Here is a picture of me and Whiskers
have a black Labrador dog.
Her name is Sooty and she is four years old. My Mum got her for me when she was a six-week-old pup. I
called her Sooty because she is as black as soot. When
Sooty was nine months old she had eight pups. Seven were all black like
sooty and one pup was black and white. I kept the black and white pup and
I called him Spot. The two dogs sleep in a garden shed. They have a dogs
baskets to sleep in. They sleep on my old blanket. Every morning my Dad
leaves out the dogs and feeds them. Sometimes I look after them at the
weekends. They get feed twice a day, once in the morning and
again in the evening.
When we go away from home, we get my uncle
Maurice to look after them. The dogs
go to the vet got their injections to stop them getting sick. Twice
a year we give them tablets for worms and spray them for fleas. There was
an advertisment in the “Munster Express”, which is a local newspaper,
looking for a good home for a pup. We rang the telephone number and
arranged to go to Bunmahon the following Saturday to
see the pup to see if we would like it.
When we saw her we could
not leave her behind so we brought her home with us. During
the day, Sooty is tied up because she might ramble away from home. Spot is
always free and my Dad says he is better than a house alarm as he stands
guard outside the front door. Some people think he is a statue. Once
when a man came to fit a window he was afraid to
get out of his van.
I also have a cat called Whiskers. She was a
stray kitten and we gave her a home. The dogs don`t like Whiskers
and Spot jumps up at the window to try and catch her. I
like my pets.
