Honoring the Dogs
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     "Uncle Bart," called Jose, "where are you?"
2     "I am here in the workroom," yelled Uncle Bart. "Come and see what I am working on."
3     Jose clomped down the stairs into the basement. The front of the house opened onto a hilltop. The basement opened onto the backyard. It had big glass doors that let in lots of light.
4     Uncle Bart was working at a scroll saw. It could cut shapes from wood. Uncle Bart was cutting a shape.
5     Jose knew not to get close. A moment later, Uncle Bart held up the wood he was cutting. "What does this shape look like, Jose?" he asked.
6     "It looks like a dog," said Jose.
7     Uncle Bart nodded. "Do you know what kind of dog?"
8     Jose cocked his head and thought. "It looks like a German shepherd dog," he said.
9     Uncle Bart nodded. "That is correct. I have more over here. What do they look like?"
10     Jose looked at the cut-out shapes. He stood them up in a row.
