He could smell the stew and homemade bread downstairs and couldn’t wait to eat. Tonight, George would slather the warm bread with gobs of butter and dip the bread in the gravy. Turning his mind from food, George picked up a book and began to read about the Wild West and cowboys. Then for a moment his thoughts lingered on his friend. Why, George asked himself, was Jack carrying around his red wool blanket, the one that always stayed on the end of his bed? He never had come to his house with his blanket before.

The yellow lab now lay on his side on the pile of blankets, whimpering every so often, but his eyes were still alert. Jack had snuggled in beside Sinbad. He thought that even if he wanted to, he probably couldn’t get back in the dory and row to shore; it was too dangerous in the dark. All he could do was wait for Bernie. Scared, Jack worried that Bernie wasn’t coming and that he and Sinbad would have to spend the night alone aboard the 36500, that maybe Bernie and his crew had taken another boat to rescue the Pendleton crew.

Jack urged Sinbad to jump, and he did! Even though the dory was a lot smaller and lower to the waterline than the 36500, the dory lifted during a wave, and it was then that Sinbad jumped. Jack followed Sinbad, clutching the red wool blanket with one fist and the boat line with the other. Jack didn’t know what to do about the dory, so he left it tied to the 36500. By this time, both boy and dog were freezing. The wind that had helped to propel the small dory toward the 36500 and the waves that had lifted the dory to the height of the same boat now made Jack and Sinbad very cold.
