Publisher's Summary

Hank is helping the cowboys with the dangerous mission of rounding up a very angry bull when a strange twist of events brings a yellow Labrador onto the scene. The entire ranch quickly becomes enamored with this new addition to the ranch's Security Division. Who wouldn't love a good-natured dog who strikes fear into the hearts of angry bovines, wears a big sloppy grin all day, and adores the ranch kids? Where will Hank fit in now that there is a Perfect Dog on the scene? Hank sings a little thing called "Happy Dog", and the yellow Labrador sings his story in "Happy's Confession".

In Our Top 5 Favorites in the Series!

My kids (14, 12, and 10 yrs old) and I absolutely love this series... we started listening to them 7 years ago while my daughter underwent many eye surgeries She was 6 at the time and an avid little reader. These books helped to pull her out of her deep depression due to her vision changes. My kids still like to relisten to them now. They are so entertaining with the book being written from the dog's perspective. Each book has a mystery or problem that Hank (The Head of Ranch Security) needs to solve and is laced with comedy throughout. This one they end up taking in a lost labrador and he really showcases the common traits of the breed and the problems he brings... or is it just jealousy on Hanks part?

These are great if you have younger children that love animals and it's a great excuse for those of us that are still young at heart. I would definitely recommend these as an audio read because they are amazingly narrated with sound effects and music. Also, since Hank is a dog, he gets mixed up with his words at times which does make it a more challenging read for those younger readers.

Funny. My son loved it and I didn't mind it either

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes because we listen to it in the car on the way to my son's dad's. We both know the story and he likes that I know what he is talking about when he jokes about it.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The twist on the title. Perfect dog indeed.

Have you listened to any of John R. Erickson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

They vary a bit. He seems to change up the voices for the characters over time. It is jolting at first but over time I adjusted and could enjoy it like any other. I honestly don't think my noticed though.

Could you see The Case of the Perfect Dog being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no, it is too short but the series as a whole could be a kid's animated movie. I don't reccommend it being made into a movie but who is going to ask me.
