Alas, my local library doesn't have a copy of the audio edition, so I had to check out their printed copy of The Case of the One-Eyed Killer Stud Horse. While it was nice seeing more of the illustrations than the cover, I really missed Mr. Erickson's narration, the old-time background music, and the sound effects. I wish I could have heard Hank singing, 'Thank You, Lord, for Making Gals,' and Sally May singing 'A Fundamental Disagreement'.

Still, I got to laugh at Hank's misinterpretations of situations. (Yes, Hank, it was partially your fault that Sally May got hurt. If you'd heeded her warning, you wouldn't have been in her way -- even if her reaction would have gotten her in trouble with the SPCA.) Had to feel for Sally May -- that dedication was the least Mr. Erickson could do after what he put her through in this book. On the other hand, I didn't feel sorry for Pete the Barncat, even though I like cats more than I like dogs.

Little Alfred's cousins are nice girls (enjoyed Hank's remark about Little Alfred by way of contrast). I liked Grandma Loper as the Voice of Experience, especially the remark she made about her son, High. ( )

Hank must defend the ranch against Tuerto, the one-eyed killer stud horse from the ranch next door. I love the part where Hank throws up on Sally Mae's shoe, just as Sally Mae is preparing for a visit from her mother-in-law. ( )

First words
It's me again, Hank the Cowdog.
Those gals were quite a contrast to Alfred, the ornery little stinkpot, who was your typical three-year-old boy made of snails and rails and puppy dog tails, gunpowder, lizards, toad frogs, and a dash of alligator juice. [Hank, chapter ten]
