Gail Mirabeila is an American woman who likes dogs very much. Because of the love for dogs, she becomes a dog trainer in a circus. When she was a child, Gaff often trained her dogs to do tricks for fun. At the age of ten, she did her first dog Show. By now; she has done her job for about 14 years. For Gail, how long it takes her to train a dog well depends on the dog itself. Gail has thirteen dogs in the circus. To train them better, she tried to make friends with each one. And Gail spent lots of time on it. Now it seems that all her dogs consider Gail as their best friend: They get on well with Gail very much. "Dogs can start to perform the big tricks after they are two years old, As practice, I made my dogs perform in some small shows when they were as young as eight months old. At that time, they started to get used to performing before the people around." Gall said. "When the dogs and I travel to different places to perform, l can make friends with lots of people and see beautiful sights. However, nothing is more wonderful than the life in the circus, because I can stay with my dogs all the time," Gail also said proudly. (15. T 16. F 17:T 18. T 19. F 20. T) D. Dinner in the Sky Are you afraid of height? If yes, we are sorry to tell you that you will miss a wonderful dinner in the sky. Dinner in the sky can of course make an experience that it is hard for your friends to forget. In fact, the idea of Dinner in the Sky is developed by a Belgian company. The dinner is hosted at a table floating at a height of 50 metres. A team of professionals help make the table safe in the air. Of course, dinner is not the only choice. Breakfast in the sky, lunch in the sky, meeting in the sky. Just whatever you wafer. What's more, Dinner in the Sky can take place anywhere. It has been operated in more than 15 countries If there is an open ground of 500 m2, get ready to take action. You may wonder whether it is safe to have dinner in the sky. But don't worry about that. Dinner in the Sky is a completely safe way to enjoy life. The Belgian company provides this special service according to safety. It is designed and examined strictly according to the International Safety Standard. That is probably the reason why it is still flying in the sky. So are you getting interested? If you want to have a special memory, try Dinner in the Sky.
