It's a Dog's Life.

Extracts from this document...


It's a Dog's Life After waiting all day, he finally arrived. I heard the slow purring of his motorbike as he cruised down the driveway. Slowly, the door opened and I could smell the pleasant aroma of petrol mixed with fresh air blow through the door as I ran towards it. The door shut.
