Later, Shannon confesses that she was jealous of Kristy's success with the Baby-sitters Club and the jobs that Kristy was getting that used to go to Shannon. They end up becoming friends and Shannon becomes an associate member of the BSC.
The Thomas-Brewer family's collie dog, Louie is getting ill & old which forces the family to put Louie to sleep. The family throws a funeral for Louie and in the end, they adopt one of Shannon Kilbourne's puppies and named it "Shannon."

Kristy's mom got married again last summer and now Kristy and her family live in a new neighborhood. The kids aren't very friendly. In fact, they're... well, snobs. They criticize Kristy's clothes. They make fun of the Baby-Sitters Club. And worst of all, they laugh at Louie, Kristy's pet collie, who's going blind. Nobody does that and gets away with it! Kristy's fighting mad and she's not going to put up with it much longer. If anyone can beat a Snob Attack, it's the Baby-Sitters Club. And that's just what they're going to do.
