This is the follow up to Walking Ollie, a very funny and heartfelt tale about taking on a rescue dog. After the challenges Ollie presented Foster thought a canine friend for his dog would be a good idea. Dylan however turns out to be just as much of a handful and pushes Ollie back in to his anti-social shell. Whether or not you are a dog owner there is plenty to find funny and moving in this touching book about man and dogs trying to live happily ever after. A real treat of a book.

Synopsis

Along Came Dylan by Stephen Foster

Having cured (well, just about...) his rescue dog Ollie of his neuroses and crackpot habits, Stephen Foster might have been expected to take a break. In Foster’s view though, there was still something missing from his dog’s world: Ollie needed a playmate, someone to talk to, someone to understand him.

‘If you must get another one, at least get a girl,’ everybody said. But Dylan is a boy, a pure Saluki boy. And he’s a lunatic. The moment the new pup walked in the door, Ollie threw his master a look of contemptuous disbelief. It was a look that said,‘I refuse to have anything whatsoever to do with this.You’re on your own, pal.’

In the riotously funny Along came Dylan, Stephen Foster picks up where Walking Ollie left off. Instead of one difficult dog, he’s got two. Where Ollie sees a threat, Dylan sees a challenge - and Foster finds himself forever somewhere in the middle, trying to work out why they can’t just all be friends...
