1) Put a word that means to same as the bolded word from the
Thesaurus in the space.
I knelt beside/ next to Diggity. He made no effort/ mental energy to get up. His neck was a pulpy mass/large amount of blood, and his rib cage rose and fell unevenly/ not equally. Dad scooped/ grabbed him into his arms and staggered/ walked unsteadily up the beach. Mum and Lucy were already in the car with the hatch/ boot up and engine running. The vet said Diggity had lost heaps/ lots of blood. The outlook/ future wasn’t good. When the phone rang/ was ringing later that evening, nobody was in a hurry to answer/ reply to it. But Diggity did survive.
