Stick Dog Wants A Hot Dog
by Tom Watson
Stick Dog Wants a Hot Dog, is Tom Watson’s hilarious sequel to Stick Dog, Stick Dog returns with the same crew of friends, and they’re hungrier than ever. As the dogs embark on their quest for hot dogs, they learn they’re not the only ones on a mission—a band of raccoon’s are following close behind, and they’re ravenous, too!
In this second book, Stick Dog and his four friends, Poo-Poo, Mutt, Stripes, and Karen, must execute a master plan for stealing hot dogs. The closer they get to the hot dog vendor, the more difficult their mission becomes. With the same hilarious antics, the five dogs are met with many challenges along the way, including having to distract the frankfurter guy and Karen getting locked in a human’s house. No matter what, these dogs have their eyes—and stomachs—on the prize.
In this second book, Stick Dog is at it again—and he’s hungrier than ever. He and his four friends, Poo-Poo, Mutt, Stripes, and Karen, must execute a master plan to steal some hot dogs. But the closer they get to the hot-dog vendor, the more obstacles they meet, including:
- A team of raccoon’s that wants the hot dogs too
- Hot-dog-snatching plans that are a little, umm, not so hot
- A dog-napping . . . sort of
Readers will delight once again as Stick Dog and his gang of goofballs work to overcome these challenges and more—to satisfy their hunger for hot dogs.
Stick Dog is the leader of this group of stray dogs. He helps them find food to eat. He’s very, very patient when his friends ideas are, umm, not so good. He lives in a big empty, dry pipe that runs under Highway 16 in the suburbs.
He got his name because Tom doesn’t know how to draw very well. He draws stick-figure dogs the way most people draw stick people. For the final books, Ethan Long (a MUCH better drawer than Tom) takes Tom’s original sketches and makes them look, ahem, a bit better. Okay, a lot better.
Karen is the dachshund. She gets lost sometimes because she’s so short. She really likes barbecue potato chips. She once lived in the back of a French-Asian fusion restaurant. Karen loves to chase her tail. She has caught it only once in her life. It was a glorious day.
Poo-Poo is not named after, you know, going to the bathroom. He got his name because he’s a poodle. He’s really good at smelling things. And he’s even better at describing those smells. He grew up on a dairy farm. Poo-Poo is very good at smashing his head into things – on purpose. One more thing: He really doesn’t like squirrels. Really. A lot.
Stripes is a Dalmatian. She’s very fast. She also gets freaked out pretty easily. She’s quite athletic and can jump and bounce all over the place. Stick Dog met Stripes when she was fired from her job as a security dog at the mall. She says it was because of the ‘nacho cheese grande incident.’ She refuses to give any details.
Mutt is a mutt. He is quite sensitive. He once lived with a mailman named Gary. He doesn’t remember how he got to the suburbs, but does remember something about being delivered in a package. He LOVES riding in a car. Mutt stores (and sometimes loses) things in his fur. He can howl really loud. He eats almost anything when he’s hungry, like socks, Frisbees, tennis balls – those kinds of things.
