"Welcome To The Doghouse"

Emily Elizabeth is with Clifford in his doghouse. She's looking at some pictures, which bring back memories of the time when he was just a puppy. She remembers back then that things were a lot different. Back then, he could fit in his food dish. Then, there was the time when he grew and they first came to Birdwell Island. She had a hard time with some things when they first came to Birdwell Island. It was a big job brushing him using a small little hairbrush. And feeding him took forever. But one of the biggest things was that he didn't have any doghouse. Each night, he would just sleep out in the yard and Emily Elizabeth would cover him with small blankets. It was definitely time to get him a doghouse. So Emily Elizabeth and her family clean out the garage, thinking it will make a great doghouse. Clifford tries it - but he himself stands taller than the garage! He tries to squeeze into it, but it's way too small for him. Mr. and Mrs. Bleakman come and see what's happening. They came over because their car broke down. They were hoping that Mr. Howard could give them a lift. Emily Elizabeth suggests that Clifford could give them a lift. Mr. Bleakman isn't sure, Clifford is so big. In the end, Clifford ends up pushing the Bleakmans' car to where they need to go. Emily Elizabeth decides that she needs some help to get a doghouse set up for Clifford. She goes to see Charley and Samuel, thinking that maybe they can help. When she gets there, there's a cat stuck in a tree. Samuel's worried that they may have to call the fire department. Clifford, however, lowers the tree branch, allowing the cat to be rescued. Samuel calls him a big help. He asks if there's anything he can do to help Clifford and Emily Elizabeth. Emily Elizabeth tells him about the need for a doghouse. Samuel suggests an old boathouse nearby. It's going to be torn down, but perhaps she can convince the people tearing it down to give it to her instead. By the time she gets there, though, the wrecking ball has already done its damage. The boathouse is demolished and there's no way it can be a doghouse now. Then, the wrecking truck driver gets stuck on a hill backing up. Clifford rescues him. Emily Elizabeth and Clifford continue to look all over town for a doghouse. But they just can't find anything anywhere. That night, Emily Elizabeth puts Clifford to bed again. She sleeps outside with him, saying that they just have to get him a doghouse. The next morning, Emily Elizabeth wakes up to the sounds of constructions. Mrs. Bleakman comes over and wakes her up. She takes Clifford's measurements. It turns out the entire neighborhood is pitching in to make Clifford a doghouse! Even Mr. Bleakman is involved, he paints Clifford's name. It's to thank him for being so helpful. Clifford heads into the doghouse and barks approvingly. He likes it.

"Promises, Promises"

Emily Elizabeth, Charley, Vaz and Jetta are out playing. Emily Elizabeth and Jetta have their dogs Clifford and Mac with them. Jetta has a new boomerang-type toy called a "squiggle stick," which she tosses. Clifford goes after it and catches it. He gives it back to Jetta, who complains about the dog slobber on it. Charley tells everyone about some baby seals who are at seal cove. Charley and Vaz want to go, but can't because they have other committments. Emily Elizabeth and Jetta, however, agree that they should go together. Emily Elizabeth says they can make a picnic. They agree to meet the next day. The next morning, Emily Elizabeth makes a lunch. She has to be careful, though, about Clifford trying to eat it. Clifford also makes preparations: he gathers a bunch of bones, to share with Mac. Emily Elizabeth waits outside for Jetta. Jetta shows up and tells her that Jenny Wincole from the fifth grade called. She wants Jetta to go with her to an amusement park called "Whoopie World" --- today! Jetta apologizes for canceling on Emily Elizabeth, but says that it's rare to get a chance to go to an amusement park with someone in the fifth grade. Emily Elizabeth decides to go to Seal Cove anyway. She has a great time there, whereas Jetta has a bad time, waiting. Plus, Mac is mad at her for canceling out. He wanted to be at Seal Cove with Clifford. At the Seal Cove, Emily Elizabeth enjoys the company of the seals but says that she wishes Jetta could have been there. Then, at Jetta's, Jetta's Mom comes up to her and says that Jenny Wincole called. She got another of her fifth grade friends to go to "Whoopie World" with her, so Jetta won't be going. Jetta thinks it's terrible that Jenny Wincole canceled out on her. Her Mom reminds her that's exactly what she did to Emily Elizabeth. Jetta decides that she has some apologizing to do. She goes with Mac to Seal Cove. She apologizes to Emily Elizabeth. Emily Elizabeth isn't too mad. They set up their picnic and Jetta even lets the dogs play with her squiggle stick.moreless
