Down Girl & Sit - The Series

Down Girl & Sit is a fun beginning chapter series that peeks into the minds of two mischievous dog friends as they wonder about life in the neighborhood and how to get their maters' attention. In the book I read, Bad to the Bone, the dog capers include knocking their humans off painting ladders, grabbing the hamburger man's dinner and saving the neighborhood from cats, Here Kitty Kitty, and squirrels. The exasperated humans drag Down Girl & Sit to obedience school, but it clear to our clever canines, humans can just NOT be trained!
This is a good mentor text for writers to study POV, anthropomorphism, and a clever plot line.  Ba-roo!
