This is an interesting experience about how Hank (head of ranch security) leaves and goes to the town to visit his sister Maggie. She tricks him into eating an ivory bar of soap. Then he gets caught by the dog pound and they think he has hydrophobia. However, Hank manages to break out.

Hank the Cowdog It's a Dog's Life #3 Dec 13 2010
By Joe Brillante - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book a lot, and I would recommend it too anybody! It is funny, and it was a joy to read! The main character was a dog nicknamed "Hank", although his real name is "Henry", which is not mentioned much in this book. There are a couple of little mysteries in it. The first one starts when another dog on the same farm as Hank, named Drover, awakens Hank from his nap to tell him that he heard that the world will end the next day at 3:00 p.m. Hank reacts in a very worried way, saying how it must be impossible for the world to end, although Drover tells him that's it's very true, and he's positive. Then, one of the farmers/owner's of the farm (named Sally May) runs into her car and leaves the farm. They both assume that she has heard the news, and that she is trying to get out of this world. Hank figures out that Drover heard the news from a cat, named Pete. They question him, and he says that he overheard Sally May speaking on the phone, and then write down "End of the World 3:00 p.m." on the calender. How will Hank figure out if this is ture, or not?
Another little mystery in this same book is that in part of the book, while Hank is vistiting his sister, who prepared him a dinner one night, as he finishes eating, he soon realizes that bubbles are coming out of his mouth! He starts to feel sick, and so he runs out into an alley, so that he won't dissapoint his sister because of how bad the food he was fed by her was. Then a van pulls up...
Why would his sister, Maggie ever feed him something that makes him burp up bubbles, and make his mouth start foaming? Read to find out.
