Reading Comprehension Test Form 5
blind — слепой
save – спасать
You know that the dog is a man’s best friend. The dog is also man’s oldest friend.
More than ten thousand years ago, dogs didn’t live with people. They were wild.
Now dogs live with people and do many good things for them. Dogs can be “eyes” for blind people. There was a dog, Bruno, who saved 40 people in the mountains. Dogs help geologists to find metals. They help police officers to catch thieves.
If you have a dog, you know how clever dogs are. You can teach your dog to do many tricks: to bring things to you, to carry your bag when you do shopping, to help you with your school-bag when you come home from school.
Dogs usually like to swim and you can teach your dog to swim. But you must remember that some dogs are afraid of water.
Where do you leave your dog, when you go on holiday? Leave him in good hands: with a neighbour or a family friend. Take your dog to these people before you go away. Sit down and talk to them. Show your dog that they are your friends and he will like them.
Take care of your dog, never let him run wild in the street. If you are good to your dog, he will be your real friend.
