How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

My (female) dog Roxy has tons of energy to spare, so when the time comes to give her a good bath, better to be ready for the fight! It's not so much that she doesn't enjoy it, but rather that she enjoys it too much!

She also loves lapping the water straight from the shower head just as I desperately try and rinse her. I can't wait for spring so that we can do this outside in the garden. It will be so much more comfortable for the both of us!
