Black and White
No longer in print.
Bud really wants to keep his new black-and-white dog, but his mother insists that they not name the pup until he proves that he can be a good farm dog. When the pup disappears, Bud has a hard time finding him because the dog blends in so well with the other breeds of black-and-white farm animals.
Illustrators note: I used my nephew as the model for Bud in this story and my sister as his mom.
