Buddy had had a rough week. He felt down and out and was ready to throw in the towel. He felt
sorry for himself, lying on the couch and moping, when suddenly there was a knock on the door.
Buddy got up and opened the door to find a tiny pug standing there with a big smile on her face.
“Hi there!” she said. “My name’s Pixie, and I’m here to cheer you up!”
Buddy was a bit taken aback, but he was so relieved to have some company that he welcomed her inside.
Pixie bounded around the house, exploring every nook and cranny. She found the kitchen and immediately started baking Buddy some cookies to make him feel better.
After the cookies were done, Buddy and Pixie sat on the couch watching movies. Buddy couldn’t believe how much fun he was having with Pixie. She was so full of energy and enthusiasm that he almost forgot how down he was feeling.
As the night wore on, they started to talk about their lives, and Pixie told Buddy all about her adventures and how she never gave up, no matter how hard things got.
Pixie’s words so inspired Buddy that he decided he would keep going too. He thanked Pixie for her motivation and friendship and vowed never to give up.
And from that day on, Buddy and Pixie became best friends and were always there for each other when times got tough.
