Wryly comic and strangely moving. (Daily Mail)

A beautiful evocation of the relationship between dog and owner, which doesn't lapse into the sentimentality so common in the books that people write about their pets. (Sunday Telegraph)

Best animal book ever, by a literary agent bonkers about his Alsatian bitch. (Evening Standard)
