Answer: (i) The vet and I made a dash back to the car. Bruno was still floundering about his stumps. He was also weakening rapidly. He was vomiting and breathing heavily. His flank was heaving and he had gaping mouth. The vet told everyone to hold him. He injected 10 c.c. of the antidote into his body. Not even a single drop was wasted. His condition did not change even after ten minutes. Another 10 c.c. of the antidote was injected. After ten minutes his breathing got less stertorous. Bruno could move his arms and legs a little. However, he could not stand. After thirty minutes, he got up and had a great feed. He looked at the vet and others disdainfully. He seemed to be saying, “What barium, carbonate to a big black bear like him?” He was still eating.

Answer: It was a cold winter’s day and an ant was bringing out some grains of com from her home. She had gathered the com in summer. She wanted to dry them. A grasshopper, who was very hungry, saw her and said, “I am dying of hunger. When did you get the com?” “I collected it in summer,” said the ant. “What were you doing in summer? Why did you not store some com?” The grasshopper replied, “I was too busy.”
“What were you doing?” asked the ant again. “I was singing all day,” answered the grasshopper. “If you sang all summer,” said the ant, “you can dance all winter.”

Answer: In favour of the Motion, Pets play a significant role in the life of its owner. They become the members of the family. Animals do have emotions and sentiments. They play the role of a father, a mother and a brother/sister. They need to be tackled properly and utmost care. I am of the opinion that pets give us happiness and assist us in regaining confidence in the trying circumstances. These pets need proper care and love. Those who fulfil their requirements become the most fortunate people because they get true friends. It’s very difficult to get a worthy and honest friend in this commercial world. But animals reciprocate love and take care of the entire family. I strongly say that animals should be treated amiably and amicably.
