Ethel is a lonely dog.  She lives in the backyard and wishes her family would pet and play with her.  When a nice lady moves in next door, Ethel jumps the fence to make a new friend and has an adventure that finally brings her the love she wants. 

Children are sure to fall in love with Ethel, whose fate is common to large dogs that are brought home as small puppies.  They grow and grow, and soon spend most of their lives in the backyard ... all alone.  Ethel gets a second chance and her journey is one that will capture young hearts! 

The illustrations are pen and ink with spot color that can be added to with crayon or color pencil for a full color spectrum.
