The Toughest Cowboy
by John Frank

Cowboy Grizz Brickbottom is the toughest cowboy. He flosses his teeth with barbed wire and picks his nose with his spurs. But, Grizz is becoming discontented with his life as a cowpoke and his disgusting friends who have no manners. He longs for a different kind of companion, one that is soft and sweet, one that will give him kisses. What he gets isn't exactly what he had in mind but, nevertheless, turns out to be precisely what he and his ranch hands need the most.
