MOOSE, a ninety-five-pound chocolate Lab, is a gentle giant who thinks he's a lap dog. Quite the worrier, Moose frets about visiting the vet, being separated from his parents, finding the perfect spot to hide his bone, passing time before his next meal . . . Basically, Moose worries about everything! When he's not worrying, his hobbies include swimming in the backyard pool, playing fetch, stealthily surfing the kitchen countertops, and enjoying armpit scratches.
