A lighthearted story. I love how Frazee sets her illustrations up. On one page you see Boot and all the things he is struggling with and then on the opposite page you see Shoe and everything that he is struggling with.

Story of two dogs; boot and shoe. Who do everything together, except one sits on the back porch in the day and the other the front porch. One day they chase a squirrel and end up on the opposite side of the house and wait for each other, they spend all day and all night waiting for the other one who never comes. But are brought back together by their "peeing tree" and are reunited. ( )

Boot and Shoe are two dogs that have done everything together since they were born. One day a squirrel starts trouble and they can't find each other. They don't want to move from each other's spots because they don't want to do anything without each other. Until they have to pee and go to their specified bush is, when they finally find each other.

Two dogs, born in the same litter, live together but have opposite but predictable preferences and routines. When a squirrel enters their lives one day, their worlds are turned upside down. It appears that chasing the squirrel has jumbled their routines. Desperate for the comfort of their counterparts, the dogs search for one another in their usual spots. However, because one is looking for the other, and vice versa, they find themselves in a seemingly endless search. That is until that finally discover each other the next day at their food dishes, a daily routine that they share with each other. This book is fun, but also carries the message that celebrates friendship and differences.

This is a simple story about two good dog friends that do everything together, eat sleep, pee except during the day one likes to sit on the front porch and one likes to sit on the back porch. This works well until one day a squirrel causes all sorts of havoc and the two dogs end up on the others porch. They sit and wait all day for the other one to return to the porch broken-hearted. They have almost given up hope in the morning when they separately go to their favorite tree to pee and lo and behold there they both are! The illustrations in the book are drawn with prismacolor pencil and gouache. They are realistic and the chase that the squirrel leads both dogs on is absolutely amazing! Readers of all ages are sure to enjoy this tale of friendship.
