“Demo Was My Snoopy”
A boy inspired by his dog
Demo and Jon Bozak

I’m a huge fan of the children’s book, “Demo: The Story of a Junkyard Dog,” written with wry humor by Jon Bozak and illustrated by Scott Bruns. So I was very sad to hear that the real-life Demo – Bozak’s rescue Pit Bull – passed away just shy of 16 years. Not bad for a 65-pound dog born in a scrap yard. Bozak wrote a moving tribute to Demo that every dog lover should read. The way he measures their time together is both humorous and poignant. Once you’ve finished drying your eyes, buy the book, then tell me about the dog who inspired you.
