One day on the way home from school. Everything looked the same except I couldn’t see my dog even outside in the backyard. My dog was small and hard to find but I had looked everywhere even in the toilet. He was nowhere to be seen. I look around the backyard for the hundredth time and I hear barking. I start to yell, “Jeff come here, Jeff”. I could see him anywhere and I look up to the clouds and wonder where he could be. Suddenly I see him standing on the roof next the gargoyle but how did he get up there.

Donald trump once said “I will build a wall and make America great again.” 

But what if I was in charge I would make sure there would be no school, no homework or guns without a licence.

If I was in charge I would sack who ever I want.

It would be real fun .

I would get heaps of pets like pugs, dogs and ducks.

That would be the life, if only I was in charge instead of doing homework right now for all you to read.

 

Ow so cute!
