Cowpoke Clyde's house was completely clean — he'd even shooed off the horseflies: “ Then suitable behind his cookin' pot, / he spied one thing he'd plumb forgot: / ol' Dawg, his faithful, snorin' friend, / all caked with mud from end to finish. The chase that follows — with page-turn surprises — makes for a hilarious shaggy-dog story involving fleas, a hog, bribery, cats, deception, and a mule. A storytime shoo-in! Austin's expressive acrylic and colored-pencil caricatures of Cowpoke Clyde and his menagerie are priceless. ” Needless to say, Dawg wakes up and runs. The rhyming stanzas are pitch-perfect, Texas-style, and plumb near cry out to turn out to be read aloud.
