This is a story about a little yellow dog named Hank and his adventures on Cheery Heart Lane. Cheery Heart Lane is full of interesting characters and unforeseen adventures.

On one perfect Saturday, Hank and his not-so-friendly mouse companion are taken back by the wonder of a green bush.The bush is alive and Hank,

a loving and curious pup, wants to become it’s best friend.


It is a cool October day on Cheery Heart Lane and Hank is out enjoying the autumn air. The leaves are now turning a bright shade of red, yellow and orange and the wind is becoming colder.

Hank is on a new adventure when he runs into Rufus, the mouse that followed him about the neighborhood in his last outing.

In “Hark the Howl,” Hank learns the true meaning of Christmas from Mrs. Wiffle. The aroma of Christmas cookies fill the air and the sites and sounds of the Christmas season are felt all throughout Cheery Heart Lane. Hank finds that Christmas is more than just receiving gifts. It’s a time of giving, a time of joy, and a time of caring toward those he loves and those around him.


I invite you to share in this warm story of Hank’s Christmas adventure.

On this farm, Hank encounters farmer Dewey, a plump sort of fellow. There is also a surprise for Rufus. Come along and see what awaits Hank and Rufus on this new adventure in The Hidden Path.
