A plucky dog will do anything to get a job—even be a cow!

When a farmer tells a dog that “dogs just eat and don’t give anything back,” the dog is disappointed, but not discouraged. He’ll try being a cow, a horse, and a chicken before he’s done.  As the farmer learns the value of a good dog, children will laugh at the story in a book that celebrates persistence, ingenuity, and the fact that everybody can make a contribution.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—A scruffy dog wanders along a dirt road looking for a home. When he reaches a farm, he does not hesitate to ask the farmer if he is in need of a dog. The farmer quickly replies that indeed he does not. Determined, the courageous canine sets out to prove to the farmer his great worth. He herds the cows, entices the horses, and cleans the hen house, providing the headstrong farmer with much-needed time for rest. However, it is what the dog does when a predatory visitor arrives that makes the farmer realize how much he really is in need of a dog. This endearing story of a down-on-his-luck pooch who will not give up is both inspiring and entertaining. Children will be eager to discover how the dog will convince the farmer that he is a valuable animal, too. Set on a bucolic farm replete with rolling hills, plowed fields, and post and rail fences, the story and illustrations will take readers along on the main character's quest for warmth, food, shelter, and a place to belong. Done in muted shades of yellows, greens, reds, and grays with watercolor, graphite, and colored pencil, the illustrations complement the story nicely, adding emotion to the characters' experiences. The expressions on each character's face allow young readers to see and understand what each character is feeling. VERDICT A heartwarming tale that primary grade students will enjoy hearing.—Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE
