James’ dog gets in the house with the hedgehogs. Everyone was so busy getting James’ dog out of the house that one of the hedgehogs wanders out on to the road, and gets hit by a car! But Mandy takes the hedgehogs to the vet, where per parents work. Her parents help the Hedgehogs. Mandy does not want to put the hedgehogs back into the wild. The next day Mandy had a good idea to make a hedgehog refuge in the McKay’s garden! Mandy asked the McKay’s and they said yes! So then the hedgehogs will have a safe place to live!
