The Best Pet of All by David LaRochelle. Pop had the pleasure of reading this to Mason on Saturday night. The gist of the story is a boy keeps asking his Mom for a dog, and she keeps saying No. She finally agrees to let the boy have a dragon for a pet, but he's a very bad pet. The boy then convinces his mom that a dog would get rid of the dragon, so they get a dog.
We didn't start with a dragon, but the boys did wear us down on getting a dog. Dash has been a wonderful addition to our family, and as you can see below....he truly is the Best Pet of All.
