Having a pet
of our own is one of life's greatest pleasures
as they give us the love and affection that we
so deeply desire. Among pets, the dogs have been
man's best friend for ages, and no animal is as
faithful and sincere as a dog.
I have a pet Dalmatian named Shiny. She is white in colour, with black spots of different shapes and sizes spread all over its body. Shiny was my birthday gift from my parents a few years ago. At first I was completely thrilled on seeing her, since it was totally unexpected, especially because my mother is not fond of pets. When I first saw Shiny, she looked like a ball of fur, with tiny pair of eyes, which looked just like marbles. Since the first day, I have become very attached to her, and the bond between us has grown stronger gradually.
Every morning, I wake up with Shiny's cold nose rubbing my forehead, as if she is in charge of waking me up for school. During holidays, Dad and I often go for morning walks with her. Shiny is a very playful pup, and yet she is obedient and a very quick learner. She becomes ferocious when it comes to guarding our house and starts barking loudly even at the sight of a stranger, trying to scare him away. Shiny's favourite food is, of course meat, but she enjoys bread, cookies and sweets equally.
Shiny has become my best companion and we spend most of the time playing together or going for walks. Although I know, she would leave me someday, yet I keep praying that we remain together forever.
