Animals I Have Loved: What is wrong with another shaggy dog story?

I have dependably been a good reader from my childhood. Indeed, even before I truly
realized how to read, I could read pictures from some of the books that my mother and
grandmother used to read. I knew each book by heart that they read because I used to go over
them whenever time allowed me. For instance, I remember knowing all the Little Golden
Books' characters like The Pokey Little Puppy, The Tawny-Scrawny Lion, and The Saggy-Baggy
Elephant at a very tender age. I loved these characters as much I did love my playing mates at
home and school. Often, most people related my traits much to some of these characters, which
influenced me to love animal stories up to date.
 Immediately I was of age, I was enrolled in a nearby school where I met another
interesting animal story of my time. That is, the days of Dick and Jane, if you can relate. These
storybooks were interesting because their authors were considerate. They used simple and
phonetic language that incorporated the use of rhyming words to make the stories interesting to
read, easy to understand and remember. Also, Nat the Fat Cat was another interesting stories of
our time. Any time I remember the story I usually remember how top readers in class wore the
Nat the Fat Cat button as a reward. Even though they were mere trinkets, I remember I lost mine
in the first grade. Trust me, this was the saddest moment of my life till now.
Throughout the years, my perusing decisions turned out to be progressively complex, yet
solidly stuck in the animal world. I remember my first encounter with special books like Misty
of Chincoteague, Lassie Come-Home, and others. Undeniably, even though these was not my
part of what I had already been used to in my earlier years. I found them so interesting to read.
They developed my urge to research further on animal stories whenever I got a chance to visit a 
library at school. It is during this time that I got to discover the famous animal authors like Jim
Kjelgaard, Albert Terhune, and Margret Henry.
 Honestly, reading these books now is a different experience as compared to when I was
growing up. Many at times, how similar the animal characters tend to be confuses me. Why?
Most of the books are often vicious and uninviting. However, they carry with themselves special
themes that reflect the period they were written. Hunters shot the animals and in most of the
stories, hunters die in the end as a symbol of heroism. Maybe now I know why my choice was
not that bad after meeting Jack London.
Jack London is one of the best, actually the best, in animal stories. Of all the animal
books I have read so far, I consider him a legend because of many reasons. Some of his
outstanding works like Call of the Wild and White Fang depicted the highest of in the entire
history book writing. He portrays brutality of life in the Arctic wilderness by the use of the
natural law. For those of you who have not read it yet, the philosophy in the books is that of kill
or be killed or eat or be eaten. Since I have always been a victim of bullying, it was easy to relate
to the stories since most of the characters in the books are bullied, but finally they survive.
 In summary, animals have always been my best companions in times of loneliness and
difficult times. They have taught me the importance of persevering during difficult situations,
where no one is willing to offer their help. Although most of th
