Puppies, Dogs and Blue Northers

A dog is man's best friend, right? When it comes to Cookie, Gary Paulsen reflects on the wonderful friendship they shared. Cookie is the lead dog on Gary's team of sled dogs and has been for a very long time. Gary and Cookie have traveled alot of trails together. They have even competed in the Idiatrod. Cookie has given birth to many puppies but also goes back to work. You might call Cookie a working mother.

Gary Paulsen tells his own story of love and friendship with his canine friend. If the strength and endurance of sled dogs interest you, you will love this book. The road they have traveled is not always smooth sledding, there are plenty of bumps along the way. Children ages 10 and up will love to learn more about these amazing dogs and the training that goes into being a successful musher. This is an action packed adventure and love story of man and his one very special dog.

Climb aboard this dog sled, you won't ever forget it!
