This book is the hilarious misadventures of a mutt who refused to be a dog. He climbed ladders, walked on the top of fences, dived for crayfish and hobnobed with skunks.
Set in Canada, this story of a boy and a dog takes place in the 30's.
Published by Pyramid Willow Books in 1968, from a Little, Brown ed. in 1957, it is, I believe intended for young adults, but enjoyable to a pet lover of any age.
