Paws for a Hero

I learned a new word and it's called "Hero". I learned it cause I read a book called Demo: The Story of a Junkyard Dog.

Demo is so cool in the story and saves the day so he's a hero for the people in the book. I learned that being a hero is cool cause it means that the things you do make people's hearts smile, so they must be good things. Then I learned that the Demo in the book is a real-live dog and that made the story even better and made Demo even more of a hero. This is a drawing of Demo - Isn't he the cutest???:

One day my person talked to Demo's person, Jon, and Jon had a really awesome idea. He asked if I would put my paw on some ink and then put it on a Demo book as part of a contest. Jon also asked my siblings Jonny Justice, Uba and Hector to put their paws on the books, and told us that Demo would put his paw on too for the contest.

I LOVED this idea cause I thought it would be so much fun to put my paw on the ink and I could be really silly when I was doing it and then maybe someone might really like to see my paw on the book. So me and my person put my paw on the ink and then on the book!!!!

Here's the link to a video of me putting my paw on the book. If you click on the link you will see how it was so awesome and how I was laughing and how my tail was wagging and I hope you laugh and your tail wags, too. The end is my favorite part cause I did a good'll see.

So now you gotta check out Demo's book and look at the contest where you can win one of these cool books with the paws:

Me and Demo and Jonny and Uba and Hector hope you love the book and the contest. And I hope you think Demo is a hero like I do cause we all need a hero who makes our heart smile.

Happy Hero and Merry Holidays.

Love, Jhumpa Jones

Happy Merry Day

Today my people woke me up from my morning nap.

They put this red thing on my head and took pictures of me.

It was kind of annoying, but it made my people smile, so I tried not to be too grumpy.

Happy new toys day!

My Dude

Back when I first was taken from dat "mean guys" yard and kept in a cell for like, forever! I was so scared being all alone.  I couldn't see my sister or my cousins but heard dem barking.  Den one day a pack of humans came and were staring at me. I wanted to bark, "Why are you guys starring at me? Don't you know dats rude?!"  Den dey tried to make me do tings I didn't want to do!  Den dis human dey called Tim, brought me outside and talked softly, while holding me in his arms.  I wanted to lick him and tank him, for his kindness but was too scared to do so.  When he left dat day, I tought "Oh no where's my dude going?! " Guess what?!  My dude didn't forget about me!  Turns out, he sent people from his pack to spring a bunch of us from dat scary holding place.  Well, a lot has happened since dat first day I met dat human with the kind eyes.  I now have a forever home, I'm learning dat its OK to explore scary tings and have met other nice humans too.  But, its "My Dude" who will always hold, dat special place, in my wittle bully heart.  ~Love Frodo~
