Sample of an Essay on My Favourite Pet

I wake up in the morning with the best cuddles from my pet dog Max. We adopted him when he was a few months old from a pet adoption centre. I got him as a gift on my eighth birthday. Max is a light chocolate Labrador. He is very soft and has a cute wagging tail.

I like to take care of my pet dog by giving him water, food and by playing with him. I take him out daily in the evening with my mother for some fresh air. We go to the park and let him run around and play with the ball. Max loves water too. We bathe him once a week with a dog shampoo. Once in a while we also take him to the vet, to get his nails and hair trimmed. We even take him with us for short one day trips in our car.


Usually we feed Max with rice, veggies daily. twice a week chicken also. He sleeps for 10 -12 hours a day. He gets newspaper for my dad from the door. He wakes me up in the morning. After I am back from school, I play with him and cuddle him too. He even plays with my baby brother. He guards him when he is sleeping and when others are busy with household activities.

We are unable to take him when we go for a week or more on a holiday. Max is then taken care of by our family friend. There he has his friend Jimmy; who is a black Labrador. They both have fun time as my friend Riya too love pets especially dogs.
