    Cassidy and her three big brothers always wanted a puppy. But their parents said “No.” So the brothers chose all kinds of different pets. Not Cassidy! She stuck to her puppy dream! One day she finally got her wish: a brand new fluffy puppy. The two were inseparable and created a private fort. But over time she realized that playing alone wasn’t as much fun as including everyone. Even if they were silly older brothers.
