I entered a jewelry store on the city's affluent Near North Side. The proprietor excused herself and returned with an enormous red Doberman pinscher straining at the end of a leash. She stood; the dog extended toward me, silent to my questions, her eyes bulging nearly out of her head. I took a cursory look around, nodded, and bade her good night.”
My grandmother kitchen is my icon of exquisite taste. I grew up with her, and she owned a pupuseria in my childhood. Tomasita’s Pupuseria was the most popular pupuseria in my town, every weekend her house was full of people waiting to get a table or to take pupusas to go, one of the best memories ever. The smell of pupusas all around the block was paradise. It was her tradition to feed first her family before the pupuseria opened, so we as a family were the first ones to eat her exquisite dish.
Occasional excursions to Milan or Paris or London. They blend together in a haze of must and velvet and sawdust to the point where she sometimes does not recall what country she is in, not that it matters. Her father brings her everywhere while she is small, parading her like a well-loved small dog in expensive gowns, for his colleagues and acquaintances to fawn over in pubs after performances. When he decides she is too tall to be an adorable accessory, he begins abandoning her in dressing rooms or hotels. She wonders each night if perhaps he will not return, but he always
The rooms were crawl with the small cleaning animals, all rubber and metal. They thudded against chairs, whirling their moustached runners, kneading the rug nap, sucking gently at hidden dust. Then, like mysterious invaders, they popped into their burrows. Their pink electric eyes faded. The house was clean” .
Paragraph 1: Introduction Imagine living in a world where there is less stress, fewer emotional problems, people are happy and healthy, and those who have a physical disability no longer have to depend on others for assistance. There are disabled people who need help getting around and doing daily chores. There are some adults and children who are in poor health and need to become more active to stay healthy, and do not forget the elderly who are sometimes isolated and need a little companionship. The intelligent solution would be for everyone to have a pet, not just those mentioned above. There are several benefits of owning a pet; they can provide support to the disabled, they help people keep physically fit, and they inspire the lonely
The children help the puppies get used to people, they could be doing holding the dog, giving the puppy a bath, and talking to them. They would also take the puppies to a nursing home or the mall to get the pups used to a different place. This would help the kids with responsibility and trust. These dogs must learn to not be afraid of any
In the newspaper article “He Can Turn a Rescue Dog into a Broadway Star” by Harrison Smith, readers learn how an ordinary dog can become an extraordinary star, with help from experts, and being unique. Nessa, a three year old cairn terrier known by her stage name Toto, Dorothy’s feisty dog from the “Wizard of Oz” is treated just like any other Broadway star with her own dressing room, and stylist and makeup artist.

Berloni is making a musical that Nessa will be starred in along with other unique pups Berloni adopted from a shelter. With pups like Nessa proving a rescue dog can become
The dog padded wearily, thinned to the bone, covered with sores. It tracked mud on the carpet. Behind it whirred the angry robot mice, angry at having to pick up mud and maple leaves, which, carried to the burrows, were dropped down from cellar tubes into an incinerator which sat like an evil Baal in a dark corner. The dog ran upstairs, hysterically yelping at each door. It pawed the kitchen door wildly.
“My favorite memory in this dog park was when I first came here,” says a young female named Michelle as she is remembering what happened in that day with her small dog named Princess,” I couldn’t get my dog to drink the water from the water bowls in the park. The dogs put their muddy toys in the water bowls. She refused to drink from the water bowls. She waited until we went home.” Michelle was smiling while describing her first experience at the Alameda Dog Park in Oakland.
Getting a Dog Have you ever been so happy that you couldn’t talk well that was how happy me and my sister were when we were allowed to get a dog. So after a night me and my sister couldn’t sleep we got up at like 8:00 because my parents would of gotten mad at us if we woke them up any earlier. So we ate breakfast and ate and like usually my parents procrastinated till it was about 11:00 and Petsmart stops showing the dogs at 12:00 so then we went to see the dogs and we found the one his name was hambone and he was cute he was beagle part basit.
You walk into the “puppy store” at your local mall, you are overwhelmed with joy seeing a ton of baby dogs surrounding you. There are Huskies in one corner, Golden Retrievers and Pugs in another. The price tag reads “$3,000 (not including vetting or tax)” but you don't care. All you can see is the perfect, precious adorable puppies sitting in front of you… But, have you ever thought of how those babies came to be?
I was finally introduced to the dogs I had been hoping to meet. Puppy breath floated around as sharp claws tickled my skin from the cats near me. Pit bulls, Chihuahuas, Shih Tzu’s, Bulldogs, and Basset Hounds were just some of the few breeds of dogs that were housed in the rows of metal cages. “Our main goal is to make sure we pair up the perfect family with their own perfect animal here to make sure we get the best relationship possible,” Monica’s Spanish accent said as we walked through the temporary homes of the animals. In order to adopt, a person would need to be 18 years or older, and would need to bring in a valid form of ID.
Dogs have long been known to make great companions. I have heard from many people who own a dog that a dog is capable of boosting your mood and your health. But is it true? I didn’t know if it was all true until my sister surprised us with two tiny dogs. After having our dogs for several months I noticed it does change our lives in many ways. For me, my dogs changed it by showing me how to care for them. They also taught me how to understand them and how to love them even when they’re annoying and clingy. Having a dog teaches us patience, commitment, and selflessness. Caring for a dog takes a lot of responsibility and commitment. We also learn to be less focused on ourselves and be more patient, as pets can sometimes test our patience. Owning a dog can actually have a special impact in our lives.
