Mister Bud has a schedule. Things like wake-up time, nap time, snooze time, and shift-position-and-rest-some-more time are carefully planned. And everyone in his house follows his schedule. Then disaster: A strange dog comes home at make-a-fuss time and throws off the whole schedule! Zorro is his name. And he is bossy. Mister Bud and Zorro want nothing to do with each other— until they discover they like the same things. Everything becomes more fun with two…as long as everyone follows the schedule. Playful text and illustrations from a master animator give these two pups such personality, they’ll melt the hearts of dog-lovers everywhere.
