I think the book was good. I liked reading about how Captain helped to save Ned's life. Gail is a caring little girl who loves her dad. She promised her dad she would take care of Ned, and she does.
My favorite part was when Captain helped to save Ned's life. Ned was freezing and dying, when Gail helped pull him to his house. Another of my favorites was when Captain was protecting Gail and her sisters from the little girl that was teasing them.
One of the things I liked best about this book is the characters. Captain is a brave and kind dog. He always listens to Gail. Gail was also a fun character. She trusted Captain, and she cared about everyone. They made a great team.
Gail and her dog, Captain, have a lot in common. They both helped Ned. Gail gave Captain to Ned to help him get around. Gail, Big Mama, Mama, and Ned all have a different way of thinking. Timmy and Mary Nell both like dogs, and they love the outdoors.
I recommend this book to a lot of kids who like reading dog stories. This book explains how Captain and Gail help her uncle and always help each other.
