Tuxedo birb

A penguin, because they are really cute. When they are little, they have a grey and white body, with a small beak. I’ve seen videos of the animals and the way they walk is really funny. They even push their friends into the water! I would have loads of fun with a penguin.

Husky doggo

I would like to have a husky. They are genetically closer to wolves than many other dog breeds. They’re big and beautiful, and have a lot of energy. A husky would be able to easily understand my commands. It is cute, and its hair is beautiful and can be as white as snow.

Fluffy bunny

I love animals such as dogs, cats, and hamsters. All of them are cute. But if I could have any pet, it would be a rabbit. Rabbits aren’t very expensive. They eat fresh vegetables and fruits, hay and grass. They don’t run around or make a lot of noise. They aren’t very big, and they can live in small flats. Rabbits do a very good job of keeping themselves clean and only need help when they are very sick. That is why I am sure I would be able to take good care of my pet.

Tiny fluffball

I would choose a hamster. The main reason is that they’re very friendly and it could keep me company when I am bored or lonely. If I had a hamster it would help me relax and stay focused.

Unicorns are real right?

A unicorn! This sounds crazy, but I have dreamed about having one since I’ve known about them. I know it can’t actually happen because they don’t exist, but I would ride on its back and fly all over the world. I would be able to feel the wind, touch clouds, and fly with the birds! My unicorn would have colourful fur and a pretty horn. It would also be loyal to me, play with me, and make me laugh! Will my dream come true one day?

Touch of the sea

I want a dolphin as my pet. I would go to the seaside every day and it would come and go freely. I would swim alongside my pet and have a great time.

More tiny fluffballs

I love tiny things, so a hamster would be ideal. Hamsters are really cute, and they always run around. My friend Ellen has a couple of hamsters, but the problem is they fight each other. Ellen said hamsters are relatively easy to take care of; they love to eat cheese and nuts, and you can play with them. I would love to have a hamster, with the blessing of my parents. It would bring me a lot of happiness.
