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.

Students could make and play a pairs or dominoes game matching French animal words to pictures. They could also explore the adjectives used to describe the pets in this clip such as 'timide', 'joli', 'tranquille', 'terrifiant' and so on. Students could match the adjective to the pet or they could have fun mixing different adjectives with nouns as part of a sentence. Students could use the vocabulary learned to describe their pet or a pet they would like.
