Nobody\'s Dog

Nobody's Dog

(1999)
A novel by

 
Colin Dann's award-winning Animals of Farthing Wood and White Deer Park series have breathed life into the bookshelves of many a child since their first publication, and continue to charm and educate new generations of readers as the years go by.

His latest offering, Nobody's Dog, reeks of Dann's usual charm and talent, and this time comes bang up to date with the story of a dog who finds himself living on the streets after being abandoned by the family he loved.

Digby, the hero of the piece, is a beautiful border collie who began his life in a loving home with his brother. But Digby was "jangly": a nervous puppy who was sometimes difficult to cope with. After spending time in a dogs home, he finds a new master in Frank, a young homeless man, but it is not long before Digby is forced to struggle for survival alone, and embarks on a journey to find the person who loves him the most.

A moving and at times totally heartbreaking tale, Nobody's Dog is much more than an animal story. Through the plight of Digby, readers are taken on an emotionally charged journey that allows them to eavesdrop on a harsh and unfair world that sometimes leaves people--and pets--alone and without hope. Dann's extraordinary talent for understanding his animals and their surroundings shines through once more in this brilliantly executed and thoroughly modern tale of a life through the eyes of a trusting and loving animal. (Ages 7- 11) --Susan Harrison
