Facts about dogs! (Some fun at the end!).

1. Husky's.
Huskies are beautiful dogs. They look like wolves, and have thick, soft coats, that make them infinitely cuddly. They have piercing eyes, and wonderful masks, that give them a roguish and unique look. Huskies can make very good family pets. If properly trained, they can be very good with people, children, and other dogs. Indeed, Huskies are commonly known for their friendliness toward people. Although they may look like fierce wolves, they have the heart of Casanova. Mostly Huskies want to do, is greet everyone and give them licks. However, many people have trouble with this breed, and many Huskies get surrendered every year. 

But here are some annoying things about huskies.
1. They howl when your watching TV.
2. They are very athletic so you will have take them out for a play or a walk, 
E V E R Y  S I N G L E   D A Y! I mean can you believe that!??
3. Sometimes you need to make sure if you are going to have some guests coming over. You need to make sure they like dogs. Or your husky will lick their face the whole time or even sit on their lap, OR make them play with them. 
But if your looking for an athletic dog, These little fur balls might be the best choice! 



2. Pugs.
WARNING! PUGS ARE LAZY DOGS. SO IF YOUR LOOKING FOR AN ATHLETIC DOG. PUGS AREN'T JUST RIGHT.

You need to look after pugs more then any other dogs. Pugs live up to 12 to 15 years if well cared for. Pugs are the most oldest dog breeds in the world. They say
that there's records tracing back in the 700 BCE in china. Pugs were kept and breed for royalty.

Weighing in roughly from 13 to 30 pounds these natural lab dogs are a great fit for a family that lives in a small house. Pugs are VERY loyal and they follow their owner around like a shadow. With their strong build, pugs make perfect playmates for children like you, you, you, and you, and so on.


Pugs have a clown like personality. Their very smart but they are stubborn so you have to be really patient when your training them. Pugs sleep on average for 14 HOURS A DAY!!! They only need modern exercise because they tier easily. So that makes them well suited for apartment living, And also it makes them great companion animals for the elderly. Pugs are very cute and cuddly as well!


Dogs like pugs who have flat faces, are called Brachycephalic, that means their mussels or noses are squashed in, and that makes it harder for them to breath. Since pugs already have a hard time breathing as it is, do not expose them to smoke. Pugs are very vocal breeds, and their short mushed faces resolved in some hilarious sounds. Did you know that a group of pugs is called a..... GRUMBLE! Some pugs can recognize images and videos on the TV, or computer! Many dogs can't. Pugs get VERY VERY VERY tired if you go on long walks, so you might have to CARRY them back home! LOL!




3. The Collie.
  • Along with a great personality, Collies are also extremely good-looking which makes the breed quite popular.
  • There are a number of different types of Collies including Smooth Collies, Rough Collies, Bearded Collies, Border Collies and Shetland Sheepdogs (originally known as the Shetland Collie).
  • An interesting fact about Collies is that they originated in Scotland approximately three hundred and fifty years ago.  Back then they were mostly used for herding animals.  Today they are still used by some farmers for herding as well as being beloved household pets.
  • We know that Collies make great herding dogs.  However, along with this they are also sometimes used as tracking and search and rescue dogs.
  • A great fact about Collies is that they are one of the most intelligent dog breeds.  This makes them a lot easier to train.
  • Collies love attention from their owners and love being around people.  Therefore, before you add a Collie to your family, you firstly need to make sure you will have enough time to spend with them.
  • Another great fact about Collies is that they have plenty of energy!  Therefore, they need to be exercised daily.  Also, because of this boundless energy Collies don’t do well living in apartments.  They a really need a home with a big backyard so they can run around.
  • One of the fun facts about Collies is that because of their boundless energy, they do really well in agility competitions.             Theses are very beautiful.

4. Shih Tzu
If you're looking for a small dog that doesn't yap much, the Shih Tzu could fill the bill. This ancient breed from China were once the pets of emperors and empresses, but today they're perfectly happy in an apartment or suburban home, as long as you're there.


Size


By the age of one year, the Shih Tzu attains his full growth. According to the American Kennel Club, the height at the withers ideally ranges between 9 to 10.5 inches, but over 8 inches and less than 11 inches is acceptable. Grown dogs weigh between 9 to 16 pounds, with males larger than females.

Coat


Shih Tzus are famous for their luxurious coats. On the flip side, don't get a Shih Tzu if you don't like grooming or bathing your dog or taking him for grooming. It's part of the deal with this breed. He requires regular, possibly daily brushing to keep his coat free from mats, and frequent bathing. Perhaps the most difficult stage occurs when the puppy coat changes into an adult coat, at about 10 months to a year. At this stage, you must brush his coat thoroughly every day, as it mats easily during the transition.

