Spud is keen to have a cuddly new pet but Farley isn't happy to be considered for the role. He doesn't think of himself as a dog. With the help of Soda's translating cap, the friends consider the various merits of a bird, a tortoise, a hamster, a dog and a cat. Farley's unconventional approach to the pet search convinces Spud that maybe she needs to think about the situation more. The humorous animation introduces some French vocabulary to beginners.
The teacher could use this clip to reinforce basic introductions (hello, my name is...), pet vocabulary (bird, dog, cat, hamster, tortoise) and numbers 1 - 5. Adjectives are introduced (lively, quiet, timid, fierce, pretty, strong, big, small, terrifying). The pupils could have fun mixing different adjectives with nouns as part of a sentence.
