My Dream Pet

1. If I could choose any animal in the world for a pet, I would pick an elephant. An elephant is enormous. I could ride it down Main street, and people would get out of our way. They would know somone important and powerful was coming in their direction.

2. At home, my elephant could help with my chores. Me, my brother, and my sister always argue about our chores. A pet elephant could pick up my clothes, books, and toys with its trunk. It could even pick up my bed and shake it out!

3. An elephant could also help me earn some extra spending money. An elephant can squirt water from its trunk. Some of my neighbors have gardens growing on hills. Them need help with that job. My elephant could water those hard to reach places for my neighbors. Don’t you think they would pay big money for that kind of help? I was knowing Mrs. Jones will want that kind of service!

4. Finally, I would like an elephant for a pet because no one else I know has one. I would be the only kid in town with a pet elephant!
