Publisher's Summary

It's all fun and games until somebody ends up in the pound. It's been a busy few days for the Head of Ranch Security, what with routine patrols and not-so-routine combat with headless monsters. When the dust settles, Hank decides to take a break from duty and visit his sister in town. There, he enjoys the garbage patrol of a lifetime and faces down a brood of sassy town cats - and the plot thickens. Hank contracts a mysterious case of "soap hydrophobia" and ends up imprisoned in the dog pound! Is there any hope of escape for everyone's favorite cowdog?

Original songs include "Your Momma Wears Old Tow Sack Drawers", "Cats are Stupid", and "Kicking My Dog Around".

Hot dog: Don't miss out on any of Hank the Cowdog's adventures.

©1984 John R. Erickson; (P)1984 John R. Erickson

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    Story
    "Very silly and some LOL moments"

    Sometimes I think the book is pretty funny then other times I think it is so disrespectful that I'm glad I don't have young kids listening. Just as most books and movies are really only understood by adults, the same is with this book. The main character, Hank, has a great dislike for cats. He even goes so far as saying God made a mistake when He created cats. The listener needs to take these as folly and dismiss them or it will drag down the story.

    Hank is pretty self important. I know a few humans like him.

    "Note to parents"

    I love John Erickson's per trail of the story, but as a note to parents with small children, itdoes have a curse word in this story. It's the other word for donkey.

    "My kids love the Hank stories"
    What did you love best about It's a Dog's Life?

    We spend a lot of time in the car. My kids love the Hank series and the crazy antics they get into. They will listen to these stories over and over again.
