What do you do if your Christmas wish list is getting home a cute little puppy but your parents very logically point out the fact that you already own 2 pet dogs and won’t be able to handle the additional responsibility? Draft a cover letter, resume, and an 800-word essay and officially submit your ‘application’ of course!
According to The Sun, 18-year-old Kayla Severi lives with her family in Australia. They have two dogs named Picasso and Magpie. She wanted to bring home a Staffordshire bull terrier for Christmas but her mom wasn’t too keen on the idea so she decided to formally ‘apply’ for the position of ‘professional dog owner’.
Metro UK quoted her saying,
“I live with mum, so at the end of the day it’s her house and her rules and if she doesn’t want a puppy, I won’t be able to get one. She already said that it wasn’t going to happen, but I didn’t want to give up that easily. I decided that my best chances for her to say yes were if I asked her in a really creative way.”
“So, I wrote an 800-word essay about statistics on how a puppy would benefit my mental health and also boost my companionship, responsibility and money-handling skills. I made a resume and cover letter as well, just to show her that I’d be well suited for the role of a responsible dog owner. I went to the shops and bought her some lollies as well, just to put her in an even better mood.”
After some more convincing, her mother Melissa finally gave her approval and ‘Bandit’ was brought home. Isn’t he adorable?

“Everyone has completely fallen in love with him and I’m so happy I had the silly idea to make a resume and cover letter. I’d definitely recommend this to other kids for their parents. It worked on my mum, so you never know – it could work on other people too!”
