Storyline

A runaway kid comes to the dog trials with his dog Sparky. On the way he meets Marty, who sees himself in the kid and convinces Emma to let the runaway, Andy, stay in the garage. After taking a hit in his stomach Andy get pains, and the doctors finds out that he has liver cancer and they need to perform surgery, but can't do it until they have permission from Andys guardian. They had some trouble finding the guardian but they get permission and the operation goes well. Marty tries to convince Geoff to let Andy participate in the dog trials, and Geoff agrees somewhat reluctantly. Things also heat up between Chris and Mike Lancanster. Written by Johanna Swärd
