Clothes for animals - level 3

Clothes for animals - level 3

Now, there’s nothing we love more than really cute pets all dressed up. And in Sochi, pet owners are celebrating the Winter Olympics by dressing up their animals in outfits, adorned in the colours and distinctive designs of the games.

At this Madagascar pet shop in central Sochi, business is booming. Shop employee Daria says the merchandise has been flying off the shelves for two months.

“Right now, the Olympics are going on in Sochi, and that’s why we could say everyone wants to be in the trend. Right now, volunteers and participants in the games and simple residents of the resort are wearing Bosco. So, as a pet store, we would also like to be part of the Olympics, and we are selling Bosco suits. The same for dogs and cats.”

However, it’s not cheap dressing up your pet in these posh outfits. Shirts will cost you around £13, while a snowsuit will set you back around £30.

Difficult words: adorn (make more beautiful), distinctive (easy to recognise), merchandise (products), flying off the shelves (selling a lot of things quickly), posh (expensive).
