Silver Nichols -- yes, that's really her name -- loves dogs.  And she would love to have one of her very own.  Since her parents were killed in a car accident, she has lived with her grandfather who won't allow her to have a dog.  He says she'll have one over his dead body.  So she pastes pictures of dogs above her bed and wishes.  There are 52 pictures now.  Then she gets a great idea.  What if she earns the money and buys herself a dog?  Wouldn't that work?
