The magic of Lassie is not just a movie script made in magicland USA, but for many a young boy and girl it may well be the theme song for their feelings about a little dog that just happens to live at home with them, and for most of these persons who have dogs at home, the greatest problem, pooperscooper notwithstanding, is that these dogs believe quite honestly that they are human beings and members of the family. In a sense this decision might be dedicated to just such a four-legged member of the family. The facts are, at least at the beginning, not uncommon to many a home, where a pet permits his owners to live with him. As often happens, the pet . . . took ill on the weekend and the owner was unable to reach a veterinarian.
