It was not until I got home and we read him the book for bedtime did my husband and I realize how fantastically wonderful this book is. The book is called The Two Bobbies and is written by Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery. It is a true story of hurricane Katrina, the friendship of a dog and cat and survival.
The book has such a beautiful story in it. It is about a dog and a cat that get lost during hurricane Katrina and stick together. When they finally are found by the animal shelter they refuse to be separated. The shelter volunteers quickly realize that the cat is blind. The cat was using the dog as a seeing eye dog and they managed through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina together.
I will not spoil it, but the book has a happy ending with a picture of the real dog and cat. You can also look up the story online of the Two Bobbies. It was such a wonderfully sweet and inspiring story and I am so glad that Xavier picked it out as his first library book.
