"Gummy and The Ferret" by Barbara J. Morgan is a story about a dog named Gummy that has to move to a shelter for a short time because her owners could not take care of her anymore. Gummy is a cute Pit-bull that walks very funny and looks like a gummy bear.
Gummy is a happy dog, but she is sad that her family left her at the shelter. Her new place at the shelter is nice. There are many other animals there needing to be taken care of too, just like her.
Days go by and little by little, Gummy gets used to the shelter and meets a lot of new friends. One day when she is sitting in her cage, she sees the cage in front of her and does not know what is inside. It is a ferret, his name is Finian, and soon they start talking and playing together. One morning Finian wakes up and sees that Gummy is not in her cage. He gets all worried thinking she was adopted.
I really love the story of "Gummy and The Ferret" by Barbara J. Morgan. It will teach kids how shelters are really special places for this animals that have been abandoned, or that their owners can't take care of, and will make you think to be a helper or adopt a pet. Very cute story.
About the Author
Growing up I always had a way with animals. I had also experienced many tragic events with them. After caring for people for twenty years in a prison, I was finally able to return to what I love most—caring for my four-legged friends. All animals are special and they are all deserving of love and companionship. Adopting a pet is a very rewarding experience and my wish is for all of the animal shelter pets to find their forever homes.

"... At the shelter they did so many nice things for the animals that were homeless or left behind or not taken care of. They cleaned them up, cut their nails, gave them baths and treated them with all the necessary medicines they might need. They took good care of the dogs and cats and ferrets and rabbits and chickens and almost any kind of animal that needed a home..."
I was amazed how much content the author packed into this book.
For instance this short passage clarifies how animals end up in a shelter. They are
• left behind
• not taken care of
The staff at the shelter takes care of the animals by
• cleaning them up,
• cutting their nails,
• giving them baths
• treating them with all the necessary medicines they might need
I believe that this is a very valuable book, a book children might want to read again and again, because not only is the story cute, this book answers many of the questions youngsters may have.
