Everyone sat at the table as Doc Hooter examined Chippy's eyes.
“What happened to Chippy?” asked Mr. Scurry.
Doc Hooter told the story of Chippy's accident. When he finished, Mrs. Scurry looked at Chippy with tears in her eyes. Everyone was very quiet.
"Can we eat now? I'm really hungry!" exclaimed Chippy, breaking the silence.
"Well, it seems as though Chippy still has a healthy appetite.” proclaimed Doc Hooter. The whole family chuckled and smiled.
