Comment:

Is Shiloh really coming to an end it will be really sad because I am not kidding that is my favorite book and it just sad to see that my favorite book is coming to an end please don’t end Shiloh

Phyllis replied:

I’m sorry I can’t go on writing Shiloh books forever, but I hope you will read all four. The  Shiloh quartet will tell you how it all turns out between Marty and Judd Travers and Shiloh.

I don’t want Shiloh to end!

Comment:

Hello My name is Sofia from Van buren Elementary 5th grade instead of ending SHiloh you can make more stories like here I have a few suggestions like you can make a story where shiloh remembers his parents and travels to find them or you can make a story on how Shiloh meets a female dog and the female dog was a homeless dog so then Marty takes her in… If you can tell I just don’t want Shiloh to end.

Phyllis replied:

There are four Shiloh books, each telling you what happens next.  But you might enjoy writing your own Shiloh story!

Judd Travers

Comment:

I just started reading Shiloh, and I kinda don’t get Judd Travers.

Phyllis replied:

That’s understandable.  You really need to read the whole book.  In fact, if you read all four of the Shiloh books, you’ll know a lot more about Judd and why he acts the way he does.

Shiloh the real dog

Comment:

Hello my name is Sofia I was reading through the questions and I saw that Shloh had died if you can please tell me how he died I would love to know becasue I have a friend how just got a dog bt her dog acts wierd it acts sad all the time and all it wants to do is sleep. I actually wanted to see him but now I know that will never happen I just wish I could see him mabey when it is my time I could meet him but Shiloh is so adorable and i can’t believe that he is dead I am so sorry for your loss and one more question who is his owner and was this dog actully hurt durring the film and was he abused and mistreated before like the actually book and is his name Shiloh or soemthing else.

 

Phyllis replied:

Shiloh was an actual dog–a female, really, though I changed it to male in my books.  When I first found her, she acted so frightened, afraid even to let me touch her, and we could tell she had been mistreated somewhere along the line.  I don’t know anything about her background or what her name was originally, but after our friends adopted her and named her Clover, they said she was the happiest dog in West Virginia.
