"the Story of Rowdy" is about a real dog who actually lives in a recreational vehicle and travels throughout the country with his people. Most of the events related are true, with the exception of Chapter 15. The birthday party did happen, but not exactly as written here. Chapter 20 is also partly fiction to make the event more interesting.
Rowdy is an intelligent, dearly loved little fellow, who has many friends in many places and is known by his name even when his human owner's names are not readily recognized.
Everybody Knows Rowdy
I have written this book because this little dog was mistreated as a puppy and sent to four different homes before he found his forever home.
