love you, Mom.

I love you too.

Oh, I love you, sweetie.

I'm wearing the medallion

you gave me.

Oh, good, sweetie.


Have fun, okay?
