Settle in, Jessie, I have a story for you.

Really? I loves stories! Is it about a dragon? Or an ogre? Or--

Jessie! Let me tell the story! Okay, once upon a time, there was a beeYOUtiful cowgirl. 

Oh Casey! I love cowgirls! They're so much better than silly princesses.

Listen to the story, Jessie.

Sorry! I'm listening. Look how good I'm listening.

Okay. SO. Once upon a time--

You said that part already!

--There was a beeYOUtiful but annoying cowgirl.

That part sounds a little rude.

And she ended up in a skeery place. She was away from her family and the wonderful life she was SUPPOSED to have. Instead, she was all alone in a cold concrete cage at a place called a SHELTER.

CASEY! Those places are skeery! Does the cowgirl escape?? Does a handsome prince come???

Just listen to the story, Jessie!!

Ow! Sorry, I'll listen, I'll listen!

ANYway, the cowgirl didn't know what would happen to her. But THEN a magic fairy godmother appeared in the shelter. And she said, "Hello, beeYOUtiful cowgirl! I'm from LBR, and I'm here to rescue you!"

CASEY!!!!!! I know this story!!! I know who the cowgirl is!!!

Look, it's ME! I was the cowgirl in the skeery shelter, and the magic LBR godmother came to take me away!! I was so skeered still. I wasn't sure what was going to happen!

That's right, kid, but the LBR godmother took you away, got your vet care, and got you all ready to come meet your foster home. Which was US.

It was wonderful, Casey! And that's why yesterday was my birthday, right? 

Yes. You turned three years old, two years since you left that skeery shelter.

And we lived happily ever after, didn't we, Casey?

Of course we did, Jessie. That's how all good stories end.

....Is she asleep at last?

Dawg, this storytelling is hard work!

 Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESSIE!!! We're so glad to have you in our lives. Here's to our happily ever after!
