Fun as an audio book. It just took a long time to get to the missing cat part of the title. Probably not the strongest story in the series but fun for driving around town.

That cat, Pete, thinks he’s pretty smart. But he’s just made a losing bet, yes siree. He was foolish enough to bet that Hank, the wonderful amazing stupendously unbelievably fit cowdog can’t catch a rabbit in three tries. The stupidity! The fact that Hank will gain nothing from the bet if he wins and Pete will be the new Head of Ranch Security if he loses doesn’t faze him in the least. How could he possibly lose?

Easily, it turns out. And now, with Pete installed as the new Head of Ranch Security

Turns out this was my first plunge into Hank-the-Cowdog-land and it earned five stars (VERY RARE for me) for entertainment value alone. Whoot! Whoot! In this episode (performed superbly on audio by the author with orchestration throughout) the age-old rivalry of the dog and the cat is hilariously explored.

I read pretty much this entire series years ago after I descovered them in my elementary school libary. The plot, and characters are great. Plus these books are extremly funny. I loved this series then and I still love it.

In this volume Hank, a proud and loveable cowdog, takes on his nemesis Pete the wily cat. In the end, Hank severely disciplines Pete but then has mercy on him saving him from two coyotes. Quick read, especially suited for young kids.
