I absolutely love this story... great characterization for Barney.. and it tugged at my heartstrings when he continued to walk the paperroute on his own. Well written and nicely done!

I loved this story, too. Very nice job! One thing, though. You need to fix the word gate. It should be gait when talking about how the dog walked. I loved your ending. Very nice writing!

I have read most of the stories from this level, and this one is definetly a favorite. The continuance of the routine reminds me of an idiom: "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." It also reminds me of discipline, and faithfulness. We should learn things from our pets! I loved the ending as well; paying tribute to the "Gaurdian." thank you.

Thanks to one an all for the great comments. Yes, I should have checked the use of the word "gate"! Oops... Anyway, thanks for all the great encouragement.
What a beautiful story. He must have been a wonderful companion for your brother.
