Having a pet of my own is one of the greatest pleasures of my life. I give and get love and affection from my pet. Among pets, the most popular is the dog. Dog has been man’s best friend since centuries. There is no other animal, which is as faithful and as sincere as a dog.
I have a pet dog named Ronald. He belongs to the Doberman pinscher breed. He is a large dog with short dark hair. He is black in colour. He has a shade of golden fur on its neck and chest. He was only one month old when my daddy purchased him from one of his friends and brought him home. The first time I saw him, I was just excited with joy. My happiness had no limits. He looked like a soft black ball and was so cute. The attachment between us since then has grown stronger day-by-day.
Gradually, Ronald grew in confidence. He has become a part of our family. He plays with me. Daily he accompanies me until the gate of my school and then to my tuitions in evening. The very sight of his bright eyes and wagging tail makes me happy. In spite of being playful and friendly, he is very obedient pet. Ronald follows my instructions without any complaints. I have taught him certain things and he has proved to be a quick and intelligent learner. He is a very aggressive pet when it comes to guarding the house. The sight of a stranger at night brings out the soldier in Ronald. He starts barking wildly, to scare him away.
Ronald is allowed to enter into our home. However, he never jumps on the sofa or destroys anything. He has a perfect toilet habits. He loves to be bathed and groomed regularly. I wash his body with a special soap and warm water. He normally eats vegetarian food but also loves to have fish. I give him healthy food. He even cats rice and milk. Once a week, I feed him meat. He also enjoys eating bread, cheese biscuits and cakes. He loves playing with the ball. On every Sunday, we spend some good time playing with my bat and ball.
Ronald’s presence adds fun and enjoyment to my life. God has given me a friend to be cared by and to care for. His company has made me a more responsible and mature child. However, I know that a dog’s life span is very short and a day will come when he would leave me forever. Yet I keep praying to God to let him be with me forever.
Dogs are very faithful. They like their masters who take good care of them However, my Ronald is more faithful than any other dog. For me he is the best pet in the world.

My Pet Dog
Each day as I return from school I am greeted by my pet dog Pluto. His big brown eyes light up with joy. He barks excitedly as he takes the strap of my water bottle in his mouth and runs in to inform mother that I have come. Pluto is a brown Labrador. My father gifted him to me on my birthday. He loves to dig and bury bones in the garden. True to his breed-The Retriever, he later takes it out and eats it.
He is very faithful. No outsider can enter our house. He barks so loudly that we all know there is someone at the gate. He doesn’t bite but his huge size scares people. When any of us are ill he sits at our bed side looking sad. Most part of the day he sleeps and remains awake at night to guard the house. He makes a good watchdog. The water pond in our garden is his favorite playing spot. He jumps in whenever he feels hot and plays in the water. My mother gets very angry with him. She now has extra work to dry and brush him.
My parents regularly take him to the vet to have him de-wormed once in three months. He is also given vaccinations and anti-rabies injections. We regularly remove all parasites and keep him clean to remain healthy. After all the love and the joy he gives us, this is the least we can do for him. Pluto loves to eat fruits like apples and bananas. He is an unusual dog. My mother makes him a soup with green vegetables, chicken and rice every day. He loves milk and special dog biscuits for breakfast. Some days he eats egg too. He is my best buddy, and makes me laugh all the time. I love my pet and he will remain my best friend forever.
