Horse Meets Dog by Elliott Kalan is laugh out loud funny. Horse and dog spend the book trying to convince each other they are what they are not. The illustrations perfectly capture the frustrations each experience as they try and figure out what is going on. The dog thinks the horse has lost his paws and horse doesn't understand why the dog's tail is not flowing and long. How can they get along? A bird arrives at the end to pronounce them both “weird” looking birds.
