Gabriel Robinson Mrs. O’neil/Language Arts Period 5 May 4, 2017 The Bully With The Rawhide Bone My dog, Hermes is a weird, and crazy dog. He is around half the size of my other dog, Lola, who is a small husky. When the wind blows, he yaps and yaps Until he is exhausted. Hermes sits on his large pillow, and guards his large, yard-long rawhide bone among his other toys As if they are his young. When I come near him, he growls, and sometimes barks- sometimes he makes me think that I am his nemesis, or he maybe plots to kill me behind my back. To be a nemesis of Hermes, you make him happy, my mother says, he can’t live without you

Once and awhile, she will stand up for herself, and growl back, but it is no use against Hermes. I sit and witness Lola, also get treated like a punching bag, Knowing what it feels like to be growled at snorted at sneezed at and toys being guarded from me-even though I have no interest in chewing a rawhide bone, he still guards it from me, like it is His young, still thinks that I am gonna take it.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
