1.______________________________

Gianna likes hiking and being outdoors. She always goes on long walks with her dog, Dr. Strangelove. Dr. Strangelove is a very long name for a dog, and that’s why everyone calls him Doc. Gianna found him on the street one foggy night two years ago, and took him home.
