James worked selling newspapers during the week and mowed lawns on the weekends. After six months, James had enough money to adopt a puppy and buy a dog house.

James spent the next week going down to the animal shelter and talking to the volunteers about every dog they had for adoption. There were small dogs, big dogs, hairy dogs, and loud dogs. The one that James liked the most was a little puppy dachshund. It was only six months old.

James paid $100 for the little dachshund and $50 for a dog house. He also bought two dog bowls for food and water, and a collar with a name tag.
