Emery has always wanted a dog for as long as she could remember. However, Emery’s dad believes that her daughter was still too young and has yet to know the meaning of the responsibility.
Emery wanted to prove to her dad that she was ready to get a puppy, so Emery took out her favorite dog stuffed toy and made a video of all the things she would do to help with the pup. Emery took a clip of herself walking, feeding, and even taking the dog out for potty breaks.
Fortunately, Emery’s mom, Micky, knew someone from the rescue where she volunteers who recently took in a puppy. Micky’s friend asked her if she was interested in adopting the pup, and she immediately said yes.
Micky recalled that it was her daughter who named the dog Hippo. She shared that Emery wanted to take Hippo with her wherever she went and how she was always involved with taking care of the pup.
Hippo eventually grew bigger and started liking to join in on anything and whatever that Emery was doing. Hippo enjoyed digging on the ground whenever Emery was gardening, and she also loves to sit still for a cuddle while Emery was reading her books.
Micky recalled that Hippo used to pick Emery up from their front yard whenever she gets home from school. She said that Hippo could even hear Emery’s bus from four blocks away because her ears would instantly perk up the minute she feels that Emery is nearby.
Micky shared that Hippo enjoys participating in Emery’s homework by chewing on her pencils and standing over Emery whenever she is talking to her teachers using the Zoom app. She said she is glad that Emery found a sister in Hippo because they want to be involved in everything that the other is doing.
