Like many kids, 17-year-old Clara Foster has been begging her dad for a puppy. After her beloved 13-year-old dog passed away recently, she asked her father what she could do to convince him to let her get her a puppy — and she came up with the idea of retweets on Twitter. “How many retweets do I need for you to say yes to the puppy,” she texted her dad, Tony. “1,000,000,” he replied. She negotiated the total down to 100,000 and he agreed. Now, two weeks later, @claraf_ication is almost halfway there — she had 49,000 retweets as of this morning, and her story has made national headlines. We’ll be watching to see if she gets the adorable puppy she wants! — Read it at Today
