A Puppy for Oscar


Oscar wanted a puppy more than anything in the world. But his mom kept saying they couldn’t have a dog in their apartment.
“We don’t have a yard,” she said. “And a dog needs space to run.”
For a while, Oscar gave up on getting a puppy. Then he had an idea. There was a city park very close to their apartment. The park was really big. Maybe part of it could be turned into a park for dogs. Then Oscar’s puppy would have a place to run! Oscar decided he would find a way to get a new dog park.
Now Oscar had a new problem to be solved. He needed to turn his idea into a plan. How could a child get enough money to create a city dog park? He thought about it for many days. Then he went into action. Oscar wrote a letter to the city mayor to persuade her to have the dog park added.
A month later, Oscar received a letter in the mail from the mayor! He quickly opened it. The mayor congratulated Oscar on coming up with a fabulous idea. The mayor said the dog park will be built in the spring. Oscar couldn’t believe his idea was becoming a reality. Now Oscar could go back to him mom and ask for a dog. If he could persuade the mayor, he could surely persuade his mother to get a dog!
