Each day as I return from school I am greeted by my pet dog Pluto. His big brown eyes light up with joy. He barks excitedly as he takes the strap of my water bottle in his mouth and runs in to inform mother that I have come.
Pluto is a brown Labrador. My father gifted him to me on my birthday. He loves to dig and bury bones in the garden. True to his breed-The Retriever, he later takes it out and eats it. He is very faithful. No outsider can enter our house. He barks so loudly that we all know there is someone at the gate. He doesn't bite but his huge size scares people. When any of us are ill he sits at our bed side looking sad.
Most part of the day he sleeps and remains awake at night to guard the house. He makes a good watchdog. The water pond in our garden is his favorite playing spot. He jumps in whenever he feels hot and plays in the water. My mother gets very angry with him. She now has extra work to dry and brush him. My parents regularly take him to the vet to have him de-wormed once in three months.
He is also given vaccinations and anti-rabies injections. We regularly remove all parasites and keep him clean to remain healthy. After all the love and the joy he gives us, this is the least we can do for him. Pluto loves to eat fruits like apples and bananas. He is an unusual dog.
My mother makes him a soup with green vegetables, chicken and rice every day. He loves milk and special dog biscuits for breakfast. Some days he eats egg too. He is my best buddy, and makes me laugh all the time. I love my pet and he will remain my best friend forever.
