(Passage)

Question: Write a short description of a dog. First, decide whether you want to describe a fancy, pedigreed dog or a scruffy mutt. Then capture the dog by using strong diction. Don't explain that the dog is fancy or scruffy. Instead, use perfect words to create a picture of the dog for the reader. Use Wilde's passage as a model.
