A tornado appears in the distance, and Pete, the farmhand, gathers everyone into the storm cellar. While they wait for the storm to pass,he tells the family about the dog dropped down by a tornado when Pete was a boy. Named Tornado, Pete?s pet was no ordinary dog -- he played card tricks, saved a turtle?s life, and had a rivalry with the family cat. By the time Pete tells all of Tornado?s lively stories, the storm has passed, and another family has been entertained by this very special dog.
