Family Dog - Older Child

Author Keisha Cosand
Fountain Valley, California


Time: Present                                 

Situation: An older brother or sister is playing with the “family dog” out in the backyard.  It's not really a dog; it's a younger sibling.

Subject Matter: Kids, Parents, Dogs

Note from Playwright: I wrote this piece because I was experimenting with writing monologues for kids. I know a lot of kids whose parents won't let them have dogs, and this seemed like a funny way to show how desperate some kids get to have a pet.
