Alex's Wish

Every year for his birthday, Alex wants a dog.

Every year, he says to his parents that he wants a dog. Alex loves dogs more than any animal in the world, and he wants his dog to be his best friend.

Alex's birthday is today, but he is sad because again his parents say to him that he can not have a dog.

"There are many reasons that we cannot have a dog in the house, Alex, I am very sorry", his mum would say to him every year.

"Maybe you can have a dog when you are an adult".

Alex sits in his bedroom, he is so sad that again, he can not have a dog for his birthday.

It is the only present he wants in the world. Alex starts to cry on his bed. But suddenly, he can feel something lick his face.

He stops crying and looks up. It is a puppy!

"Happy birthday, son", say his parents. His parents are smiling, and Alex is now the happiest boy in the world.
