The book had two dogs, Snow cone and Hersey Bar. These dog helped scout, hunt, and protect the main character and all of the children. Snow cone was white and Hersey was brown as you can imagine. These dog were very well trained and great dogs.
Lots of parents track the growth of their children by marking their increasing height measurements on a wall in their home. We love the awesome way Christine Ioannis tracked the growth of her German shepherd puppy: using a bottle of Sriracha sauce.
