Synopsis

Walking Ollie Or Winning the Love of a Difficult Dog by Stephen Foster

One winter's afternoon, Stephen Foster walked into a dog re-homing centre with the intention of picking up a retired greyhound. Instead, he acquired an abandoned lurcher pup. Foster's knowledge of dogs was so vague that he had to look up 'lurcher' in key reference work The Giant Book of the Dog , to find out what sort of animal was coming to join the family. His research counted for little: the new arrival did not conform to any known breed standard, or indeed any standard whatsoever that might be considered dog-normal. Walking Ollie is a hilarious - and often heartrending - account of one man's attempt to turn a psychotic wild animal into something resembling a domestic pet.

Reviews

Ollie is trouble. But he is also a joy. So is reading about him. Walking Ollie is the best book about a dog for... let us say eight years. Roy Hattersley, Guardian
