So I’m in the year of the dragon so I was born in 2012 soooooo

My favorite animals are a cat and a tiger.
I was born in the Year of the Tiger in 2010
I have a pet. It's a little cat but it looks like a tiger!!!

What this story is telling us the number of the year. The story did not tell the emperor Jades age. Somehow he must be 79 or 67 or any age you think. Jade the emperor wanted to know his age. You have many favorite animals and you might like them. Most of you even have pets that you love them. Well, my favorite animal in this video is the dragon because he can fly. Hope you learned very well.

my fovarite the animal is cat and dog or rabbit

I was born on December 13th 2012 so I am born a dragon.
