'love that dog' is about a boy named Jack, still young and learning who read a poem called 'love that boy' by a man named Walter Dean Myers. From then on, Jack was inspired.Considering poetry was a new experience for Jack, I was surprised when I begun learning from Jacks words.
'love that dog' is actually inspired by 'love that boy.' Jack chose to write about his old dog Sky, that sadly passed. Jack was still emotionally attached to Sky, so grabbed his grief, and threw it on to a piece of paper.
I like this quote-
"Sometimes when you are trying not to think about something it keeps popping back in your head you can't help it you think about it and think about it and think about it until your brain feels like a squashed pea."
