Arden's Dictation Assignment

Last week one of Arden's Language Arts activities was to dictate an essay about a pet he would like. This is the paragraph he dictated to me, with a couple of questions on my end to keep him going. I thought it was cute. :-)

I would like two dogs, one a girl, and one a boy. I want the girl one to be in the family because I like baby puppies, and they might like my stuffed animal Ruff. [I want a boy dog] because I'm a boy and all my stuffed animals are boys. [The dogs] are the same color as Ruff. Baby ones like to stay in my room. I would like making them play fetch with one of our balls. The grown-up boy one would be Bill, and the grown-up girl one will be Sally. I'd have Bill, and Charis would have Sally.
