Storyline

Blaming herself when Laura's doll breaks during a game of catch, Mary is delighted to give her sad, little sister an abandoned, baby raccoon. After Pa reluctantly agrees to let her keep him, Laura names him "Jasper", teaches him tricks and tries to keep the mischief-maker out of trouble. But one day, Jasper bites Jack, the Ingalls' dog, and disappears into the woods. When Charles later shoots a snarling, rabid raccoon who is killing the chickens and begins to watch Jack for signs of rabies, a tearful Mary reveals a terrible secret... Jasper had also bitten Laura who made Mary promise not to tell. Written by shepherd1138

A very good episode! Mary accidentally let Laura brake her Glass doll.On the way back from the mercantile Mary finds a baby Racoon.She brings it for Laura to make up for the doll she just broke. Mr in galls does not like it but later gives in and says she can keep him. But their a twist in this story and a very valuable lesson that even though sometime you promise not to tell a secret under different circumstances you probably have to bc it might maybe cost someone their life This episode is good and you really learn something here The show is known for his animals and Jasper is the second "animal star" on the show. With Melissa gilbert,Micheal Landon and Melissa sue Anderson.

Now continue to episode 11
