I am a proud but slightly regretful owner of a Chihuahua. At the age of eight I saw an episode of “That’s So Raven” that featured a little, white, long haired Chihuahua and I died. It was the cutest little dog and I had to have one. I needed one. My parents being the coolest parents around gave in to my begging when a family member just happened to have a litter of white, long-haired, Chihuahua puppies.
Personal Response: I thought this was a good book and it got right to the point. I liked how the author made Lucas 's family a part of the fire department. It gave it an inside look on how the firefighters were affected. I really liked that there were facts about the real September 11th at the very end of the book. Plot: Lucas was on his way to see Uncle Benny to talk to him about football.
The assertion that people judge others based on their race and religion is unfortunately very true and is seen throughout the book. Once Hurricane Katrina hits, Kathy and the children flee while Zeitoun stays behind to make sure everything stays safe. After a couple of days of venturing the city, while on the phone with Kathy, Zeitoun says, “I feel like I’m supposed to be here. [...] It’s God 's will” (124). Zeitoun feels this way because of all of the people and dogs he has saved.

Ponte mentions a story when a dog named King saved the entire family of a fire. King detected the fire and alerted his family; he did not leave until everyone was safe and out of the house.

Dogs are very special creatures with special abilities, we see this in law enforcement through their K9 units and also with therapeutic dogs for those in need. Throughout American history, we have believed that dogs are man’s best friend and vice versa. Our dogs dependent on us to care of and provide for them. Therefore we must try our best to return home safely after a night of drinking. As a dog owner, I can truly say that I believe in this phrase with all my heart.
Five seconds after Jamie pulled him out of the Toyota Tameri, the vehicle exploded and became a fiery inferno. Jamie said, "As I 'm getting him out, I said, 'You 've got to help me get you out because I don 't want to have to leave you. ' I said, 'You 've angels around you.

Gray, the vet technicians, and I all gathered around the fluorescent light to view X-ray, examining the placement of the corn cobs in the animal’s intestinal tract. The various doctors and technicians discussed the methods in which they could remove the corn cobs without extensive surgery and recovery time for the young dog. After minutes of deliberation the group settled on a minimally invasive surgery and got to work. Hours later, we were able to send the dog home with his owner, happy and healthy. As I walked out of the clinic, a smile spread across my face, grateful to have witnessed hard work pay off for that dog.
And even if the "Black Dog" will never completely leave, patience, sense of humor, of life with wisdom, discipline can control even the dirtiest dog (he will be obedient and will not pose any danger). September 10th designed to draw in a large number of suicides and to find ways to prevent them. Over the years, England committed suicide about 1,000 people.
