A Dogs Life
By:Ann M. Martin
(This book is a sad but good book at the same time. Squirrel is a pup with her family.) I was born in a shed with Bone my older brother. My mother was afraid of Mine. Mine was a fox with her kits. One day the Merrions found Mine on their lawn. Mrs. Merrion doesn't like animals. That night she called a hunter and said,"I don't want to see anther creature on this lawn!" "sorry Mrs.Merrrion I can't come tonight, how about tomorrow?" " FINE." The next morning we all heard a big boom and we never saw Mine again. One day mother went out of the shed, Bone and I heard a big boom and mother never came back that night. Or the next or the next or the next. One day Bone left the shed,he was all I had left so I followed. Soon Bone was picked up by strangers and I found Moon (a small pup.) Later Moon was hit by a car and died. I was old and tired and hungry I was found and kept good. My new name was Addie. And I had finally found my forever home.
