Scooter, the Cow Dog: A Time to Listen and Learn
The mountain lion roared a terrifying snarl as it jumped from the big rock and landed in front of Fifi. Katie screamed. Then suddenly there was a flash, a blur of black and white.
Ten-year-old Katie Collins didn’t like to listen to her parents and do her chores. She considered herself grown up and shouldn’t have to do those things. Neither did her pet dog Fifi. They didn’t like getting dirty either. So when her parents decided to send her and Fifi to stay a few weeks with her grandparents on a working cattle ranch in South Texas, Katie wasn’t happy. And if Katie wasn’t happy then Fifi decided she wouldn’t be happy either. When Scooter, the ranch’s semi-retired cow dog saw them arrive on the ranch, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Their reluctance to listen and learn on a busy Texas ranch would soon lead to all kinds of misadventures . . . including a chance meeting with a large, hungry mountain lion.
