It’s time for the Amazing Pet Contest, and the winner gets to go on “Mr. Lizard’s Funhouse” on TV. Nancy is entering Chocolate Chip, her soccer-playing puppy. But something is wrong. Chip won’t do his trick. Nancy believes Chip is sick. She also doesn’t think it will be fair if Chip doesn’t get to go on TV because somebody played a dirty trick on her!
