The Dog of Pompeii takes place in Pompeii in the year of 79 A.D. When mount Vesuvius erupted ashes out into the air, burying people alive except for Tito a blind, homeless boy and his dog Bimbo who is also homeless, and some other people survived as well.
Mount Vesuvius erupts but nobody notices its warning calls or if they did notice it they thought it wasn't going to do anything.
Mount Vesuvius is the antagonist because it's the onethat caused the conflict.
Tito is the protagonist of the story because he is the main character.
Protagonist and Antagonist
The Theme of the story The Dog of Pompeii is that true friends do crazy things to keep us from harms way.
Well the authors purpose is to tell the story what happened before they found the skeleton dog and why he was holding a piece of raisin bread in his mouth.
The characters are not credible because Tito gets fed, and cared from a dog. Also Bimbo is not a credible character because he acts like a mom and takes care of a human rather than him being taken care of from a human.
