I LOVE SKATING

���������������������������������������������� ��
Hello, I�m Rusty, the skater.
I�m a special dog as you can see. And� Maria�is my�owner. She is very young. She is only six years old. She has got black hair, brown eyes and a smiley face. She always carries with her a doll called Martha.
When her parents are out, I�m the one who takes care of her. She loves to play hide and seek all the time. But I prefer skating of course.
I skate with all my buddies of the neighbourhood and I am the best one. Sometimes Maria goes with me but she gets tired easily so I have to take her back home.
I usually wake up early to take her to the kindergarten at 8 0�clock. Then I come back home and have a nice breakfast: lots of bones. After that I say good bye to Maria�s parents: Jo�o and Sara. Jo�o is a doctor and Sara is journalist. He works for the local hospital here in S.jo�o, and Sara works for the local newspaper.
They love me very much and that�s why I am responsible for Maria when they go out to the cinema.
During the day I do some housechores: dusting, washing, and so on�..
In the afternoon, I go for a walk with my girlfriend Patty. She lives two blocks away from me. We sometimes go to the nearest park and have fun swimming or running.
At about 5 0�clock we come back home. But first I go to Maria�s kindergarten and take her back home. Her mother is usual at home and that time and they chat a bit. Then I leave Patty home.
Finally I go skating for about three hours. I practice every day because during weekends we have competitions all over the country.
