Bijou and the Big Bad Cat

This is a story about a brave dog and its love for its owner.

“I used to be an ordinary dog in a place that some people called Petit Nord. Some call it Nord-Kivu or just Eastern Congo. There is the great lake at our feet and, in the distance, the fire-spitting mountain. Madame called it the Switzerland of Africa but, for me, a regular big black dog, this is just my home…”

“…I was banished to the woods, left with the birds and the monkeys and all the other creatures that hid in the dark of the forest…”
