Template:Infobox Book Hairy Maclary's Bone, first published in 1984, is the second of the series of books by New Zealand author Lynley Dodd featuring Hairy Maclary. His adventures are usually in the company of his other animal friends who include the dachshund Schnitzel von Krumm, and belligerent solid grey tabby Scarface Claw.

Written for pre-school children, with rhythmic, rhyming text, it has become a best-selling bedtime storybook in New Zealand and Australia.

In this book, he is given a tasty bone from town butcher Samuel Stone and must get back to Donaldson's Dairy with it while fending off his five doggie chums - Hercules Morse the Great Dane, Muffin McLay the Old English Sheepdog, Bitzer Maloney the Greyhound, Bottomley Potts the Dalmatian and Schnitzel Von Krumm the Dachshund (with the very low tum).
