Everyday when Ricky's mom feeds the cats, the dog appears and Ricky tries to scare the dog away. Ricky eventually starts to like the dog, but in the back of his mind he knows that he is scared. He has to make the choice, to let his guard down and accept the dog or continue not liking dogs because of his past.
Best part of story, including ending: I like that it encourages to get past your fears.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when the dog arrived for the first time on the farm. It introduced the conflict and was also funny.

Opinion about the main character: I liked that he overcame his fear of disliking dogs and being more sensitive and open-minded.
