Hackman or 'Hack' to his friends, family and shrink, is very set in his ways. Rarely stuck for an answer, he feels he has a Sgt Bilko rapier-like wit, but deep down, he's as insecure as the rest of us. He worries about being laughed at and assumes he's part of a 'con' before it happens.This gives him a very blinkered view of life...and the bucket doesn't help either!! His persistent 'medical problem' means the continual wearing of his 'bucket' and leads to constant visits to a pet shrink of dubious repute.Follow his hilarious adventures in our first two pocket books and get a rare insight into the messed up world of this adorable bucket-wearing spaniel, whose character appeals to young and old alike...the young love his cuteness, and teenagers and adults empathize with his numerous insecurities and problems.
