3SH's Wordle

3SH think Fearless could have been named something different like;
Oppey- because he does opposite things to humans
Buddy-  because he is a friend
Shortie- because he has short legs and fur
Blodgy- because of his markings
Brownie- because of his colour.

3KJ's Wordle respnse to 'Fearless' by Colin Thompson.

3 KJ believe that Fearless is not a good name for this dog because he is afraid of all the things that we are not afraid of and enjoys things that we are scared of!
