9780091928810: One Dog at a Time: Saving the Strays of Helmand

In a remote outpost of Now Zad, in Helmand Province, Pen Farthing's tour of duty will change his life forever, but for entirely unexpected reasons ...

Appalled by the horrors of a local dog fight, he intervenes to free the victims. One of these dogs finds his way into the Marine compound - and into Pen's heart. Soon other strays are being drawn to the sanctuary provided by Pen's makeshift pound, including one young mum who crawls under the compound fence carrying her newborn pups to safety.

But as his time in Helmand draws to an end, Pen cannot leave the dogs of Now Zad to their own fates. He begins hatching plans to help them escape to a better life.

Review:

" Pen Farthing is absolutely wonderful, really truly my kind of hero" (JILLY COOPER)

"Inspirational ... his compassion and dedication are a fine example to us all" ( Daily Mail)

"An inspiring tale. Heartwarming stuff" ( News of the World)

"An exciting, funny and moving book ... Nowzad, AK, Jena, Tali and their pups could melt a stone's heart" (Megan Rix Guardian)

"An emotional rollercoaster that will keep you turning the pages and reaching for the Kleenex - don't miss it -10/10" ( Your Dog)

From the Author:

I had no intention of writing a book. I was a Royal Marine who just wanted to get through my tour of duty in Afghanistan in one piece.
But then along came Nowzad. To most he was a fearsome Afghan fighting dog with no ears, but to me he was a dog that still had it in him to give humans a chance, even after all he had been through. He became my escape from the constant pressure of living and working in a remote `safe' house in the middle of Taliban occupied territory.
The one thing I hadn't planned though was Nowzad inviting along his mates! But I couldn't say no and so the journey began.
I wrote "One Dog at a Time" to share the story of the dogs of Now Zad and to try and hopefully inspire others to make a difference. For those of you that have bought this book, I would like to thank you very much. You are already helping the Nowzad Dogs' charity, formed with my wife upon my return from Afghanistan, as we are donating some of the proceeds from the sale of this book directly to the charity. I couldn't bring all the dogs of Now Zad home, but I am going to make sure I make a difference to those I left behind.
Pen F Jan 2009.
