Dino's surgery

Dino's surgery
Matthew and Missy took Dino, our class pet home and grandma fix him up.

In the morning Mummy took Dino in the car and he slept in the car.  After 3 o’clock we went swimming, after we had tea we went to Grandma’s and Dino had his surgery.  Dino recovered well from surgery and his arm is now good as new.  Thanks Grandma!

Now Dino is able to wave and play again!

The   Cool   Cheetah
The cheetah is the fastest animal in the world. He has sharp teeth. His eyes are amazing eyes and he has pointed ears. He has spots on his body and long black tear eye lines. He has a spotted slender body and has very sharp claws. My cheetah has babies. Babies are called cubs. They are very cute. I love them so much.
