Description

Grizz Brickbottom is one tough cowboy. But even the toughest cowboys, those who floss their teeth with barbed wire as Grizz does, can use some companionship. So Grizz adopts a dog that will help out with the cattle rustling and the mountain lion chasing. But somehow Grizz ends up with a pretty, pampered poodle, not a fierce, brave canine. John Frank delights in this tale filled with vivid imagery and loveable cowboy characters, who end up getting tamed by a little poodle named Foofy. Narrator Ed Sala perfectly captures this delightful story of how the West got a little less wild.

Professional reviews

"Grizz Brickbottom, tough cowboy that he is--he eats fried boots and lizard gizzards--realizes that he needs a change in companionship . . . "someone with silky hair . . . a lovely smell . . . and sweet kisses." He needs a dog! And though the dog he envisions is not the dog he ends up with, she's exactly what he needs, with some surprises of her own. Ed Sala creates a delightful array of Western twangs with slight variations in depth and tone to differentiate Grizz and his friends, Chuck Wagon, Bald Mountain, and Lariat. He brings this story full of humor, vivid imagery, and tall tales expertly to life. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
