Liz Duffy Adams, the playwright, wrote the play and relayed her blueprints, the script, to directors Mandy Fox and Joe Kopyt, who worked with designers to create and present a world of their own imagination based on Adams ' script.

An Anonymous author stated, “Pit bulls are beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of man without the vices.” (Anonymous) As a Pit bull proprietor, I feel that Pit bulls are regularly misconstrued creatures. In actuality, any creature, pit bull or even a Chihuahua can be pitiless or tender. Also, love and minding wins out with creatures simply as it does with people. Moreover, fondness is the thing that makes a decent or terrible puppy and not their sort of breed or hereditary cosmetics.

It wasn’t a special kind of dog, but it wanted to eat the ice-cream cone you were eating.Henry Huggins, written by Beverly Clearly, is a exciting story of Henry getting a dog which he met on a street, on his way going home. This story of getting a great dog is important to our generation of young children because it teaches the values of friendship and love between a boy and his dog, even though they make some trouble together. I personally admire the character of Henry and Ribsy and feel that this is a great book to inspire children who have pets.
At the age of nine I was a measly fifty-five pounds soaking wet. I remember arriving home after school to what looked to be a Clifford-sized beast. Cautiously, I approached this massive monster and when I got to five feet away he ran towards me and licked my face like the leftovers on your dinner plate. Turns out, this “beast” was a stray Rottweiler from a few miles over with no collar. Because of Winn-Dixie is a story by Kate Dicamillo that captures the love of a little girl and her new stray dog. The movie of the same name, directed by Wayne Wang, is not as good, but is enjoyable. Overall, the book is superior to the movie because it conveys the plot and characters in a more heartfelt way.
