'Perth was a dog larger than life. She bought us adventure, drama and joy. She changed us forever.' This is the moving story of a dog called Perth through the twenty-one years of her life, beginning in the woods and lakes of upstate New York in the mid sixties, and moving to the mid west and Florida and then to the countryside of England. This is a wonderful story as much about Perth's owners as about Perth herself. Beautifully written, it will bring tears to the eyes of dog lovers everywhere.
