|Tana web (I made it)|
I got my dog Tana when she was about five months old and now she is twelve but in dog years she’s eighty-two. Tana is a Pyrenees, which is a kind of dog that protects sheep. When we were little she thought we were the sheep and protected us instead. We have two other dogs named Pepper, who is thirteen and in dog years he’s eighty-nine, and there’s Blackie who is eleven but in dog years she’s seventy-five.

When Tana was one she had nine puppies, which is quite a lot for a dog. But one day Tana was lying on the driveway (she didn’t have puppies yet) and my dad was going back to work and Tana was still lying on the driveway and my dad didn’t know Tana was there. He backed up and ran over her and broke her hip and we took her to the vet clinic, but she still lived.

One of the stories I am going to tell you is when Tana saved me from a bear. My mom just got back from town and had put my brother in the jolly jumper outside, where my sister and I were playing on the swing set. Mom was unloading the car and had just gone inside when Tana started to bark wildly. My mom had a feeling that something was wrong, so she took the jolly jumper with Connor in it and told me and Kelsey to follow her inside. Then my sister looked out the window and the next thing you know there’s a grizzly bear right in my yard! Then Tana chased the bear out of our yard.

Another time there was also a black bear in our yard. It got in our garbage barrels and was looking for food. Tana started to bark though and chased the black bear to the creek. Thank goodness if Tana wasn’t there, I don’t know what would happen to me or my family. That’s how Tana is my one and only hero.
