My dog


It was the sadist moment of my Life When my dog got ran over by a fuel tanker. He was a golden labrador Every morning he wood  wake me up I love him so much. He was a nice dog he was the best pet I ever had.

I remember taking him for walks. At  my auntie's house we can see the track Where we used to take him for walks. He was the best.

He was fluffy and playful. I remember the first time  waking up without him i asked mum ‘Where is he .’? Then she told me what happened to him.

I was blue and disappointed when I heard about it. My life was miserable. And since  that day I never got to the dog again.
