Tell us a funny tale about your pet
Levi taught a Jack Russell how to swim. Saw this dog on a walk, said the dog didn't like water, so Levi jumped in and swam around. The Jack Russell stood on the bank, yapping at him. Levi got out, picked up the Jack Russell by the neck, and took it swimming!
If you could be any pet, what would you be and why?
Dog – because Levi has an easy life and gets lots of love and attention.
