Hi, I'm Martina, a student from Tremont, and my favorite character is Goldie (a dog) because she is really funny. She is so energetic, too. In the story, Goldies owner can not keep her any more because they had a fire in there house and their house got burnt down. So, her owners gave the Goldie to the firemans household. The family who got Goldie couldnt keep her ether because their mother wanted to make sure they were responsible. So they gave Goldie to their neighbors because they wanted to see her all of the time!
