Poor Lenore! None of the other animals at Bedlam Farm welcome her. Even Rose the border collie is too busy to play. But Lenore refuses to give up, and when she licks a grumpy ram named Brutus—right on the nose!—an unexpected friendship begins.
Jon Katz's irresistible photographs chronicle this true story of a dog determined to make friends.
