FIRST PLACE

I have four pets. I have three dogs and one bird. They're Pugly, who's three, Lola, who's two, Tickles, who's one, and Tweety who is one. Pugly's a pug, Lola's a pug too, and Tickles is a Scottish terrier. But I don't know what kind of bird Tweety is. Tweety chirps at people when they walk by. Same with my dogs. When I throw a ball Tickles won't bring it back, then I chase her. But she runs in the bushes. Tickles will only give me the ball if she sees food. Tickles is a glutton! Lola is just good at cuddling and sleeping. I have this big blue ball, and if I throw it, Pugly starts attacking the ball like it's his enemy. Pugly, Lola and Tickles can catch food. Pugs are supposed to be really good family dogs. Tickle is fiesty. Tickles specialties are chasing rabbits, yapping and digging holes. Man, my dogs are so cute and funny!

I have one pet which is a dog. My dog's name is Reagan. He is a golden doodle. A golden doodle is a golden retriever and a standard poodle mix. I like to play hide-n-go seek in the dark because he is hard to see. When friends come over we play ball with him. Sometimes we call him "sock stealer" because he steals socks. He loves to run, so I have to take him on a walk almost every day! He will listen to almost anything you say. Just like sit, stay, roll over, come and even more. I like him because he doesn't bark at other dogs, except my neighbor's dog. I love Reagan.

I have a girl toy poodle at my house. Her name is Princess because she is a Princess. I like her because she is friendly, helpful, and just really cute. Princess is very young and medium-sized. She is a cry-baby sometimes because she wants me to feed her ham. Princess is very, very playful, trust me. Sometimes she catches a ball and gives it back to me. Princess can sit when I tell her to sit and she can play dead when I say play dead. I don't know how old and when her birthday is. I love having Princess around.

I have one playful pet. The pet I have is a labrador retriever. Her name is Angelina Crystal Mercado. She is the fifth dog I've had in my whole entire life! Angelina is about two years old in dog years. My brother Sean and I love that Angelina is playful and we wouldn't give up Angelina for anything. I like making Angelina do tricks like sit or roll over, which she already knows. I love Angelina.

I have a healthy pet. He's a fish named Bubbles. Bubbles does a lot of weird things, like stares at the food when he's hungry, sleeps on his flower toy, plays dead and stares at people coming to him. What I like about him is that he eats all his food. When I tap on his bowl he comes to me. I love my fish.

I have a dog named Timber. He is mostly brown and black. Timber lives in my backyard and he has a bed outside. He sleeps under our treehouse. He splashes when we give him a bath. He likes to walk around the yard. Timber always waits at the door when he is hungry. We always give him a lot of food and water. I like that he doesn't jump or bite. I think Timber is a good dog.

I have two dogs. Their names are Zack and Zoey. Zack's a pugle, that's a pug and a beagle mix, and Zoey's a mix. I like Zack because he's tiny and he's funny. He's funny becaues he makes these weird noises. We say it sounds like he's speaking anohter language. Zoey is a medium dog. She's always running around and plays with Zack. She likes to play in the backyard. She's really pretty. Zoey has blue and brown eyes. A lot of people like her eyes. I love my dogs.

I have two dogs. One is named Tri-tip, who is four and a black lab. She can't do any tricks. The other dog is named Coal, who is nine and is a black lab too. Unlike Tri-tip, Coal can do one trick, which is to fetch and bring it back to you. I have two bearded dragons, too. One is named Reptile, who is 1, and he can bop his head to the music we play. The other one is named Lucy, who is 2, but she can't do any tricks. Bearded dragons are cool because they can hold on to your shirt and when they're scared their scales go up and get all sharp. I love all my pets and they're my favorite subject in the world!

I have 2 pet cats and their names are Peter and Meimei. I like my cats because when you are bored, my cat Peter keeps you company. Like every morning my cat Meimei meows in my ear. She is crazy when she wakes me up. Then she sits on my and I can't get up. Then I am late for school. It is kinda funny when my cats do these things. I actually like when they do that.

I have two dogs. One is big and the other is small. The big one's name is Aurora and the other is Jack. I like Jack because when he licks me his tongue is so soft. I like Aurora because she can do lots of tricks. She can sit, stay, shake, and she can kind of roll. Aurora loves to play with balls and sticks. Jack just runs in the yard, chases lizards and digs holes. My dogs are very hyperactive. When my dogs were in the pound they were sad and lonely, but when they came home they were very happy. I got Jack in June, and I got Aurora in October. My dogs have a happy life.

I have two pet dogs. I have one girl and one boy. The boy dog is named Ranger, and the girl dog is named Jonie. This is what I like about them. Ranger listens to you and does what you say. Jonie is just lazy, but she won't bite you or jump on you. Only one dog can do a trick, and that is Ranger. When you say sit, he sits. When you say "paw" he will put his paw in your hand. When you pet him and then tap him on the other side he will roll over. I love my dogs a lot.

I had 14 pets. 11 pets passed away. I had a bird, 9 fish, and 1 moon crab. But, I still have 3 pets. I have a cat and 2 birds. My littlest bird is named Tango. He is 3 years old now, and his birthday is in March. He has a huge cage. We got Tango from Petco. He can say: Step up Tang, in a funny voice. We got him a little straw hat. Tango is a green cheek conure. My other bird's name is Emily. She is turning 6 in August. Her cage is as big as Tango's. We got Emily from Bird Bungalow. She was for free because she was a rescued bird. Her cage was for free too! She can say everything. My cat's name is Clawed. He is turning 13 in May. He doesn't have a cage, though. My Mom has had him since he was 3 months old. Clawed just meows a lot. He is black and white. I don't know what kind he is. My pets are so cool. I really like them because I can play with them anytime I want.

I never had a dog, but if I had a dog, I would name her Cookie. I'll show her tricks. I could show her how to fetch. I could show her how to run in a circle. I could show her how to go down the slide. I hope I get a dog someday.

I have funny and weird pets. My baby bird, Marshmallow, does a freaky dance. He puts his head up and down and moves during the song "Pump Up the Volume," and he smells like marshmallows. My older bird, Showmono, is scared when we open his cage, and everytime he flies, he flies into something. My last pet, my dog Duke, can run up to 10 miles per hour, but he gets tired after that. He also can go over a six foot wall. My pets do freaky things inside and out.

My dog's name is Sparky. He is the most crazy dog in the world. He barks when he hears people outside. Sparky is a lemon beagle. He isn't smart so he can't do any tricks. Sparky is fun to play with because he will get a ball, but he won't give it back. When i got him he was sick. We took him to the vet said he had kennel cough. When it went away, Sparky went out of control! He chased my cat, Rascal, on top of the refrigerator. Now you know why Sparky is crazy.

I have two pets. One is a fish, and the other is a dog. My fish's name is Nemo, and my dog's name is Zina. i like my pets because they are fun to play with. I like playing fetch or teaching Zina how to do something. Once I'm done I'll give her a treat. When I play with Nemo, I time him while he is going in circles. Then, I feed him. I love my pets so much. I think they are so cool.

I have four pets. Their names are Milo, my dog, Kiley, my kitten, KK, my guinea pig, and KC, my cat. KC is 16 (old enough to drive a kitty car!) Kiley is not even a year old and very very frisky. Milo is 11 and KK is one year old. Milo's a toy fox terrier. I like Milo because he's a dog that kills rats and knows how to fetch a ball. What I like about Kiley is that she gets the things you throw then brings it back. What I like about KK and KC is that they both lay somewhere in the house or in the cage for the whole day! I love my pets so much!
