|Plot Summary of Timbuktu|
|"This is the story of Mr. Bones, a smart, sensitive dog who tries to survive on his own after homeless Willy Christman, the man he had been with since he was a pup, dies of illness and despair. Bones knows that if he doesn't find a new caring master within a short amount of time he will most definitely not survive. Dogcatchers, constables, the hyprocitic humane societies, some cruel humans, and Chinese restaurant owners are just examples of the dangers that a lone dog has to face in a big city like Baltimore. After several initially promising episodes with strangers and an exhausting journey that takes him into Northern Virginia Bones eventually finds a family that is good to him -- or so it seems. "
