Hi! I’m Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman. After marrying a cattle rancher, moving to the country, and having babies for ten years, I started a blog on a whim in 2006. There, I shared stories from my childhood, photos of my children growing up in the country, and eventually, recipes I cooked for my family. This eventually led to my first cookbook, which was released in 2009, and two cookbooks since. I love writing about food (and taking photos of food!) both in my cookbooks and on my website. I also love eating the food I write about!
I have enjoyed writing a series of children’s picture books based on my very lethargic and malodorous Basset Hound named Charlie. “Charlie the Ranch Dog” has been a sweet experience for me.
He’s a ranch dog. Breakfast is his life, especially when bacon is involved. Charlie has dangly ears, floppy skin, and big fat paws. And he loves living in the country. That’s because he works like a dog…fixing fences, gardening, and helping his family out on the range.
Yep, it’s all work, all the time for Charlie the ranch dog. In fact, he’s probably working right now…
A ranch dog’s work is never done!
Come along as Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, introduces us to her beloved short-legged pioneer dog named Charlie.
