Lucinda has seen this dog day after day and has seen the dog get sick over time. She decides she wants to care for it by taking it to her apartment.
Don't worry I'll help you find him!
She puts the dog on her bed even though pets are not allowed in the apartment. It is risky for her to keep him because she and her family may be evicted.
Omg! You're here!!!
All of the sudden the dog runs away and all the power in the apartment turns off. People are freaking out figuring out how to turn the power back on while Lucinda is wondering where Chauncey, the dog, could be.
We are such great friends!
Thanks for hanging out with me!
A neighbor, Ashley, decides to help out Lucinda by trying to find her dog. They decide they have a lot in common and since they don't have that many friends of their own they decide to hang out with each other.
Lucinda knew the perfect place he would have been. She looks for Chauncey in the basement and isn't surprised to find him there.
Since Lucinda is new, because she just came from Cuba, she decides to make Ashley her new friend. Ashley tells Lucinda she will keep Chauncey so she doesn't get in trouble with the people who might kick out Lucinda if she keeps the dog.
