Super boringly, I sit on my red, soft couch watching YouTube with my sisters. They are watching YouTube happily, unlike me. “Can we listen to music instead of watching this?” I ask. Lucy ignores me and continues to watch it. I spend all my time inside playing video games and watching YouTube. Day after day it’s always the same for us. It might sound cool to you but not when you think that's what you’re going to do for the rest of your life.
I slowly pick up my crutches and walk around trying to find something to do. “Mum should be home by now,” I think to myself. All of a sudden mum taps me on the shoulder and nearly makes me hit the roof. “YOU SCARED ME HALF TO DEATH MUM!” I yell. She tells me to go with her. I follow and find a dark, large, scary looking box. We all start to wonder what's inside.
All at once the lid springs open. In amazement we see the cutest, sweetest, furriest puppy pop out. Mum goes to her room to make a phone call while we start to fight about a name. Lucy, my big sister, says we should name him Mambo. Ivy, my little sister, says we should name him Leo. I say we should name him Dustin. Mum ends her phone call and sees us fighting on a name. “STOP NOW!” Mum yells at us for fighting and she decides for us. She tells us we’re naming him Albert. We all agree.
Screams of happiness come from my sisters, but not from me. “EEK! LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!” Lucy squeals with joy. Lucy goes and gets the ball and exits the house. Albert begs me to join in and play, but I ignore him. I watch them play and want to join in but can’t. Then the ball rolls towards me and Albert barks. I can’t resist, I pick up the ball and go and play with them.
After dinner each night we always go back outside with Albert to play until bedtime. No more boring Youtube for us. Each day is different now because we play with Albert when it’s not raining. If it is raining we bring him inside and sing with him. Albert has changed our lives.
Thanks to Albert my life now is filled with fun, sunshine and happiness. Woof, woof!
