Hero Dog Stories
With many tales of heroic dogs, how are these stories being told today? Many dog lovers are discovering their love of their pets through the stories of their dogs. It was not too long ago that dogs were not viewed as pets.
They were often viewed as livestock or even more inhumane than pigs. Today though, there is more than just love for dogs displayed in this type of literature. Dogs are animals, just like people. They need a good home, loving care, exercise and food. It is true that most dogs will not become famous. They do not go on trips or make movie appearances. But this does not mean that they cannot make wonderful companions for their owners. The dog storybook has changed quite a bit over the years. When I was young, we had two books with our favorite hero and his dog. We also had stories about a pet dog that saved lives and other dog stories. The dog that saved a boy's life as a child was the same dog that got away as a grownup and became an animal shelter dog for a woman who later lost her child. This woman's dog went on a short adventure, and he managed to get back to her and brought her a new puppy. Then she nursed him back to health and the rest is history.
Hero Dogs in Movies
Some heroic dog stories have even been adapted into movies. I remember seeing the movie, "Titanic." One of the scenes showed a man rescuing a dog. That dog was named "Bert" and he was portrayed by a dog called "Joe." I am always glad to see my dog, Trudy. She is one of my favorite friends. She does not get all of my attention but I love to pet her and talk to her. I remember when I was younger, we would read to our dog and she would love it. Today, I still look forward to reading the stories of the people and dogs that have made my life and those of others better. and I have even met some of the authors and published books as well! In our house, we have many dog stories that we listen to together. I also hear stories from my daughter and son. The dog in the story in the book was "Titan," a dog that saved the world. He was the hero in that story. In the book, "The Hero of Parsley Hollow," there was a dog named "Honey," and in that book, Honey fought off a man who was intent on kidnapping his family. In a real-life incident, Honey confronted by a mugger who threatened to kill his owner. A hero does not have to have superhuman powers. It does not have to be super-fast or have super-power. He or she can be a good dog with a heart who cares about others. In fact, heroes need love from their friends and the love of others in their life. The dog who saved the boy and his dog was a friend to us and our family. We learned about him at the dog park and were so grateful for his bravery and kindness to his owner. He was like our own children. The best thing about stories about heroic dogs is that they are often true. The dogs and the humans in them are real. The dog stories that I have read are often inspiring. I have found that there are many people who read them who have become devoted to dogs and their caretakers. Some of the people who read my stories become devoted to dogs because of the story's inspiring story. Other people read them because they are so realistic and inspiring. My dog "Titan" was a hero. I never once considered the cost of his kindness and bravery to other people. He and I will always share our stories, and he will never forget me. because I have taken so much from him. His courage touched people all over the world because his example showed us how to be heroic. I know that I am inspired to make my own hero's story now.
