Passage from the story:

 

"Look at him, David. He's all alone." Jill pressed her nose against the pet shop window. The puppy licked the glass where Jill's nose was.

David laughed. "Let's go inside," he said.

The pet store was cool and dark. Jill pushed her finger through the cage. The puppy licked it and wagged his tail.

"I wish we could take him home," Jill said.

Mr. Peep heard her. He opened the cage and put the puppy in Jill's arms. Jill touched the small spots on his nose.

"You have freckles," Jill said.

David looked at the Mr. Peep. "How much does he cost?" he said.

"Only fifty dollars," Mr. Peep said.

Jill kissed the top of the puppy's head. "Fifty dollars," she said. "I have some money at home."

"So do I," David said.

Jill handed the puppy back to Mr. Peep. "Bye Freckles," she said. "We'll be back soon." (continued...)
