Tawny is a coppery colored doggy who always barks twice and Gizzy is a white dog whose eyes are bigger than Malted Milk Balls. Marguerite and Sherry take the dogs up to the mountains and Sherry realizes she doesn't want to leave.

5.  METRO GOES RETRO! - It's a hot July night and Sherry cannot sleep.  She's just decided to get a cabin in the mountains so that she can take the pups on vacation whenever she wants. It's 3 a.m. and she starts to read a story to Metro. After reading the first lines, she becomes a little girl of seven years old! The year is 1958 and she is at Disneyland with her parents and Metro. Tawny, Gizzy, and the rest of the gang also make appearances in this fanciful dreamscape where carousel horses really gallop, Lori and Marguerite swim with the swans, and Lori and her twin sisters become very small to do an Irish jig. "Was it all a just dream?" Sherry wonders.  She peers closely at Metro. There, on Metro's tiny black nose, is a mysterious clue.
