"Murphy-Stop-That is my name. I am a terrier. I bark. I bark at anything and everything and all the time."
As he goes through his day -- barking, eating, outsmarting the dumb animals on the farm, putting up with a visit to the vet -- Murphy never loses his doggy enthusiasm, even when he has to sleep out in the barn.
In her charming new tale, acclaimed author and illustrator Alice Provensen shows that every dog -- even a bad dog -- has his day.

About the Author:

Alice Provensen is the author and illustrator of Murphy in the City, A Day in the Life of Murphy, and Klondike Gold. She collaborated with her late husband, Martin, on many other highly acclaimed picture books, including the Caldecott Medal–winning The Glorious Flight and Nancy Willard’s Newbery Medal–winning A Visit to William Blake’s Inn, which was also a Caldecott Honor Book. The Provensens have been on the New York Times list of the Ten Best Illustrated Books eight times. Alice lives in California.

From AudioFile:

Murphy-stop-that is the name of the terrier who tells this story, in which, appropriately, since it depicts a day in the life of a dog, nothing much happens. There's the fixation with food and the smelling out of mice and a trip to the vet's . . . but don't expect a lot of plot here. Narrator Jason Harris zestfully enacts the dog's frenzy of joy over food smells, his panting voice, his inner struggle over trying not to bark, and his yappy little bark that cannot be suppressed. Provensen is a well-known illustrator, and her pictures, along with Harris's lively rendition of the canine, are sure to strike a chord with dog owners.
