9780751533316: Buster's Diaries

BUSTER'S DIARIES - offer a unique floor-level insight into the aromatic world of the man-owning dog. Buster stepped into the limelight in April 1996 after an incident with a goose in St James's Park, a goose which happened to belong to the Queen. Pursued by the press ever since, he has sought solace in writing. He details the absurdities of his life with The Man, who clearly wants to be a dog, but lacks the necessary qualities. The blood of the tundra wolves roars through Buster's veins and demands he hold strong views on the role and status of the fin-de-siecle dog. BUSTER'S DIARIES expose the truth about such man-made fallacies as diet, discipline and exercise. They also extol the joys of human-ownership and are written with the wit and style that is expected of his amanuensis.

About the Author:

Buster was educated privately by an ex-RAF dog handler and began to dictate his diaries shortly after his arrival from the Animal Rescue -having cogent views and wide-ranging interests. He died in autumn 2009. Roy Hattersley has written fifteen previous books and has won the Guardian television award for journalist of the year.

Review:

LUCIE NAYLOR, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW When Buster the cross-bred Staffordshire Bull Terrier was attacked by a goose belonging to the Queen, his resulting act of self-defence (from which the bird never recovered) was so widely misreported in the press that Buster became an instant celebrity. One court appearance and a GBP75 fine later, Roy Hattersley and his companion were consigned to the criminal ranks. But that was not the end of the matter, as journalists pursued the pair through the parks of London. Determined to put his side of the story forward, Buster decided at last to put paw to paper and his Diaries, as told to Roy Hattersley are the result. * From his lowly beginnings as a street pup and rescue dog, Buster charts his heady rise to the sophistication of SW1. Hotels, living with The Man and mealtimes that She dictates are only a few of the obstacles Buster has to negotiate. But negotiate them he * A must read for every dog owner * Sunday Tribune IRELAND * Un-put-downable, highly amusing...A perfect Christmas present * DOG WORLD *
