When David discovers that Nightmare, Blair's dog, is very real after all, he helps Blair and his sisters break the family's "no pets" rule. Their plan to hide Nightmare works until the dog disappears, and Blair goes off to find him. David knows no six-year-old kid should wander around in the woods alone, but there's an added danger.
