Is a dog really a man's best friend? In this delightfully acerbic and witty rumination on the highs and lows of being a dog owner, author Robert Drewe writes about his vexed relationship with the family dog - Ella, a German Shorthaired Pointer. In the process Drewe ranges almost as far and wide as the constantly roving Ella, musing on all aspects canine. As he says, he is "a dog-walker, who, frankly prefers humans. A dog-walker who decides to make the most of this begrudged walk to mull over writing ideas and dilemmas. A prickly, grumpy, even sometimes hungover dog-walker."
