E. In this exercise, you respond the questions and traslate to spanish.
The lost Dog
Paul: Hey, Vincent, I heard your dog finally turned up

Vincent: Yeah, he had been missing for three days. We had taken him to a dog show on Saturday. My
daughter was really excited; she had been training the dog for weeks, and she felt she had a good chance to
win. Unfortunately, someone had left the gate open in the show area, and before anyone knew what had
happened, the dog had run off.
Paul: Gee, thats terrible, What did you then?
Vincent: Well, I didnt really know what to do; that was the first time the dog had gotten lost. We talked to
different people in the neighborhood, but nobody had seen him. My daughter was really upset she had had
the dog for a long time.
Paul: So how did you get him back?
Vincent: I used my computer to make some posters that said, reward for missing Dog By five o clock, I
had finished printing them, and we put them up all over town. We didnt hear anything for a couple of days,
but then we got a call. It seems that a man had found the dog in his yard. Luckily for us, he had seen the
posters before, and he gave us a call. He gave me the address of a restaurant near his house, and I drove
there to pick the dog up. When I got to his neighborhood, I realized that I had gotten lost. Apparently, Id
written down the wrong street name, and I spent almost and hour trying to find the place. I was afraid that
the man had gotten tired and left, but fortunately, he was still there when I arrived. Hed been waiting for
more than an hour, but he was very nice about it; he didnt even accept the reward money.
Paul: Well, I bet your daughter was happy to see the dog again.
Vincent:Oh, she was ecstatic. And the dog was in pretty good shape, too. He needed a bath, but other than,
he was fine.
