Bubba, a brand-new Texas baby, and Beau, a brand-new Texas puppy, are best friends with a nose for adventure. They have lots in common, including a mutual respect for . . . mud and a mutual disdain for . . . soap. So, when Mama Pearl decides to give them--and their favorite blankie--a bath, it's a sad, sad day in Bubbaville.
This is just the beginning of a playful new series starring these irresistible youngsters--and their many outrageous antics. Ar-ar-aroooooo!!!
