Enjoy a walk with Little Tank, the curious basset puppy, and his dachshund buddy Topo. Dog lovers of all ages will recognize their own canine pals in these two lively pups. The story is told in rhyme, with bright watercolor illustrations, including a map of the neighborhood, where you can retrace the dogs' travels. And don’t miss the Bonus at the back of the book: a veterinarian- and dog-trainer-approved guide to "Dog Park Etiquette" — a page of tips to help dogs and their people safely enjoy their visits to off-leash dog parks.
Looking for adventure and new friends, the puppies, with Mom holding the leashes, explore the neighborhood and meet the people who live and work there: the ladies next door, a delivery person, a gardener, a cement mixer crew, the mail carrier, Officer Shirley and her K9 partner, a carpet cleaner, a couple on a motorcycle, and the kids arriving at the school bus stop. And at the end of the walk, the puppies, Mom and the kids enjoy a wonderful surprise — the pups’ first visit to the dog park!
You’ll find more stories about Tank and his pals — feisty Fluffy and guard dogs Rocky and Ready — in "Three Tales, Four Dogs," also by Roz Silva and Sue Ann Erickson.
