Bad Dog Bubba. is the first of a three books series about a dog, Bubba (a Blood-rhymes-with-dude-Hound) trying to get his pals to love the blues. Bubba’s owner is a bonafide Louisiana blues man named Beau Beau Blue Hat Bobbie, who has instilled his dog with a love for the blues that he just has to share! Bubba tells his friends, “The blues is like a half-eatern sandwich you find lying on the sidewalk. Give it a sniff and you might like it!.”
This book introduces the main characters and sets the stage for the next book, which is about the trials and tribulations of forming a dog blues band. Book three is about how the band, with its growing popularity, handles its success and struggles to stay on track with its mission to bring the blues to dogs all across the world!
The project stems from my 2016 music album, Doggone Blues, original songs about dogs who get the blues. This was a fundraiser I did for the newly established Blues Foundation’s Blues Hall of Fame. The dogs in each of those songs appear as characters in this book series. This album is available for purchase on line at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/tascru8
