My name is Vinh. I really love pet. My favorite pet is dog. I used to have a dog when I was a child. He like my family member and we usually take a walk together.
In my country, Dog, Cat or another animal is like our friends but many people still eat dog meat. This thing is really bad. So I hope one day this thing will change in my country.

I don't like animals as pet, but I love to play with them. Spending some time with them makes your fresh. Cats, baby goats and chicks really freshen your mind.

Oh my gosh!!! Elementary Series is back! I didn't know that you are here with a new series. I love to hear this series. Love to hear the conversion over and over again. I enjoy listening it. I'm in now.

Hello Ather9,

Series 4 was released a couple of summers ago and I'm glad you've discovered it and are enjoying it. Just so you know, we are currently working on Series 5. We still don't know when we'll be able to release it, but it will certainly be months from now (or longer), but I wanted to let you know to look for it in the future. Or if you're subscribed to our newsletter, we will certainly announce it there.

All the best,
