Wanted: The Perfect Pet
Once there was a boy who wanted something to take care of. Something of his very own. He begged his mother for a puppy. Until she said YES!

The boy loved his puppy. He fed him and played with him and cuddled him. But soon, the dog wanted something to take care of—something of his very own. So the dog gets a pet cat; then the cat gets a pet bird; the bird gets a pet worm; the worm gets a pet flea . . . and on and on it goes as utter chaos ensues.

This heartwarming story proves that no matter how big or little you are, there’s nothing as special as caring for something of your very own.
