    My girls have been BEGGING me to let them adopt a dog. Now is not the best time for us to add another family member, lol, but I’m encouraging them that when they get older we may revisit the topic. In the meantime, writing about dogs sounds like a great idea! Your prompts also will encourage them to learn more about pet ownership! Great list here 🙂

    I really like these writing prompts! I also feel like this would be a great road trip game–instead of writing the story, they could recite it to the rest of the car. Love it–thank you!

    My girls want a dog so bad, but I keep saying no. So much work!!!!! Loved reading this, thanks!

    My girls desperately want a dog, too. In fact it was just last night at the dinner table that we discussed how both my husband and I are (much to my kids’ dismay) allergic…At any rate, I love the writing prompts! 🙂
