Lola wants a dog more than anything. But her parents are firm: absolutely no dogs. Regardless, Lola and her brother Charlie discuss what kind of dog they would get and what to name it. Lola wants a brown dog with a puffy tail, nice ears, a wiggly nose, and a waggy tail, who is able to hop and not bark too much. She plans to name him Snowpuff. Then, when their parents agree to another kind of pet, Charlie is not too surprised to see Lola return home with just the animal she envisioned.
