"My Dog"

On Tuesday, Thor woke up toward the end of school, and brought his lobster to tempt his boy to go play.
"No," said his boy, "I must write my composition. Then we can romp in the yard." So Thor lay down to play Lobster by himself, hoping to tempt his boy away from schooling.

The Composition assignment for Lesson 10 was to write a descriptive paragraph. This is what Thor's boy wrote:

"My dog Thor is a very good dog. He has light brown fur like a deer, but is much cuter than a deer. The black mask on his face makes him look like someone on Halloween, and he is so scary that the people who hand out candy on Halloween would give him all the candy. Yet Thor has none of the meanness that his appearance would suggest. He is a kind, lovable dog, always gentle with people, and generous with his treats."

Of course, big doggie hugs followed the composition, along with peanut butter sandwiches and romping time!

Happy Thorsday, everyone!
