  1. Hi Tumanako,

    Well done! You were able to find information online and write the key facts in your own words. You also remembered to include a reference at the end which meant that you were not plagiarizing.

  2. Kia ora Tumanako!! I like the way you said all about how to look after a chow chow. Next time you could make the words a different color because it is hard to see. This reminds me of my cat Mo and Lou Lou. do you have a chow chow and if you do how old is it? Noho ora mai.
