A Fish Named Fido

Fred was a very happy 7 year old boy. He had everything he wanted except for one thing - a dog.

Every day Fred asked his mother and father if he could get a dog. Their answers were always the same. "Not now. Maybe next year."

He begged and he begged. No dog.

Fred's father got sick of all the dog talk. He went to the pet store and came home with a fish. This was not a goldfish. It was a dog faced puffer fish.

"It doesn't bark and I can't take it for a walk, but this is as close to a dog as I'm going to get!" said Fred. He named the fish Fido.
