“The Remarkable Story of Willie the Crow” continues the adventures of the Hickory Doc’s Tales! Find out about the unlikely friendship between hunting dogs and an extraordinary crow named Willie.

The pack at The Lazy Dog Hacienda includes five dogs: Doc, the oldest and wisest; Zeke, his annoying younger brother; Patch, Doc’s daughter; Rush, Doc’s son; and Newt, a black Lab who is part of the family.

One day, when Doc and Patch are napping on the porch, a young black crow swoops down and lands on Patch’s head. This is how the dogs meet Willie, a crow with bad eyesight who becomes the particular friend of Patch.

Although the other dogs don’t like Willie very much, Doc knows Patch can learn a lot about birds by playing with the crow. Then one day, Patch accidentally falls into the swimming pool and isn’t able to get out. Doc and Zeke can’t swim, so Willie is sent to find Newt to rescue Patch. Will he make it in time?
