The Bad Dog's Diary A Year in the Life of Blake: Lover... Fighter... Dog by Martin Howard

Blake is a loveable mongrel just trying to lead a happy life; he loves his owner, fiercely defends his territory against interlopers (including the owner's new lady friend and her cat), does his best to avoid the frequently threatened neutering and spends a lot of his time either scooting across the carpet or chasing local tail. It really is a dog's life, and Blake has kindly taken the time to keep a diary of a year in his own life - providing a hilarious, unputdownable glimpse into the mind and world of your average mutt.This is the very successful diary of Blake the mongrel, now in paperback! It provides what every dog-lover needs for a summer read! It features fantastic quirky illustrations throughout. It is a unique addition to the always-popular diary genre.

He lives in the south of France with his wife, three children, two cats and the inspiration for this book, a half labrador-half husky called Satch.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
