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.
