Editorial Reviews

The Community Voice
A charmingly illustrated story of a thoroughbred English Fox Terrier named Tex.
Winnepeg Sun
Tex is an English foxhound with an overbite. when nobdy will adopt him, he's sent to the dog pound, where he's rescued by a native woman who teaches him a new language. A charmer for toddlers.
Children's Literature - Linnea Hendrickson
"Are you wondering why Tex was in the dog pound?" This is the familiar story of an unwanted puppy, how he got to the dog pound, and what happened next, told briskly from the perspective of the intelligent and unsentimental little dog himself. Tex is an English foxhound, bred to be a show dog, but alas, he is the runt of his litter and has an overbite (tantalizingly left unexplained). But it all works out for the best when Tex gets a loving home with an Anishinabay woman who calls him her "Animoosh." He remembers why he didn't want to be a show dog with a life of "airplane flying and car riding in wire cages...He wanted a dog's life! He wanted to live in a nice loving home, and he needed to be someone's friend." There's just enough detail, and just enough left unexplained to hold the reader's interest. Dobson's illustrations are expressive and have a wonderful sense of design. His images of Tex are unforgettable.
Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Tex is the runt of a litter of eight English foxhounds. During the first weeks of his life, he stays with his mother and siblings in a large red box, where he is content to eat, sleep, and play. Soon, however, experts evaluate the puppies for their show-dog potential, and Tex's size and overbite eliminate him as a contender. As his brothers and sisters leave with new owners, Tex remains, and is eventually taken to the pound. His dreams of a loving home and a human friend finally come true when an Anishnabay woman chooses him to be her best friend. Dobson's watercolor illustrations greatly enhance the slight story line, and the artist's effective use of white space focuses and holds readers' attention. The whimsical expressions of the small black-and-white dog will endear Tex to picture-book audiences.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
