Boating with Buster - The Life and Times of a Barge Beagle (Paperback): Alison Alderton Boating with Buster - The Life and Times of a Barge Beagle (Paperback)
Alison Alderton
R500 R390 Discovery Miles 3 900 Save R110 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Amidst a crisis, Alison feels life's not worth living, but Buster, a Beagle puppy, will change everything... Acquiring Lily, a Dutch barge, Alison and her husband, Roger, head for the calmness of the inland waterways. Boating with Buster, they learn plenty about boisterous Beagles and bothersome boats! Redundancy triggers a move to Ireland where the characters are larger-than-life, and the lakes so huge they are known as inland seas. They become custodians of a historical property, partake in milestone boating events, and go ice-breaking in the coldest winter for fifty years. A move to Europe seems to be the chance of a lifetime, but tragedy strikes when Buster develops a debilitating illness. Watching the world go by aboard Lily aids Buster's recuperation, as they travel through the Netherlands and Germany: spending long summer days on the Mecklenburg Lakes and winter in the former Eastern bloc. Finally, they cross the Baltic Sea to enter Danish waters. Buster's story flows through the waterways of Europe in this colourfully portrayed, moving book of canine companionship. A memoir written in first person, Boating with Buster is a charming `tail' that readers who enjoy animal stories, travel and boating will delight in.

For his compassionate part in helping animals have lives that matter, he quickly becomes a media celebrity, and is even rewarded by royalty at Buckingham Palace. Many characters and events in Doggie's story are real, as the photos show. Charming, original illustrations by the author seamlessly blend reality and fantasy. Doggie's story, with Lily, Pilot and Anne, shows the value of love and friendship.

From the moment in 1918 when Corporal Lee Duncan discovers Rin Tin Tin on a World War I battlefield, he recognizes something in the pup that he needs to share with the world. Rin Tin Tin's improbable introduction to Hollywood leads to the dog's first blockbuster film and over time, the many radio programs, movies, and television shows that follow. The canine hero's legacy is cemented by Duncan and a small group of others who devote their lives to keeping him and his descendants alive. At its heart, Rin Tin Tin is a poignant exploration of the enduring bond between humans and animals. But it is also a richly textured history of twentieth-century entertainment and entrepreneurship and the changing role of dogs in the American family and society. Almost ten years in the making, Susan Orlean's first original book since The Orchid Thief is a tour de force of history, human interest, and masterful storytelling - the ultimate must-read for anyone who loves great dogs or great yarns.

Donald McCaig
R289 R235 Discovery Miles 2 350 Save R54 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The "New York Times"-bestselling author Donald McCaig has established an expansive literary career, founded equally on books about working sheepdogs and the Civil War novels "Jacob's Ladder" and "Rhett Butler's People, " the official sequel to "Gone with the Wind."

In his new book, "Mr. and Mrs. Dog, " McCaig draws on twenty-five years of experience raising sheepdogs to vividly describe his--and his dogs June and Luke's--unlikely progress toward and participation in the World Sheepdog Trials in Wales.

McCaig engagingly chronicles the often grueling experience--through rain, snow, ice storms, and brain-numbing heat--of preparing and trialing Mrs. Dog, June, "a foxy lady in a slinky black-and-white peignoir," and Mr. Dog, Luke, "a plain worker--no flash to him." Along the way, he relays sage advice from his decades spent talking with America's most renowned dog experts, from police-dog trainers to positive-training gurus.

As readers of McCaig's novels will expect, "Mr. and Mrs. Dog" delivers far more than straightforward dog-training tips. Revealing an abiding love and respect for his dogs, McCaig unveils the life experiences that set him on the long road to the Welsh trial fields. Starting with memories of his first dog, Rascal, and their Montana roadtrip in a '48 Dodge, McCaig leads us into his thirties, when he abandons his New York advertising career to move to a run-down Appalachian sheep farm in the least populous county in Virginia. This 1960s agrarian adventure ultimately brings McCaig, Luke, and June to the Olympics of sheepdog trials. In his narration of one man's love for his dogs, McCaig offers a powerful portrayal of the connection between humans and their animal companions.

Partners celebrates the diversity of the canine contribution to our species, providing the reader with heart-warming stories of loyalty, perseverance and courage. Written by people who learned to trust their lives to the senses of a dog, and highlighting true examples of working dog behaviour, it enables all dog lovers to understand the inborn senses and instincts of their dog, which man can shape to his benefit. Instincts tie these stories together: Bart finding a child lost on a mountain, Traveler pulling his blind partner from the path of a moving car, and Truman soothing the souls of abused children. With specific explanations of physiological attributes and innate characteristics - such as olfactory prowess, survival instincts, and intelligent disobedience - plus quotes from fifty canine professionals chronicling working dog behaviors, Partners demonstrates the similarities between the behaviour of a tender Cocker Spaniel who brought an abused child back to reality, and a tough law enforcement K9 who assured his handlers safety. This is the story Partners delivers - unity.

Bark! The Herald Angels Sing - The Dogs of Christmas (Hardcover): Peter Thorpe Bark! The Herald Angels Sing - The Dogs of Christmas (Hardcover)
Peter Thorpe
R235 Discovery Miles 2 350 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Decked out in Christmas garb, set against evocative backgrounds-from Charles Dickens's London to the ice floes of Antarctica-an adorable dog strikes a pose. The scenes aren't always ornate: Peter Thorpe's first dog Christmas shoot involved his dog, a pair of antlers and a red nose. From Rudolph in 1990 to Santa in 2015, his dogs, donned in festive costumes, have adorned cards every December. In Bark! The Herald Angels Sing, the photographs-and outtakes-include Paddy as a tree-topper and Raggles dressed as Ebenezer Scrooge. Thorpe made his own sets and props, and used no digital retouching. Describing his inspiration for each card, with humour he suggests how readers might attempt to capture the scenes with their pups.
