THE NEW PUPPY
By Michael O'Toole
“We’re getting a new puppy! We’re getting a new puppy!” I yelled to my sister Angela.
“We’re getting a new puppy! We’re getting a new puppy!” Angela screamed as she joyfully jumped up and down.
Daddy said, “We’ll go to the pound and find a puppy that needs a good home.”
“Then we’ll adopt him and make him part of our family,” Mommy said.
The next day, we went to the pound. There were so many puppies, I wanted them all. But Daddy said we could only have one.
How could we choose from all the cute little puppies that wanted to go home with us?
Daddy said, “I have an idea. Why don’t we choose the saddest puppy in the pound? Then we can make him the happiest puppy in the world.”
I saw a very sad little puppy with floppy ears. He looked so lonely sitting in his cage. “That is the puppy I want!”
“Me, too,” yelled my sister Angela.
“Me, too,” said Mommy.
“Me, too,” said Daddy.
When we picked up the puppy to hug him, he wagged his tail and licked our faces. Now, he was not a sad puppy.
Can you guess what we named him?
