Bedtime Buckaroos: “Charlie the Ranch Dog”

Join us as we spark imaginations by hosting virtual bedtime stories with “Bedtime Buckaroos,” presented by Paycom.

Storytime plays a vital role in introducing children to the magic of books. Each week we’ll feature a new engaging Western story read by local authors, community leaders, traditional storytellers and Museum staff.

This week, listen to Makenzi Northenor, the Manager of the Annie Oakley Society, read “Charlie the Ranch Dog” by Ree Drummond.

“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.”

About the Reader

Hello! My name is Makenzi Northenor and I am the manager of the Annie Oakley Society here at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage museum. I am so excited to be a part of Bedtime Buckaroos. Some fun facts about myself are that I went to school in London, my favorite season is winter, and my favorite Western historical figure is, of course, Annie Oakley! I hope you enjoy my reading of Charlie the Ranch Dog!
