I'd like to be a falcon becouse he's fast, strong has a great vision and I'd like to be able to fly as well.

definitely a BIG CITY PIGEON :D :D

I live in a rooftop here in Sao Paulo,and sometimes I spend almost an hour watching (and envying at the same time :roll: ) how free and easy seems the life of pigeons who come to rest/sleep/flirt/eat in the top of the next building.
They have food and housing everytime,everywhere they want.

You wake up in the top of the city (any building,at your choice),goes roaming around until you get hungry and stop at a hotdog stand for crumbs or anything people let fall down or throw at you.
Tired of the same city?
Pack your feathers and let's have a fly over Rio! :D
A better life than this? :D

One wonders why singers Simon and Garfunkel wanted to be a sparrow rather than a snail. Well, sparrows may eat snails.

I'd rather bear the characteristics of, or act much like, a dog. A good, honest, well-behaved dog at that, one that wouldn't bite even if provoked, one pure in heart, love-abiding and helping dog. I wouldn't care much for size, I'd care for love. I'd rejoice at the sight of my owner, but never jump upon strangers, yet I would defend and rescue my owner if I ever saw him/her in danger.

So much at stake for a dog, mainly for those who viciously impale their little precious dogs on, alas, a stake. What can dog do for all the dog-doos it does?

I would like being an eagle too because it flies higher than others birds and can see at night, what most birds can't. They are very special and are the biggest birds in the world. We must be like eagles: flies high in order to achieve what we wish. I have a good self-help book called "Voando para o sucesso" which teaches how to set free the eagle that exists in you.

Jumiut,
Your phrase isn't correct. The correct thing is: "I would like to be a bird because it has liberty to fly on/for all places. Besides, they are wonderful." If Iam incorrect, please, let me know.

I would like to be a dog, because it's the lovest animal for the human being, the most maty, and it's a very smart and intelligent animal for the owner company (it plays a lot) and for difficult missions for the police for exemple.
The best thing on a dog, is that it gives so much love for humans :D

Gustavo,

Please consider the following rewrite which will improve the composition, word selection, and clarity, then please let me know what you think about it.

"I would like to be a dog, because they; make excellent mates, are very intelligent, love to play, and perform dangerous and difficult jobs for man. But most important of all dogs give their unconditional love to their masters."

Bruniinha,

Welcome to the forums, and I would like to suggest that you use "they are" in place of "it's" in this contex. My reasons are that "it" refers to one and "they" refers to several or in this case all penguins, and unless you have picked out one penguin the plural is much better, than the singular.

Please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have, I am here to help my Brazilian friends.

I would like to be a bird, since it is capable to travel around plenty of enviroments, without impossibilities due to barriers or large distances. I would want to be like Fernão Capelo Gaivota, which is a character from a novel called by the same name of that bird, who tries to become better day after day and encourages your people to live like this way.

I'd be a dog, because I love dogs and I'm faithful as they are. I don't judge cause no one is better than anyone else.
Dogs show us everyday that be simple and humble is the biggest personal treasure that you can have.

I would like to be a monkey, because I love them! Live in forest, eat banana, their lifes must be amazing! *-*
A monkey is a primate, either an Old World monkey or a New World monkey. There are about 260 known living species of monkey. Many are arboreal, although there are species that live primarily on the ground, such as baboons. Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent. Unlike apes, monkeys usually have tails. Tailless monkeys may be called "apes", incorrectly according to modern usage; thus the tailless Barbary macaque is called the "Barbary ape".
