I have written four short stories about animal abuse and rescue. I use the "Fox and the Hound" format where the animals talk to each other, but not to the humans. Each species of dog is vital to the story development and ultimate rescue.

Background Information

I am a practicing chiropractor who has written five books on the medical war against chiropractic, but I took a few months to write these four short stories about my family's dogs, or as we say it Down South, "dawgs." I use my pets as well as wild animals in these adventure stories that are action-packed.

My wife teaches the 5th Grade and has read these stories to her pupils as a focus group. Since 5th graders are the smartest kids in the world, they were great to critique these stories. My wife as the reader is very entertaining with her impersonation of each character, especially Dingo, the Australian Cattle Dog, who the kids love his accent and Aussie slang.

After reading all four stories, the teacher now asks the pupils to write the fifth chapter. This has encouraged many of them to write excellent stories often using new characters as well as the old ones.

I see this story as an animation someday since it flows so well with the action and character development. The first story is principally about Bandit, a Jack Russell, who helps rescue Shep, an old German Shepard, who has been abused and abandoned by his evil owner.

The second story deals with Panda and her peril getting lost, taken to the dog shelter where she is stolen by an employee who sells her to a dog fighting ring.

The third story deals with wild hogs that invade the ranch. I introduce the dilemma of hogs as well as big game fighting dogs to hunt them.

The fourth story deals with an alligator who invades the lake. It was fascinating to learn and write about how gators behave and are hunted.

All are action-packed, kids learn alot about animal behavior, and there is always a strong moral to the story when kids have to deal with death and responsibility.

I hope you enjoy the first story, "A Terrier's Tale."
