                                                           My Pet
I have a pet. It is a dog and I call it Withy, because its color is white. Withy is Chinese breed. It is small, fluffy and cute.  It has got thick fur. When I cuddle it, the fur feels soft, Withy does not like bones. Everyday it eats soft food like steamed rice, fish or bread. Every morning I give it milk and bread.
When I am at school, Withy plays with my cat. They get along well, and never fight, maybe because Withy doesn’t like bark a lot. It treats the other animals in our house gently, and it never eats shoes. Withy is really a sweet and friendly animal.
