Fifteen-year-old Angel Williams has wanted a puppy for all of her life, so she is ecstatic when her dad finally agrees she can get one – but only on one condition. She has to hit a home run in her softball game later in the day. Much to Angel’s delight, she does, and she is rewarded with an adorable chocolate Labrador named Homer.
