          The first day we ate dog food, we thought it was chicken.  We were five years old, and dumb!  But we did find out it was crunchy and delicious!  Here's how it happened…

            We opened up a can of what we thought was Campbell's soup.  And we put it on a plate for Angel, our dog.  Then we put chicken and rice Karen's mom left for us on another plate.  We also put rice on the dog's plate.  We accidentally gave the dog our plate instead of her plate.  We started eating from “our” plate; it had crunchy brown balls, peas, little pieces of carrot, and rice.  There was also sauce on top.  We dug in.

            Then, Karen's brother, Jonathan, came in and said, "Why are you eating dog food?"

            We said, "Huh?  We're not eating dog food!  We're eating Mom's chicken and rice!"

            "No, you're eating Angel's dog food"  Jonathan exclaimed.

            We ignored him and kept eating.  Then, Jonathan said, "Why don't you look at what Angel's eating?"

            There was Angel, eating our steak!  We got depressed.

            But we found out we actually like dog food, and have been eating it ever since.  Except when there's steak.

About Ina




By Sophia L., Age 10 ˝

Once I had a bunny and I let it go outside so it could run.   And my cat went outside and bit my bunny on its neck.  Three days later, my bunny was dead! 

Then I had six fishes, and every day my cat ate one fish.

Since that time, I haven’t liked cats.

 THE END!!!!!!

Snowball is a wonderful hamster, but he will attack you at any time.  The first time I looked deep into his dark black eyes I fell in love with him.  He will let you pet him, but he will not let you hold him.  I went to pick him up and he flipped and kicked me.  Now I will only pet him and never hold him.

Even though he will attack I love him with all my heart.  Having this experience I have learned Snowball is a little karate master.

I used to have a bunny named Princess. It was very cute and my bunny ate a lot.  But we had to give Princess to my friend because I did not have enough room.  I was very, very sad.

One day on my birthday, my friend Karen called me to tell me that my bunny passed away.  I started to cry a lot.  My Dad made me feel better when he explained my bunny was in heaven.

Last year I used to have a sweet, kind, lovable, and cute Chihuahua. I loved her so much.  Her name was Blackie.  And we used to play board games together even though she didn’t know how to roll the dice.  Also, Blackie and I were like Best-Best friends. 

But one day my Mom gave Blackie to the pound.  The people next door and across the street were complaining because she cried every night.  And now I really miss Blackie very, very much.  That’s what happened last year when I used to have Blackie.

 THE END!!!!!!!!!
