Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

[dawg, dog]
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie is the sixth book in the Hank the Cowdog series of children's novels by John R. Erickson. It is preceded by Faded Love and followed by The Curse of the Incredible Priceless Corncob.

Like almost all the Hank the Cowdog books, this one begins with Hank saying, "It's me again, Hank the Cowdog."

The characters are: Hank the Cowdog, Drover, High Loper, Sally May, and dog named Ralph (although Hank keeps calling him Clyde).


There's been another murder, this time a chicken. Hank has no clues, and the mystery seems impossible. Then suddenly Beulah's pickup shows up and Hank bites at the tires. Beulah's owner kicks Hank over a ledge and encounters Ralph They have an argument on what his name is, then Hank goes back to the ranch. He then accidentally eats a chicken and Loper catches him. Loper locks him in a shed. And of course Hank escapes. Then he sees Drover, and remembers about the chicken murder. He then says everyone "Should let sleeping dogs lie." The story ends there.
