Tito and his dog Bimbo are inseperable. They work together to support each other, and they live together on the side of the street.One thing that makes life hard for Tito is that he is blind.
All of the people keep ignoring the warning signs people are giving them about the eruption of Vesuvius a few miles away as the smoke and ash start to cover the bright sky.
Vesuvius starts to erupt and destroy the city and Tito is having trouble finding his way around because of all the noise, and Bimbo is trying to rush him through the crowd.
Tito and Bimbo started off the day well with two good cakes for breakfast, but as the other people said, the volcano starts to erupt but everyone ignores it for a while.
As Tito is being rushed out of the city, he is still horrified that Bimbo is not there with him, and he keeps yelling his name. "Bimbo! Bimbo!", he cried.
As Tito was half dead lying on the ground, burning with the ash and pumice, Bimbo does the only thing he can do. Bite him deep in the arm hoping to keep him awake so he can get out in time. After he leads Tito through the crowd and he is sure he is safe, he goes back into the city.
