Mutt Dog

What can I say? Everyone loves Mutt Dog. A perpetual favourite! Dog lovers, savers and protectors around the world write to me and express how much this book means to them.

Once again it’s “basically” a true story (plus a little authors licence). I owned a dog called Muttley. He lived on the streets and kept visiting a halfway house where my sister was a volunteer worker. She knew I was a scruffy mutt and that together me and this dog would suit each other perfectly. Take note of the red headed character. It’s my wife, and you’ll soon notice she makes cameo’s in all my books.
