Hey I noticed your swap on my profile! This is me responding! I have to say that I really loved this story. It was heartbreaking to see how the puppies were mistreated, but I was glad to see how determined she was to rescue them when she inherited the place.

I only saw a few grammatical mistakes. For instance in some places the tense felt a bit off to me, switching from "I am to be his successor" to "he always gave me the same response". I also noticed in the back-flash when she brought the puppy out to play, that you forgot to add a quotation mark before the father's rant.

Overall though, I really did love this story. It's very moving and powerful. Keep writing and good luck in the contest!

P.S my animal rights story is called "Unplanned". Thanks!
