Puppy Dog Pals!

Aurora is my stuffed puppy.
I’ve had her since I was four.
She has a white body, brown ears and black eyes,
and brown on her head and back.
I made her a necklace, and she likes it.
She’s an Easter dog!
I love to hug her, and she’s had lots of love.
She’s soft and cuddly, and I sleep with her.
She makes me feel happy
because she’s always happy!
I play doctor with her.
I put my name tag on one arm.
She got a shot, so I put
a bandage on her other arm
to help it heal.
But I didn’t put it on tight
because it might hurt.
I hope she feels better!

    Jhonatan! I saw your art work and got so excited! Your picture looks just like my dog and favorite boy, Clifford! He is 6 years old and a big red dog! Your art made me so happy, and I’m glad I got to write to you letting you know how much I enjoyed it. Thank you!
