Anzac Day - by Aleenah

Anzac Day
ANZAC day was a memorable day for the people who died as anzacs in World War l. Every 25th of April we remember those who sacrificed their lives for peace. 

The Battle of Chunuk Bair
At Gallipoli, Peninsula in 1915, a battle came upon this world. A lot of people risked their lives in this battle, most died. The reason why World War l happened, was because the British Empire wanted to capture the Dardanelles and get an entrance to the Bosphorus and the Black Sea.  

Turkey declined the Empire and their desires and from that moment on the battle started. I don’t know who declared it but this war happened at Gallipoli, Peninsula. While fighting, Turkey got possession of Gallipoli. 




How We Celebrate ANZAC Day Now
ANZAC day is a very important occasion for Australians and New Zealanders as it reminds them of the people who sacrificed their lives for their country. In Australia, ANZAC day is celebrated in dawn. We also use poppies in remembrance for the people who died in this war because it was there when the anzacs died. People like us also do this as parade. 

The Ending
A lot happened in this war but we are now glad that it is finally done. The Gallipoli campaign mentioned that 87,000 Turks died, 44,000 men from France and so did the British Empire, with Australians and 2,777 New Zealanders also died. 

Remembering the fallen brave ANZACS who lost their lives in Gallipoli, ANZAC Day continues to be commemorated every 25th of April. It remains an important part of who we are.

Common Health Problems
Cancer is one of the worst thing that can happen to a golden retriever. The most common ones are hemangiosarcoma, lymphosarcoma,  mast cell tumors and osteosarcoma. These are very bad illnesses for Golden Retrievers. The life of the Golden retriever only last to 11 up to 12 years. Pets have to be taken to the vets every year. There is another common health problem for golden retrievers so if they have a puppy, let them be examined by OFA or PennHIP for hip disease.
