Lily was sad that she had nobody to play with. She had always wished that she had a puppy to play around with at home.
Her parents heard her crying in the backyard and felt concerned, so they came out and asked her why she was crying. She asked her parents if they could get a puppy so she wouldn't be lonely anymore.
Lily's mother thought about it and told Lily that if she took on the responsibilties of owning a puppy, then she could have one. Lily was very happy to hear this!
The next day, Lily and her parents went to go find her a puppy. They saw an ad in the newspaper that there was a family whose dog had puppies a few months ago and still had one left.
They then set off to go to the address listed. When they got there, Lily saw her brand new puppy sleeping in the shed. She loved her new puppy instantly.
When they got back home Lily showed her puppy around her new home and decided to name her Piper. Lily's parents watched as her and Piper played in the back yard for the rest of the afternoon. Lily loved Piper so much already. She couldn't wait for the next day to come!
