Hi, you can ignore me if I'm not helpful, but I like to try! Here are some phrases we would use in English that might help:|
"sprawled on the ground" - A+! That's a very good descriptive phrase that would be perfect, I think, for this: 懒洋洋的趴 It's common yet gives a good image in the mind.
For the dog, say 'he' or 'she', not 'it', unless it's a strange or mean dog you don't know.
If the score is the same for each player in a game, we would say "it's a tie", and to play a little bit more to see who wins would be the "tie-breaker".
"Just as we were about to break the tie"
"during the tie-breaker"
***I've see it with a hyphen, and as one word (tiebreaker).
These are all good:
"sat by my side"
"sat beside me"
"sat alongside me"
"Snowball was sprawled out on the ground alongside me"
STARTLED (another good word!)
"Startled by Snowball's barks, she dropped the ball"
"The ball fell from her hand when the dog barked"
(I'm not sure if that's the right meaning, my Chinese is not that good)
"Snowball held the ball in his (or her) mouth"
"Just as we were about to break the tie, Snowball barked. Startled, Jane (or the player's name) dropped the ball, and Snowball picked it up in his mouth.
Sorry if I'm wrong or you don't need help anymore!
(I had fun anyway)
