Join Patches in another adventure! This time that Tennessee Hound is headed for Texas with his family. His role on the trip is so mysterious that even Patches isn't sure what it is. All he knows is his family seems rather occupied with his production of dog signs. He sees some interesting animals. At the Rest Stop, Patches meets a big, bad, bully dog & he manages to avoid a confrontation, but when he meets him later at the hotel, tempers flare! In one chapter, there are some pesky geese that the Rocky-Top Rover must drive away from the family picnic. Later, he encounters a staring gator in the Atchafalaya swamp in Louisiana. He meets a new pal in Texas named Stony & finally discovers his purpose in going on the trip! The three syllable words are divided in this book to help young readers learn to read new vocabulary.
