With just 31 carefully chosen words and wonderfully expressive illustrations, the author tells the tail-wagging story of an irrepressibly vigilant sheepdog determined to protect her water bowl from all interlopers--bugs, birds, frogs, and most especially, a thirsty and equally determined cat. Full color.

Marilyn Janovitz attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and the Philadelphia College of Art. She has worked as a textile designer, created artwork for advertising and magazines, and illustrated numerous books for children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Using just one word per page and expressive watercolor illustrations, Janovitz creates an enjoyable picture book. The rhyming text tells how a shaggy-haired dog guards his water bowl from various intruders: a tenacious kitten, a spider, a bird, and a frog. The colors are muted; at times, the compositions seem flat and one-dimensional. Nonetheless, this whimsical tale is well served by illustrations that enhance and extend the simple rhymes. Beginning readers will delight in a book that isn't too hard, yet serves up a few humorous surprises.
