If you loved Nigel by Monty Don, you'll love this book!
In this book for dog lovers everywhere, Jonathan Wittenberg says his dogs have taught him -- more than anything else -- how to appreciate the wonderful world in which we live -- and how to develop better relationships with his friends and families.
In this wonderful, warm account of one man and his dog, Jonathan brings all the big themes of friendship, faithfulness, kindness, cruelty, grief, prayer and spiritual companionship to the fore, and shows
us how we can learn so much from a dog's approach to life.
If you're one of the 8.5 million dog owners in the UK the answer to a better way of living may already be under your roof.
Jonathan Wittenberg shares with dog lovers everywhere his inability to resist the big, brown-eyed look which says, 'I'll melt your heart if you even think of going out without me', and the security he feels on a twenty-mile trek across the bleak Scottish Highlands with not a soul for a friend but his border collie.
A good read if you enjoyed Think Dog: The bestselling guide to canine psychology.
