Wanted: Dog. Position available immediately.
Hello. This is Charissa.
For a long time, I've wanted a dog. My sisters thought having a dog would be neat too, but I was the one who really wanted one. It would be so fun! I could train it and take care of it and everything. I love animals.
I kept telling my sisters how great it would be, and putting up pictures of cute dogs in my room. Sometimes I'd leave those pictures in the living room, too, so they'd happen to see them. Now I've won them all over. They started looking stuff up on the internet, and now they think we'd be good dog owners. (I think it helped that our blog friend Taylor got one and posted adorable photos of him.) They all want one too!
Now we just have to convince our guardian. That has been a lot harder than just leaving cute pictures lying around. Blakeney says dogs are expensive, messy, and a lot of work. She points out that we don't have a very big apartment, and our (shared) yard is tiny. I think we could still have a dog, though! Couldn't we?
P.S. Fiona is settling in. The first night she was here, she and Bree went off and had a long talk. The rest of us were a little bit jealous because we were afraid Fiona would always like Bree better than us. It actually made things better, though. Whatever Bree told her, Fiona relaxed a lot afterward.
It's really fun to compare how they look. Their faces are very alike, but Bree's hair is a lot darker, while Fiona's is light brown. Bree's hair is chin length (she cut it herself! you can kind of tell...) and Fiona's is down to her butt. Bree is really skinny and Fiona is more average build. You can tell they're related for sure, though. I don't look as much like Kirsten, Felicity, and Molly.
