Madi Mullinger As we watched TV suddenly the phone started to ring. “Answer the phone, Megan!” I shouted not peeling my eyes off the screen. Megan started yelling excitingly we all knew something was up. “Megan what’s going on?” Malorie asked. “We might be getting a puppy!” Megan responded. Eight years ago my siblings and I have begged our parents to get another puppy.

While they were there they found brother and sister dogs that were super cheap. Mary- Kate called my mom and told her that she had found adorable dogs.

We finally arrived to the pet store and fell out of the car and started to run into the shop. We raced to the back only to find a little tiny puppies in big cages and some even so little they were falling through. The tiniest one was in Mary-Kate’s arms. “She’s so little!” I exclaimed loudly.
“How big do you think she is?” Megan asked my mom.

We all agreed on getting the one Mary-Kate had in her arms and brought her home. When we first got home she was just a tiny puppy in a big house with 6 kids crowded around her and another big dog. We debated all night what we should name her because we wanted her to have the same initials as us girls because she was a girl as well. We had a long list of names such as, Misty, Maggie, Muffin, and Macy. We ended up naming her Macy Kelsey Mullinger. During the first night we had her all of us wanted to play with her and there were defiantly fights over who got to hold her, but still to this day we fight over who she likes the most and wants to play
