    A cute story about a dog whose owners gets a new dog a little yappy one that the first dog doesn't like The story line is typical and predictable but the illustrations are adorable The sounds the different dogs make are fun especially if you get into it My kids like repeating the fun sounds and so it went over somewhat well in our house The different sounds were fun than the story though The reading level is somewhere around a level 2 but probably still better as an adult read not really for beginner's

    Finally This is the awesome basset hound picture book that I have been waiting for The whole thing was perfect I love that the author is also a basset owner Both she and the illustrator captured George the basset perfectly Some Dog is the story of George the basset hound who lives a lazy comfortable life with a man and a woman until a stray comes to live with them The stray Zippity is hyper and enthusiastic about everything He is also good at many things He can get the paper fetch sticks and even catch fish George starts to feel a bit outdone and ignored Then a loud storm hits and Zippity gets scared and starts to run jump and crash around the house and finally goes outside and gets lost The man and the woman call on George to catch Zippity's scent to find him George is the best scent tracker there is and he tracks Zippity all over even after the man and woman go home Finally George finds Zippity and rescues him He brings him home and is a hero From that day on he and Zippity are friends and live a happy life with the man and woman I loved this book It shows that even when someone new comes into your life and makes you feel not as noticed because they can do things that you can't that you should remember that you are still just as loved and needed as you always were You are special because you are you and can do other things that only you can do The other thing that made this book so great was the artwork It was adorable and captured the essence of a basset hound perfectly The sad droopy eyes the fat feet and every wrinkle The expressions on George's face were priceless In contrast Zippity was just as well executed to be the excitable yippie little stray He had a happy grin and scrappy fur and was constantly in motion This a wonderful children's book I adored it

    An old dog feels overlooked when another dog shows up that is younger and energetic than him Eventually the old dog has the chance to have his home back when the new dog runs away during a thunderstorm after wrecking the house Then in true selfless fashion he agrees to use his amazing sense of smell to recover the lost new dog in true heroic fashion I mean what's not love about this one I was really pleased with this as were my wife and son Nicely done
