Tito is a blind child who is led into town by his dog, Bimbo. As long as people can remember seeing Tito, they say Bimbo.
Bimbo and Tito walk through the forum. While they walk through the forum they over hear people talking about how the smoke over Mt. Vesuvius was very high today. Tito ends up talking to one of them and says that there is always smoke over Mt. Vesuvius, and in school they use it as a weather forecast.
Bimbo!!!Bimbo!!! Bimbo where are you???
Who is Bimbo???
The confict is that Mt. Vesuvius erupts. This is an external confict which makes the conflic be Mt. Vesuvius vs. Tito.
It is very hard to breathe. So Bimbo has to bite Tito to keep him going. They eventually make it to the sea gate where they can be safe. The other humans around Tito splash water on him to make it easier to recover.
Bimbo disappeared and Tito was crying and yelling for him, but he didn't come back.
Thousands of years later people actually visit Pompeii to see what life was like before Mt. Vesuvius erupted. While two investigators were searching they saw the skeleton of a dog. It was Bimbo. They had seen something in his mouth and it was Tito's favorite food. A raisin cake. Bimbo was trying to get food for Tito so that he could keep him alive. Therefore, Bimbo was a great friend to Tito.
