ONCE upon a time there was a little prince who had a very big birthday coming up. She would be six years old. When her birthdya was only a week away, her parents, the King and Queen asked her what she would like for her birthday. The little princess replied that more than anything she would like a new puppy. Her parents told her no, that a puppy would not be able to live in the castle. The little girl was very sad but knew that her parents were right. On the day of the little girls birthday, she opened all of her other presents but was very dissappointed that she did not receive a puppy. Finally when the day was almost over and it was almost time for bed. The princess's father took her outside and showed the princess her final present. It was a puppy. The little girl asked her father where the puppy would live. Her father had built a dog house in the shape of a castle for the little puppy outside. The little girl thanked her father and told him it had been the best birthday ever.