History

The AKC states that the earliest evidence of the Shih Tzu is from 624 CE. Shih Tzu means "lion" in Chinese, and the breed is still known as the lion dog. They were favorite pets of the Ming Dynasty, but after China's communist revolution breeding virtually ceased. Your Shih Tzu descends from one of 14 dogs imported to England, where a breeding program began in the 1930s. The Shih Tzu came to the United States after World War II, brought home by returning soldiers.
Health
While an overall healthy breed, Shih Tzus are subject to some hereditary ailments. As with many small dogs, dental problems may arise, as it's hard for the mature canine's 42 teeth to fit properly in such a little mouth. Luxating patellas—unstable kneecaps—often occur and may require surgery in serious cases. Shih Tzus are prone to entropion, an eye condition in which eyelids roll inward, possibly causing corneal ulcers and blindness. Among the most serious diseases affecting the breed is renal dysplasia, in which the kidneys don't develop properly. Healthy Shih Tzus can live 15 years or more. He can serve as your best friend for a long time.

Temperament

The Shih Tzu was not bred to hunt, guard, herd or kill rodents. This aristocratic little dog descends from a long line of companion canines. That means his primary interest in life, other than eating, is being with you. Shih Tzus generally possess good temperaments, getting along well with other members of the family and other pets. Because they are small, they do best with older children, as younger kids may play too rough with them. Unlike some other small breeds, Shih Tzus aren't usually high-strung or nervous.
And they are ADORABLE!!!

Gretel and Hansel!

I have been working with Mr M. Our writing was about retell. We had to pick a story we would like to retell, And I picked Hansel and Gretel. But I did the other way around. Now its called Gretel and Hansel. I hope you enjoy my story.

GRETEL AND HANSEL!
There once lived a poor woodcutter in the middle of the woods, with his mean step wife and his children. Although he did know that his step wife is witch.


She had killed his first wife, who was beautiful, kind, and she always tries to feed her husband and her children. But that ugly witch killed her, because she was jealous of her beauty.


The witch always says to herself “Oh why did I marry a stupid, old and poor woodcutter. They always run out of food. One night gretel heard her parents fighting. She puts her ear to the hole in the wall where she can hear and see, everything that is going on in her parents room.


GRETEL
I hear mum and  dad fighting in their room.  “Mother wants to leave us in the woods, and that’s alone”!!!! I tell my lazy brother, hansel. He is always sleeping. He doesn’t care about anything. A fly was fluttering over his mouth. I get my slingshot, and hit the fly with my rock. It falls into his mouth. “GULP”! He swallows it. “Uh uh uh”! What!?  I tell him what Mother is going to do to us.


HANSEL
I was shocked when I heard what she said. I said. ”But I don’t care because I WANT to be in the woods exploring the nature”. “oh”! said Gretel. “SO DO YOU WANT STARVE IN THE WOODS, EAT SLUGS AND SNAILS, MAKE WEAPONS TO HUNT RABBITS AND DEERS, AND LIVE THERE UNTIL WE TURN 991 AND DIE”!!!!! She shouts at me like she is my own mother. But I do not care a single bit. Not even a piece of crumb.


GRETEL
What kind of brother is he. A PIG? “BANG BANG’!!!! someone knocks on our bedroom door. (Really hard if i say so myself)!
“HURRY UP YOU STUPID CHILDREN”!!! yelled mother. (MEAN UGLY STUPID STEP MOTHER I SHOULD SAY)! “HURRY UP AND GET READY”! WE NEED TO GO AND HAVE A PICNIC IN THE WOODS”! “Right now’?! I ask. “At 9pm”?!?!?! “OH JUST HURRY UP”! Says mother. She leaves the room by banging the door really REALLY HARD! “BANG”!!! So me and hansel get ready. NOT! We were already dressed and we looked perfect!


HANSEL
We walk out our bedroom door, and have a  race up to the front door of our little cottage. Mother and father were waiting for us. For some reason father looked really sad. And do I care? NO! “Let’s go”! I shout. We slowly walked through the darkness. We were even further in the woods then usual. Now I’m even more excited.
GRETEL
Now i’m very nervous. “STAY HERE WHILE WE GO PICK SOME APPLES’! says mother. “STAY HERE OR YOU WILL GET LOST”!
But suddenly a wolf comes out of nowhere. But for some reason he started ATTACKING OUR STEP MOThER!  “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”!!!!!!! Screams mother, and when I say scream I mean SCRRRRRREEEEEEAAAAMMMMMM!  Me and hansel hug our father. Until…………. MOTHER DIES!!!! Wait why should I say mother? I mean witch! HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! And it doesn’t mean if I laugh I’m a witch too! The wolf looks at us. NOW I AM TERRIFIED! But the wolf didn’t attack us, instead he started to TALK!!???? “NOW U WILL NOT NEED TO SUFFER BEING TORTURED BY THAT WITCH”! I HAVE BEEN SENT FROM HEAVEN”! YOUR MOTHER SENT ME TO SAVE YOU”! NOW I SHALL LEAVE”! NO NEED TO THANK ME”! LIVE YOUR LIFE AND BE A NORMAL PERSON”! AND HERE IS SOME MONEY SO YOU CAN BUY FOOD”!


HANSEL
I WAS SHOCKED! I almost started to cry. WE WERE SO HAPPY NOW WE CAN LIVE HAPPILY! THANK YOU MUMMY! DADDY STARTED TO CRY!  


GRETEL
I was so happy now we will be happy forever!
