SOAL RECOUNT

I remember the day when I first got Sandy, my 7 year old cat. I wanted to name her because she was so cute. My older sister Michelle convinced me to name her Sandy Bucket instead; so we could call her Sandy for short. I was so attached to Sandy. Every time I saw her, I couldn’t walk away, I would just have to hug her. I even slept at the end of my bed, so I can hug her the whole night even though I was freezing.
      I always remember so many fun times with Sandy. Like when we would run and jump off the end of our pier, and Sandy would chase after us. When I was scared or mad, I would just hug Sandy and everything wouldn’t be so bad.
      But one night, right before I went to bed, my mom let her out. While I went to sleep, my mom went to call Sandy back in. But she didn’t come in, so I thought she maybe went inside my neighbor’s house. As my mom and dad went outside to look for Sandy, I became really worried. They couldn’t find her. Every ten minutes they would go out to look for her, so I went to bed hoping she was safe. I just thought she got lost and would come back tomorrow.
      The next day was the worst. My mom woke us early and told me and my sister, Michelle, that Sandy died last night. I was so sad and did not want to do anything that day. When I was going to school, I could not stop crying. At school all my friends made me cards and tried to make me stop crying, but I couldn’t. my teacher would always look at me and ask why I was crying. Even my friends was crying with me.
      When I got home I went to my room crying really loudly. I wanted  to scream. I came downstairs and hugged my mom. She said we could get another cat. Then, she was trying to find a new cat on the internet. But I did not want another cat. I want Sandy. She never found one that looked like Sandy or at the same age or even in the same kind.
      That night I slept with my mom and we prayed for Sandy. I kept thinking she was a ghost at the end of the bed, so I stayed closed to my mom. The next day I figured out that if Sandy was a ghost, she would not scare me or haunt me. She would be waiting for me to play with her.
      I still think about Sandy every day and wish she could come back.

TESSIE
We were moving house and dad asked me to help him sort out all the boxes in the storeroom. I hadn't been in the storeroom for aged and wondered what we would find. One wall was line with shelves, stacked with boxes almost to the ceiling there were many other wrapped up objects of different shafts and size Dad open the boxes and rummaged through them. I moved over to a wooden box and was just about to lift the lid when it toppled over. Everything fell out into a heap.
Be careful!' shouted dad, There may be something fragile in there
Then I saw it! My heart began to pound and my knees began to shake. It was a rubber ring. It had belonged to my beloved dog. Tessie. She died two years ago.
I was only four when we got Tessie. I chose her from among other puppies. She was my best friend. Although she had a basket in the kitchen she would creep up to my room at night and sleep in the bottom of the bed. If I was cold she would snuggle up next to me.
Tessie could do anything. She could beg and sit and shake a paw. I taught her to fetch things. One Christmas I bought her a rubber ring I wrapped it up in shiny paper and place it under Christmas tree. She played with it everyday. Tessie would wait at the front door when she knew it was time for me to come home from school. She would howl the panting with the rubber ring in front of her If didn't play, she would howl and wouldn't stop until I did. In the weekend we would take the ring to ihe playground and play for hours and hours until neither of us could run anymore.
Then one day Tessie feIl ill. She didnt wait for me by the front door anymore and she didn't want to play with the ring I tried to encourage her, "Come on, Tessie. Come and play. :
Seemed out of breath She couldn’t walk very well and she wasn't eating properly. Mum and I took her to the vet. The vet shook her head and told us that Tessie was really sick
There,nothing they can do for her, 'mum whispered to me.
I went to the room where Tessie was waiting and said my goodbyes  I felt her warm fur for the last time on my face and then I ran out side and cried. . . .
What's the matter, son?' asked Dad. He put an arm around my shoulder. We all miss her, 'said Dad sadly, 'She was a good dog, a really good dog. I nodded and put the ring hack in the box

A Visit to a Wildlife Park
                   
                    I recently visited Sydney with my parents. We visited many interesting places. The one I enjoyed best was the Wildlife Park.
                    The Wildlife Park has a lot different Australian animals and birds. There are over 600 animals, including kangaroos, wallabies, koala and crocodiles. They are kept in their natural surroundings. I much preferred the Wildlife Park to a zoo where a lot of animals are in cages.
                    We were able to walk along the kangaroos and wallabies. We were even allowed to touch them and to feed them. It was very exciting to be very so close to them
We saw koala bears. They looked very cuddly. I got my photograph taken with one of them. It is a wonderful souvenir of my holiday in Sydney.
                    We also went to see the crocodiles. The Wildlife Park has a lot of fresh-, water and salt-water crocodiles. Some of them were very big and scary with, huge teeth. I did not get very close to them.
