One interesting thing about this book is how a boy when he was a little kid was attacked by vicious dog. He always hated dogs after that because people (docters) would hold him down to give him rabie shots so that he would not die or get very sick at a young age. But then, a dog came to the farm and he would always say to that stray dog
One thing that I liked about this book was that it showed how a terrified boy bonded with his fear. One thing that I did not like about this book though was that it had a very upsetting ending because the dog came to troble with a machine carrying some big heavy pipes and well, you'll have to read the book to find out.
