Synopsis: Marty is on a walk along the river and comes across a young beagle. The beagle is obviously mistreated and hungry. He allows the beagle to follow him home. Marty and Shiloh become close right from the beginning. Even though Shiloh is not his dog, Marty lies to his parents and hides him from everyone. Marty swears the last thing he will do is return Shiloh to his rightful owner, Judd Travers. The longer Marty keeps Shiloh, the more the lies build on one another. Eventually, the lies will catch up to him and they do. Find out what happens when lying, even for good reasons, catches up to you.
