Chapter OneThe Cottage by the Sea
Lulu and Mellie were seven years old. They were cousins andthey were friends. Their houses were so close that it took less thanfive minutes to run between the two. They could visit each othereasily without getting lost or squished on the road.That was a good thing, because Lulu and Mellie were not justordinary friends—they were best friends.They were such good friends they hardly ever fought, althoughsometimes they did grumble at each other a little. They mostly grumbled about each other’s hobbies, which were not at all alike.“Coloring again?” Lulu would say when she went to see why Mellie had forgotten to come and play. “You’re
always
coloring!”“Cleaning again?” Mellie would ask when she came to find out what Lulu had been doing all day. “You’re
always
cleaning!” she would say, holding her nose.

It wasn’t true that Mellie was always coloring. Often she waspainting or drawing or making things with glue and glitter andchopped-up paper and causing a mess. But it was true that very oftenLulu was cleaning.Lulu loved animals and she had a lot of pets.The rule about pets in Lulu’s house was:
The more the merrier! As long as Lulu cleans up after them!
 Lulu had two guinea pigs, four rabbits, one parrot, one hamster,a lot of goldfish, and a rather old dog named Sam.It took a lot of work to look after all these pets. Mostly Lulu didit, but sometimes other people helped her out. Whenever Lulu’s family went on vacation,Mellie’s parents would always help. They would do a swap—Lulu’s family would take Mellie on vacation, and Mellie’s family  would take care of Lulu’s pets. All except for Sam the dog, who was going on vacation too. They  were all going to stay in a cottage by the sea. Sam did not think muchof that. He didn’t enjoy the seaside. He wasn’t fond of sand, he didn’tlike chilly breezes, and he hated getting wet in cold, salty water. Sam was a small, golden, teddy-bear-shaped dog. He had short teddy bearlegs, and a round teddy bear tummy, and a sweet, stubborn, sleepy teddy bear face. When Sam went on vacation he took a lot of luggage, all packedfor him by Lulu. He took his red blanket and his water bowl and hisfood dish and his special dog biscuits. Also his dog leash and his dogtowels in case he got wet, and his shampoo and his brushes in case hegot sticky.
