Dog Days are Over
My mom always says that if you keep on feeding an animal, it will keep on coming around and eventually you can make it your pet. After many failed attempts at making the neighborhood ducks my pets, I gave up. Instead, I became invested in the lives of Wilbur the pig and Marley the dog. So, with that in mind, I decided to write on my three favorite books that are centralized around animals.
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
I got my first pet when I turned 12. His name was Beans and he was a cat. Before him, I wasn’t allowed to have pets, so the animals in my favorite books became my “pets” for all intents and purposes. I’m so glad I got to care for so many dogs, cats, and even the occasional pig all because of books.
Until next week, this is me signing off!
