“Mom, I can’t wait.”
“Yeah!” said Ava, as her eyes got wider.
Mom, Ava and I were on our way to get my
puppy. Three weeks ago I picked her out. She looks like this: hazel
eyes, white fur, ears that are dark brown that get light at the ends.
She was as tiny as a baby squirrel when I first saw her.
After one hour or so we arrived at the Halls'
house. I stepped out of the car onto the gravel driveway. My heart was
pounding like on the Dare Devil Dive! We or I ran to the door and
knocked. Mrs. Hall said, “Come in, please.”
And guess who was next to her? A small girl with brown eyes and blond
hair stared at me. I thought “creepy” as I ignored her, then I saw the
basket. My puppy snuggled with her brothers and sister.
I slowly walked toward the basket as Mrs. Hall led my mom to the table.
I looked at her but didn’t want to pick her up. I thought she could have
a few more minutes with her family. Finally Mrs. Hall said, “Go ahead.”
I picked her up slowly and she felt wet. She had
had a bath but felt very smooth. I held her in both of my hands
and her paws dangled. I lifted her into the air and said, “Who’s my
little puppy?” Then she licked me.
A few minutes later I ran out of the house with my pup in my hands.
After we got in the car, she snuggled on my
lap and fell asleep. I said, “Mommy, she fell asleep.” I thought,
"I love you." Four
months later, Ivy, my darling puppy, is the most amazing puppy ever.
