DescriptionWe've all done it-sat there and wondered what our canine companions were thinking while staring at the television with us during a ball game. Ponder no more! Irrepressible golden retrievers Parker and Dixie Ames have made it their mission to take you inside the dugout for a dog's-eye view of the innings and outings of the great game of softball. Assisted by their Siberian husky pal Lucy McMan-West, an obliging cast of canine cohorts, a chicken, a turtle, and a llama named LaRue, the dynamic duo reminds us that softball is not about winning or losing-it's about finding the shortest route to the concession stand. Filled with quirky explanations and colorful photo illustrations, Digging for Home is a tasty ballpark treat that's packed with heart, hilarity, and plenty of doggone good fun.
