In Pursuit Of Happiness

Chester was a tiny little dog. He was excited to start puppy school, but he was also nervous because he had no idea what trade he wanted to pursue.   After months of waiting, he finally realized he wanted to be a guard dog.   "Chester’s mom had given him all of the time in the world to choose what trade he wanted to learn. But her patience was wearing thin.   Chester, have you decided what you want to do with your life? All of your brothers and sisters have already gone off to pup school and graduated.

I’m really looking forward to seeing them tomorrow.”  When he got home from school, Jimmy got to work frantically, trying to put together a project.
