Mister Bud and Zorro get along just great. They wake up together, have walk time together, and take naps together. But something is about to interrupt their schedule: Zorro has to wear a fancy outfit.
Zorro is embarassed, mortified, aghast. Mr. Bud tries to cheer him up, but nothing works. Everyone makes fun of Zorro, and he refuses to participate in chew-on-a-stick time. Mister Bud doesn't know what to do.
But when another dog--a very cool" dog--shows up in an outfit and does amazing tricks and beats all the other dogs in a race, Zorro discovers that wearing clothes might not be so bad after all.
Everything is back on schedule.
"Mark this one 'to read.'"--Kirkus Reviews
"Goodrich is brilliant at depicting doggy emotions, whether it is the deeply embarrassed Zorro, content Mr. Bud, or suave Dart. As in the first installment, the book is well designed, with ample white space surrounding the all-small-caps font and bright images. Whether shared one-on-one or as part of a dog-themed storytime, this book is sure to please existing fans of Mr. Bud and Zorro and create new admirers of these charming pups."--School Library Journal
"A treat for dog lovers young and old."--Booklist
