Harry is a lovable little pooch who lives with a sweet family in suburbia.
There's one thing you should know though: Harry hates taking a bath!
In Harry, the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion, Harry grabs the scrub brush his family uses on him when they give him a bath, runs down the stairs, and buries in the back yard.
Harry's adventure has just begun! He travels all over town, getting dirtier and dirtier. Finally, he heads home, but he is so dirty that his family doesn't recognize him.
Even when he does tricks, digs up the scrub brush, and tries to show his family his identity, they still don't recognize him. He is just too dirty.
