Just Another Day 

(50-word Story)

By Ally

“Welcome to our adoption center,” Mr. Blake ushers people inside.

Time to please them. Maya barks softly. Kenny shakes his tail. Misty shows her pleading face. I know these tricks, but my limp hind leg is too obvious.

Maya is adopted. To me, it’s just another day in my kennel.

  1. Thank you! It’s based on my experience of visiting several local shelters. The dogs there are waiting to go home with someone.
