Aw! I just performed a google search on "Along Came a Dog" and it looks too friggin adorable!
I absolutely love "old" book covers and this cover is too precious! Thank you for the recommendation!
"The story begins with a hen whose toes have frozen during the winter, leaving her with deformed feet. A lonely dog comes to the farm and they form an unlikely friendship. The farmer has a soft spot for animals and comes up with ways to make the little hen feel special again. He even makes rubber feet for her because the hen is different from the rest of the flock, the other chickens ignore he in spite of her friendliness. The dog also tries to win over the affection of the farmer, but trouble follows when the hen disappears to sit on a clutch of eggs..."
I absolutely must read this book! Just placed the book on "hold" at a local library.
Christian Classic Children's Literature and all books by James Herriot are favorite loves of mine.
I may be an adult, but I still delight in children books! I will forever be a kid at heart.
Thanks again, silkiecuddles!
