Last November, I got a new puppy named Kakashi; he's the cutest thing my wife and I have ever seen. As we were taking him home after driving two hours to get him., he crawled over into my lap, looked up at me, and barked. That sounded more like a squeak than a bark. He then laid his head on my lap as we were driving home. When he did that it reminded me of my first puppy.
When I was eight, I got my first puppy. His name was Lucky, he was half German Shepherd half Chow. He was reddish-brown with black on the top of his back with pointy ears and a curly tail. I loved him more than anything. I got him from the pound back home in Arkansas, which was on a farm around thirty-five minutes from my old house. When my family and I got in the car and we finally arrived there. My twin brother, Eric, and my older sister, Jessica, and I got out of the car and walked up to the barn where all the animals were. We could hear them before we even got to open the Door. When we walked in, there were cages lined up row after row, and some were even doubled stacked high. With what seemed to be a name plates with their name, age, and the type of dog. They had doggy doors leading outside in the back of the cage, and the ones up top had ramps leading to the ground, so they could get out into the big yard out back. I was wondering what kind of dog goes up top cause the door was half the size of the ones on the bottom , and out back, it had a huge six-foot fence surrounding about two acres. It had a pond with ducks and swans in it, which I thought was neat.
During this time while observing the outside we waited about ten minutes for the owner of the pound and his three helpers to round-up all the dogs for us to look at. When they finally got them all back inside I saw that all the small dogs and some puppies went up top which explains why the top had such smaller doggy doors. As we stood at the entrance and saw all the dog in their cages I thought that's a lot of doggy food. There were big dogs that stood over me and little ones that didn't even come up to my knee. There was also ones with short hair others with medium to long straight and curly hair.
My mother told me at he beginning of the school year that if i got all A's and B's on my report card by the end of the school year i could get my first puppy. Which i thought she forgot but guess she didn't. As we were going to cage by cage looking at all the dogs from all different sizes and shapes. I saw an old dog his name was Bob he was a ten-year old english bulldog, he was just laying there his skin seemed...
