The hefty car door slammed, as my sister, Casey, and I treaded through the thick, fluorescent snow. My family and I had driven to our family friend’s house who had just returned home with their brand new puppy.
“Con hurry up, she’s adorable!” said Casey as my 6 year old self still struggled to get through the thick, powdery snow.

However, I eventually reached the front door and felt the wave of an unexplained emotion rush over me. It was a exempt of all tiredness, pain, or any problems I had in my six year old life.

That Friday after school, my mom and I decided to get some supplies for the possible new pet that would be joining the family. “I’ll be in the car!” I screamed to my mom, which was a lie, knowing that it would make her hurry up. I treaded out to the car and waited for my mom.

I told her we would figure out later. We arrived at the petstore. The smell of treats and dog bones filled the air. I picked out some toys and a food bowl and my mom went to go search for a crate. Filling the car, we just managed to fit it all in. When we got home, I showed Casey all the stuff we got, and showed her the monstrous cage we bought for the tiny puppy. It was kind of weird how we bought all this stuff, even though we were not totally sure we could get the dog. “Mom, we could just put the cage in the laundry room, that rooms pointless anyways.” I said, while slowly dragging the screeching crate across the tile floor.

    After walking in the door with this adorable puppy, my parents were shocked to hear he was mine. Their first question was where I got the dog from, which I did not tell them.
