Once there was a puppy named Anastasia. She got
lots of attention from her loving owners, Alyssa and Callie. Callie and
Alyssa were sisters. One day Anastasia ran off and got lost. Callie
never noticed, but Alyssa was very sad.
Only after Anastasia was missing for five days did Callie notice that
she was not there. Both of them searched frantically through their
drawers and closets, but they did not find the puppy. Finally they let
Meanwhile, Anastasia was having fun. Her first friend was a parrot.
Together they looked for a coconut to play ball with. On the way they
met a fox cub. His name was Mason. They asked him if he wanted to play
ball with them. He said, “Yes.” Together, they looked for a coconut
“I am thirsty,” said Anastasia.
“Wait,” said the parrot.
“There is a well nearby. We can see if there is any water left,” said
the fox cub.
“No, no,” said Anastasia. “It is okay. I can wait,” and on they went.
Finally, they found a coconut tree. To get the coconut, the parrot flew
to the top with Mason in her claws. Next, the parrot, whose name was
Precios, pulled on a coconut. It almost fell, but Precios swooped down
and Mason got it with his mouth. Precios flew straight above Anastasia,
Mason dropped the coconut, and Anastasia caught it. “We did it, we did
it, we did it,” they chanted.
They also found another friend to play ball with. It was a cat. Her name
was Hannah. She was shy and nice. Hannah had brought a branch so they
could play baseball. Mason was the pitcher, Precios was outfield,
Anastasia was umpire, and Hannah got to be the hitter because she found
As the years passed, all four of them grew to be best friends. When
Anastasia was about thirteen, something exciting happened; she had
babies, three of them. Two were boys and one was a girl. They were
triplets. Hannah got to name one of the boys, Precios named the other
boy, and Mason named the girl. The puppies were called James, Evan and
Anastasia told her friends that they could visit them anytime. As
Anastasia’s friends left they made up a song that goes like this:
Best friends always together
Best friends never alone
Best friends even when we are apart
Best friends deep in the heart
Oh! We are best friends deep in the heart!
You help me see my way through thick and thin – nowhere you go
When I think of you I am never lost and that’s how I know that’s how you
show… (Best friends)
Anastasia and her children lived happily ever after.
