Scooter the dog is well known in her hometown. She and her owner Emma not only take part in Old Town’s community activities, but they also walk up and down Main Street every day to greet the shop owners. One spring day Emma is invited to a restaurant in Old Town for lunch on her birthday. Emma ties Scooter outside in the shade and promises her a long walk when lunch is finished.

But when a little dog comes along and accidentally unties Scooter’s leash, Scooter makes the decision to take the usual walk all by herself. She ends up with a BIG surprise for Emma!

Children will be delighted in Scooter’s adventures as well as in the kindness and generosity of the people in Old Town.
