Stray dog

Last Saturday, my family and I went to Sai Kung countryside park to have a barbecue to celebrate my birthday. It was a sunny and hot day. My dad and mom love barbecue food a lot. So, we prepared many delicious foods, such as chicken wings, steak, pork chops, meatballs, sausages, bread, vegetables, marshmallows and cola.

After we arrived at the barbecue site, mom and I took out the food and put it on the table neatly. Dad set the fire at the same time. We used forks to cook the food on the fire. It was difficult for me to put the food on the fork securely. Therefore, dad helped me. It was very funny. Mom put down her handbag on the branch while barbecuing. There was a hungry stray dog walking towards us.

Suddenly, my mom screamed and shouted, “The dog took my handbag!” From my point of view, the dog misunderstood that there was food inside the handbag. After it took the bag, it ran away. We felt surprised and chased it.

The dog ran so fast, therefore we couldn’t catch it. We looked like we were playing hide and seek. A few moments later, dad had an idea. He used a piece of steak to lure it. The stray dog walked slowly towards us. We gave the steak to it and it released the handbag. It looked excited and shook its tail. We then barbecued together. Lastly, we adopted the stray dog as my birthday present.
