Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron, and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hi, Emma! I didn’t know you had a dog.
Actually, this is my elder sister’s dog. His name is Coco and I’m his pet
sitter for today. I’m here to take him for a walk.
Ah… He’s so cute! Coco is such a well-behaved dog.
He is! My sister asked me to walk Coco in the morning and afternoon for
at least 30 minutes at a time.
Does she walk her dog every day?
She does this at least five times a week. But if she’s busy, she’ll ask
either me or my younger brother to take Coco to the park.
And you get to exercise too.
Coco looks happy and healthy. I’m sure your sister is a responsible pet owner.
