Who would have thought that so many people would be pet-less and want to adopt a pet on today of all days. Granted it was adopt a pet day but this is bordering on the positively ridiculous. Theres a good chance that the pet store had never had so many customers in the few years since it had opened. Fits and starts of excited yapping intermingled with delighted little cries of joy were ringing through the air at regular intervals.
Two hours later and you can just about stick a finger in there. A little better but not by much, however you feel your hopes start to rise. You hadnt found anything else that might constitute as a suitable replacement to your adopt a pet idea, and if the crowds were thinning then there was a good chance that you would be able find the right pet for your niece.
You find a nice little bench in front of the pet store and sit down to bide your time. As you sit there you watch in growing amazement at the sheer number of people who had come down to the pet store today to adopt a pet. Its all well and good for the pets themselves but would there be any little pet left for you to adopt?
Finally you manage to wind your way through the length of the pet store and find yourself confronted by the cutest pair of eyes staring out at you from within its confinements. Its still a puppy certainly, and it is cute, but whether you could call it small was slightly beyond you. You wanted to adopt a pet but this might be ridiculous.
However you cant shake the sight of those beseeching eyes and find yourself with an armload of Saint Bernard, a bowl, leash, collar, and any other accoutrements that you deemed necessary to keep the wiggling little beast happy. Adopt a pet day at the pet store was a success, and your “adopt a pet” idea for your nieces birthday was also a great success. Now if only your sister thought so too when she caught sight of the overgrown puppy in your hands!
