The Blue House Dog
by Deborah Blumenthal
Day after day, Cody watches Bones roam the streets. No one else thinks the old stray is special, but Cody does.
He knows the dog is alone now. He watched them tear down the blue house where Bones used to live with the old man.
Cody knows how it feels to lose someone, too.
Slowly, cautiously, Cody opens his home and his heart to the scruffy dog with one blue eye and one brown.
In this powerful story of friendship and healing, a boy without a dog and a dog without an owner learn to trust again.
