My  hamster  is called Will. He is very small and he eats sunflower seeds. His bed is fluff. We have a big cage for him but I could not bring him in it. Jack’s dog Tilly was sitting beside him. I brought him on the bus . He was hard to get on the bus but I got him on the bus. I got him on the bus. I left my little sister hold him on the bus and everyone came over to her. At the end my Nanny brought him home. He got blessed on Tuesday as we had a prayer service in honour of St Francis. We all brought in our pets to get them blessed.

I have a dog called Bica his breed is a Hungarian Puli. His curls were down on the ground when we got him. He is black and has a white spot on his chest. I said we should have called him spot. Bica means small black coffee in Hungarian. Well he is small and black but he is a dog not coffee.






My dogs name is Blackie. His colour is all-over with some white down his neck. His breed is a mixture of all different breeds. His favourite  food is chicken and ham. He loves to lie in the sun and fall asleep. You may think this is strange  but my dog Blackie and cat Fluffy are best friends. Blackie is very caring and a very big hearted dog he wouldn’t hurt a fly. That’s why he’s the best dog  in the world!
