Hi, Mr. G. Capsis: This is Lily. I am in third grade at PS340. Today, I met a photographer from your newspaper who wanted a photo of me and my new puppy, George. She told us that her boss was also named George.
We named him George because he first lived in the country, so we were thinking of the name “Farmer” but it didn’t sound right. So I said, “What about ‘George’ because he reminded me of Curious George.” That’s when daddy said, “That’s a great idea because ‘George’ means farmer in Greek!” So Mommy said, “Hmm, maybe. I’ll tell you by tomorrow.” The next morning she came to wake me up and said, “George it is!” And that’s how we named him George.
In the picture, George is in a sling. We got inspired by a woman on the street with an adorable pug about ten-weeks old. His name was Butters.
And, I think that’s it. Thanks for reading my story.
Love, Lily Fernández-Victor (8)
