My Review:
 Sheerluck Holmes and Dr. Watson to the rescue, as the friends of Sniffy struggle to find out what has happened to their friend.  It turns out the friends had hurt Sniffy's feelings, and then he ran away. Soon they realized the friends knew that they had done their friend wrong and needed to find him and fix all of this because they feared for his safety. As soon as they looked into the darkness and the fog, they had to hurry before the hounds got to him.

 They found their friend and so did the hounds of Baker Street. They asked for Sniffy's forgiveness and of course he forgave them. And all the friends decide to go to Pizza Place for a nice, big piece of cake. The lesson here was to all be kind to others, no matter the situation or cause. It is a hard lesson to learn sometimes, but we need to always be kind to our friends and neighbors.
