Old Favorite/New Favorite: Puppy edition

The old favorite for this week is a definite blast from the past. It's that classic Little Golden Book "The Poky Little Puppy". Do you remember this book. It's definitely one of my favorite of all the Little Golden Books.

My new favorite is something that just struck me yesterday. I kept looking at our new puppy pal Rocky and could not figure out why this little guy looked so familiar. And then it hit me. Rocky is a dead ringer for the Poky Little Puppy. Especially in his curious and bumbling actions. I can't help but think that a dog just like Rocky was Janette Sebring Lowrey's inspiration behind this timeless classic.
