Good Dog, Carl and we read it again and again and again.... It's a picture book with no words past, "be a good dog Carl" and then later, "Good dog Carl" but it has the best pictures! The premise of the story is the mom leaves the house and leaves the dog to watch the baby in the crib, however they escape and have a rumpus about the house that ends in a very messy baby being washed by a dog and put back to bed (see photo left- LOVE the hair dryer photo!) and she returns to find the house clean and the baby in the crib just like she left him. "Good dog, Carl!" This is the dog I need!
