Book Character Day is one of my favorite events. This year I am dressed as Himawari ( Sunflower ) who became a stray dog and ended up in the pound. Himawari is a powerful mother to her puppies, and she will do anything to protect the puppies. At the pound, when a staff went near one of her puppies, Himawari bit the staff hard.
Himawari feels that humans are bad. It is because she had an owner before who had to leave Himawari to go to the Elderly's Home and that was how she became a stray dog. And after that mean people who did not like dogs must have beaten her and hurt her, so Himawari is scared of humans. Himawari was very aggressive at the pound especially because she had a bad feeling about humans. But slowly Himawari begins to open her heart towards one of the members of staff.
I like Himawari because she is a very strong, protective mother.
