From the article:

"Hank is the central character in the “Hank the Cowdog” book series by John R. Erickson of Perryton. Like the author, Hank lives on a ranch in Perryton — 377 miles from Fort Worth in the Texas Panhandle. Hank calls himself “Head of Ranch Security” and solves cases on his ranch.
On Friday evening, Erickson was to be honored as a 2019 inductee into the Texas Literary Hall of Fame, which was founded by the Friends of the Fort Worth Library in 2004. Plaques with each year’s honorees are on display in the west hall of the Fort Worth Central Library. The plaques are displayed under mural called, “Texas Tales,” painted by Marjory Stark Buckley.Well-known authors include Laura Bush, Sandra Cisneros, Jim Wright and Larry McMurtry. “I will be in with some very important names in Texas writing,” he told the Star-Telegram Friday morning. “It’s a great honor.”
