Speaking

Last Saturday, I went to hospital because I have booking a health check for my dog. My dog is a bichon, she’s 7 years old so she has a bad temper. She usually been angry at night about turn to 12 o’clock. I guess she wants the environment to be very quiet so any sound will trigger her. She doesn’t like grooming, she likes eat everything. When I walk her, I should be very careful, she will catch any chance to eat something she could eat, even the shits. She doesn’t like other dogs, she will bark at them. She likes people, every people, especially beautiful people. If you walk inside her sight, then she will be very happy and wiggle her tail.
