2: Shiloh is an action-packed book of excitement. A great relationship between two great buddies that won't be taken apart, no matter what happens. Marty, an 11 year-old boy takes a casual walk every day down to the Shiloh schoolhouse bridge. All of the sudden he spots a dog, white with brown and black spots. Not making much sound.
3: He named the dog Shiloh. He takes it home and show his parents and asked if they could keep Shiloh. His parents answer with an unfortunate no. His dad thought that it might belong to Judd Travers because he just got a new hunting dog. So that night him and his dad went to take Shiloh back to Judd.
4: Marty, said on the way to Judds that Shiloh was scared because he treats him badly. Marty's dad Ray says, "doesn't seem like any marks on him". Marty doesn't like Judd. Because once he saw him cheat a grocery store cash register by giving him a 10 and
5: starts talking and gets change for 20. The second reason is that Judd was at the fairgrounds and he was always in front of him blocking his view. He also kills deer out of season. Marty, on the way to Judd's saw a dog with a bullet hole in its head. Once they got to Judd's Judd grabs Shiloh out of Marty's lap and says "it's okay I'll give him a whippin' that he'll remember. The next morning Marty wakes after a terrible night of sleep from thinking of Shiloh. He spots something out the window, it looks like Shiloh, he shakes his head to make sure it was real, but nothing changed. He got dressed as quick as possible and darted out the door to see Shiloh laying there tail wagging. He grabbed Shiloh with joy. Marty knew he had to hide Shiloh somewhere, but where? As he makes his way to the
6: LOVE | shed he figured a plan out. He could make a pen out of his dads wire and keep him there, take him for a walk every day or a jog. He went into the shed and grabbed the wire and went up the hill and found somewhere hidden by trees and made a square to put Shiloh in and did. A couple days later his mom came up
7: the hill to see what he had been doing up there and she saw him with Shiloh and said that she wouldn't tell dad if he promise not to say that she knew about it. That night he was sleeping on the couch (his regular bed) and heard a whine of some sort from the hill and his dad heard it too so they ran up the the hill to see Shiloh laying on the ground with bloody wound. He sees the neighbor's German Shepherd running away from the scene. Marty picks Shiloh up and carryed him to the car to Doc Murphy's. Doc said he might be able to save him but he didn't know until tomorrow. On the way home it was a silent ride. In the house he could hear his dad arguing with his mom because she didn't tell him. His dad said that he had to take him back when he gets better.
8: On the summer morning his friend David shows up but Marty isn't very happy because he has to stay for the whole day and he is still kind of mad about Shiloh. Marty's dad comes home with the dog and he is okay but needs time to rest. The kids play with the dog but not rough. The next day he has to give the dog back. He was going to try to buy Shiloh from him but Judd said no. That night after a long hard day he thought that he could work him back so as soon as he woke up in the morning he would go to Judd's house and tell him him that he will work. As soon as he gets up he gets dressed and heads to Judd's house. He took the short cut through the woods to his house and heard a gun shot and ducked right away. He automatically knew who it was, Judd Travers. It was a dead doe that he had killed. He had
9: a glance at him but not for to long because he didn't want to be seen. He got up and headed toward him. He said "I want my dog back!". Judd said fine and put him to work. After the first couple days Judd says" you've been working alot for nothing kid". "I'm not gonna give you the dog back". He kept working and Judd said again "you're not gettin' the dog back". He kept working for the rest of the week and Judd said fine and gave him Shiloh.
10: Favorite Scene | My favorite scene is when he sees the beagle on the bridge and brings the dog home. I like this scene because this is so cool how he gets the dog to come to him. He tries to tell it to come but it won't listen so he whistles and he comes right to him. I also like this because he starts to want a dog and if he wouldn't there would be no story line. This is also cool because how the dog was not used to being talked to and that by whistling Shiloh had never heard that he came.
11: Main Character | Marty is a kid who had a normal life until he takes home a beagle. This changes his life so much. He would have a big journey ahead of him. Marty changed physically because when he was working for Judd he had to work very hard. He also changed mentally because his heart was broken when Shiloh had to leave.
12: Important scene | I think the most important scene is when he is working for Judd because he is determined to get the dog back and no was not an answer I think this is important because this is where he gets Shiloh and starts to want a dog. This is also important because he wants to get the dog back so bad and will still work because he knows that Judd will give him back even though he said he won't.
13: Answers | My role in the story would be a dog patrolmen. I would help Marty by arresting Judd and getting the dog back then convince Marty's parents to keep the dog. I would have relationship with his parents as a good person and I would tell them that he was treating him bad. They might not believe Marty but they will believe me. I would change the story outcome by arresting Judd then telling Marty's parents that Judd was
14: treating Shiloh bad. Then I would convince Marty's parents that they should keep the dog and the past he had gone through.
16: LIVE LAUGH
19: BE SILLY. BE HONEST. BE KIND.
22: KEEP ON SMILING LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING
23: ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN
