Description

New York Times bestselling author Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman and Food Network Star, introduces us to Charlie, her beloved short-legged pioneer dog. This endearing picture book for dog lovers everywhere shows readers that even though you may love bacon and naps most of all, working on the ranch is all about hard work and determination.

Meet Charlie. He's a ranch dog. Breakfast is his life, especially when bacon is involved. Charlie has dangly ears, floppy skin, and big fat paws. And he loves living in the country. That's because he works like a dog...fixing fences, gardening, and helping his family out on the range. A ranch dog's work is never done
