The naming of dogs is a difficult matter, as Ogden and his big brother discover in this most charming of collaborations between Rhoda Levine and Edward Gorey. You see, the sheepdog was sitting patiently in the back yard when the family moved in. No one mentioned that there would be a sheepdog in the yard, but there he was. He seemed to be waiting for something, and the family, especially Ogden, is determined to find out what it is. Does the dog want dinner? a lollipop? a stray cat? conversation? No, what the dog wants is-a name! But you can't just choose any name for a grown-up dog. No, it has to be the right name. And with a little patience, and a lot of persistence, the brothers might just figure out just what that name is.
