The Worst Week of My Life

The worst week of my life was when my dog died.

It was such an beautiful and sweet animal. My parents bought him for me when I was five years old. His name was Bobby. He died two years ago. He was sick and the only thing that he did was sleeping. And when he died I couldn’t sleep for a week. I missed him.

I couldn’t eat that whole week. I’ve still got his pictures. That same week I went to the shopping centre with my friends and I was still a bit tired. We went together to an animal shop and my friends bought a new dog for me. We called him Tommy. He looked the same as Bobby, but Tommy was younger. I often think about Bobby, but I’m getting over it.
