I'd like a pet




"I'd like a pet", my wife said not long after we were married.

"We could try the pound and could give a stray a home", I replied.

"Would they charge us for one?"

"Just a few pounds", I nodded as we were living in England at that time.

The first day we both were free we went to choose one.

"This is the one" she said, "I can feel my heart pounding for he is wagging his tail at us.
