There's a purse snatcher in the park and the team has been called in to patrol the park. Dad's trying to come up with a feasible plan. The team wasn't ready to go back to work but it looks like they have no choice. Fate is calling once again.

A map of the park

Dad is in his office going over a map of the park. Dad's job is to map out a surveillance plan. He wants to utilize each and every team member. He's going to call a meeting for late afternoon. He's asked Rusty to pick up Clarissa and Katie. The girls seem to be very close to Rusty and trust him, so Dad will have them working under him. Dad had decided to give Rusty a title. During this job he was going to be known as Sargent Rusty. Everyone would refer to him as the Sargent when he was on duty. The girls would answer to Rusty while they were at the park. They may come in very handy. The only problem was that someone could get really scared and hurt them. Dad figured he would have to go over all safety precautions with the team. The first lesson would be how the team should never ever let anyone close enough to hurt them.

Rusty becomes a Sargent

Rusty came back to the house with Clarissa and Katie. Rusty told them to make themselves at home until the meeting started. Dad asked Rusty to come into his office. When the door was shut Dad asked Rusty what he thought about being referred to as Sargent during this assignment. Rusty was fine with that. He didn't think it made much difference what the team called him but, Dad felt it would be more professional. Dad explained to Rusty that he was going to put him in charge of Clarissa and Katie. They seemed to really like him and Dad thought they worked well together. If Rusty was in charge of the girls that meant he would have to look out for them, and make sure they didn't get hurt.

Dad makes Robert a Captain

Robert arrived early for the meeting and was visiting with Clarissa and Katie in the family room. The one thing he admired most about the girls was how smart they were. Robert was glad they were part of the team. Dad called Robert into his office. Dad usually didn't have one on one time with Robert so that seemed odd to him. Dad explained to Robert that he had decided to make him Captain. Robert was shocked to say the least. Why Dad was giving him a title he had no idea. Robert was just staring at Dad when he explained to Robert that it was more professional to have a title. By the time Robert left the office he was feeling pretty good about himself.

Dad calls the meeting to order

The meeting was being held in Dad's den. Robert, Rusty, Clarissa, Katie, Molly, Milly and Sally were in attendance. Dad planned on passing out assignments. The plan was to make sure everybody had a buddy when they were at the park. Dad explained that for this case they would be referring to Rusty as Sargent Rusty and Robert as Captain Robert. This came as news to Molly, Milly, Sally, Clarissa and Katie. Molly took exception to this plan. If anyone should have a title it should be her. What was this about anyway? She asked Dad and he said he'd reserved the best title for her. Molly was going to be the Lieutenant. She rolled it off her tongue a couple times and liked it. She would be known as Lieutenant Molly. Milly, Sally, Clarissa and Katie were fine without titles. That would just mean more responsibility.

Molly and Robert's first assignment

Dad decided Molly and Robert would have the first assignment beginning after breakfast. Dad was going to drop them off at the park and they were to remain their until Sally and Milly came to take over for them. They would have their trusty whistles along with mom's cell phone. If they got into trouble they could call for backup. When the meeting was over they all had pizza and talked about their assignments. Rusty took the girls back to the pet store and got back home before Dad locked up for the night. Everybody went to bed early because tomorrow would be a busy day.

Titles give authority to positions and establish a "pecking order." So good that Rusty, Robert got theirs with Molly getting the equivalent of "Top Dog!"

They have professionalism written all over them! They mean real business now with clear authority and back-ups. I won't be surprised if the purse snatchers already took to their heels or stayed under the radar forever!

Thanks Nancy, this team is no pushover and Dad is a great motivator - he can even shake his legs for now! siva

Siva, thank you so much for your comment. I think from the time Robert, Molly and Rusty were given titles the team got stronger. They understand that they have to be professional. The purse snatchers should really stay under cover because the team's waiting for them to surface.
