Describe your favourite animal.You should say:
- what kind of animal it is
- describe it briefly
- why you like this animal
- and describe why it is your favourite animal.
To begin with, I would like to highlight the fact that I am an animal lover and love them regardless of the species or genera they belong to. However, talking about the favourite animal that is exceptionally close to my heart is a dog. I have been fond of dogs right from childhood. Although I don’t understand the esoteric and abstruse bond I share with dogs, one thing that I am very certain about is that I am a complete dog-lover, so much so that I have five breeds of dogs, including an Alsatian, a Pomeranian, a Lhasa Apso, a Tibetan Mastiff and a Dachshund. Out of them, if I were to pick one as my favourite one, I’ll go with my Alsatian named Kaoru.
Kaoru is an extremely beautiful two-years old dog and is jaw-droppingly gorgeous with his thick coat and wide expressive eyes. I got him back when I went to a kennel to get an Alsatian for myself and since then, I fell in love with Kaoru right at first sight. He is mirthful, gleeful and above all, extremely intelligent and active. Never does a day pass by when Kaoru would have shown any reluctance to go out for a walk or to get his training done for the day. This is why I am enamoured by this sweet creature.
Although all my other dogs are superbly congenial and blithe, at times, they get very tempestuous and obstinate to tame them down. Kaoru, on the other hand, acts as a guardian of all my other dogs and often teams up with me in disciplining all of them. At times, it feels as though I got a human pal in the form of a dog as I feel he is too wise to be a dog.
Eg.: The incident that happened yesterday was very esoteric.
Meaning: hard to understand
Eg.: I did not understand the abstruse context of their secret conversation.
Eg.: Children are very mirthful if they are treated the right way.
Meaning: to show a feeling of resistance in doing something
Eg.: We could easily sense the reluctance in their behaviour to go to school.
Meaning: enchanted; fascinated
Eg.: Mrs. Riyaz was enamoured by the grandness of the hall.
Part 3 Questions
What do you think of the poaching of some precious animals such as pandas?
Poaching of animals and causing harm to their existence is extremely deleterious to the diversity and ecological balance of the Earth and would drive such animals to go beyond the threshold of extinction.
What should we do to protect endangered animals?
The first step toward safeguarding endangered animals should be getting aware of the fact that certain animals are indeed endangered, and a sword of extinction is hovering over their heads. Secondly, there should be enough education and awareness programs in the wake of protecting animals. Lastly, there should be an implementation of a stringent and uncompromising set of rules against poaching animals or threatening them.
Do you support doing experiments on animals?
Well, to keep it laconic, I would say no, I do not support experiments on animals. However, I do understand that, at times, it becomes imperative to carry out experiments on animals due to certain essential scientific experiments. That said, we should always find a way to circumvent the inclusion of animals to get our experiments on, perhaps by the use of technology.
Why do some people refuse to eat animals?
There could be various reasons that people don’t eat meat. For example, some might not have it due to the religion they practice, while some might not consume meat due to the lifestyle that they have chosen for themselves. Also, some don’t eat it as they feel it is morally wrong.
What would happen when some species disappear on earth?
It would be a disaster! Not only would it cause a catastrophe to the diversity of the species found on Earth, but also it would cause a huge disbalance and turbulence in the ecological balance. Consequently, it would affect the food chain as well as sundry natural phenomena.
Eg.: This pesticide has a deleterious effect on crops.
Meaning: to protect
Eg.: One should always try my level best to safeguard one’s set of beliefs.
Eg.: These stringent ways of living would rip off the essence of freedom.
Eg. It is imperative that you raise your voice against the wrong.
Eg.: There was major turbulence in the town hall last Monday.
