Rutherford, Canine Comic

“How do you know when your dog’s been drinking from the toilet?¬† His breath smells…BETTER.”

Some dogs fetch sticks. Others roll over. Some even play dead. But have you ever heard of a dog who tells jokes? Meet Rutherford–a bona fide stand-up comedian.

Rutherford, Canine Comic is the first book in a middle-grade novel series told from the perspective of the title character. It features the exploits of a basset hound whose only goal in life is to become a faithful and fearless family watchdog. But when an accident with a pickup truck on a dark dirt road leaves Rutherford with two broken legs, his dreams of protecting the hearth soon fade.

Rutherford reluctantly accepts the fact that he must now find a new career–one that will pay the bills. He turns to the glitz and glamour of the stage, and a career as a stand-up comedian, a decision which unfortunately presents more than the fame and fortune he is expecting. Rutherford soon experiences a host of misadventures for which he is unprepared.
