Dear Mom and Dad,
Here are some reasons why you should get me a dog:
First, you’ll get some exercise when you walk the dog.
Second, we can get a small one so the dog won’t be huge and aggressive.
Third, I’ll take care of her, AND do school.
Fourth, kids who have dogs have lower stress levels than kids without.
Lastly, I’ll be happy.
I closed my computer and walked downstairs.
“Emawy.” I feel a tug on my pants. I look down.
“Hey Zoe, do you want a cute, furry puppy?” I ask.
“Fuwwy? Yeah!!” I got up and went to the kitchen. “Guys, Zoe says she wants a puppy.”
“Em, we know you really want a dog but Zoe’s too young.”
“She’s not, Mom. She’s the perfect age to get a dog, search it up.” There was a pause.
“Fine, I say yes. Ask your Dad.” I looked at Dad and he shook his head.
