When a racing greyhound becomes ill she is abandoned by her racing kennels. She finds herself scratching a hard living on the streets. A former cruel owner catches sight of her when he visits the town. She knows that she must escape from him. The dog runs from the town and wanders wearily along a road which leads her to Humpty's door.
Humpty is a kind man who has spent many years with only the birds' and animals' of the fields and woods for company. He and the dog are amazed to find that they can understand each other's speech. Humpty asks the dog to share his life. The dog soon realises that she has found love and her forever home with Humpty.
On their very first outing together a frightening incident with a wild boar leads to a new friendship with a cantankerous old parrot who defends the dog from the wild beast. The threesome sets out on many adventures together after finding a magic sword on a haunted island. The sword tells them of its life in the sixteenth century and of its need to establish the circumstances behind its Master's murder.
Their quest to establish the truth leads them into dangers, mystical adventures and encounters with paranormal beings.
Humpty finds that his life is full of all kinds of people some of whom become his friends while others will always be foes. The dog's life blossoms further when she finds a barely alive dog that she is determined to restore to full health.

This novel has been written for eight to twelve year old children but adults who love dogs may find the novel a relaxing read.

There are 76,883 words in this book.

A paperback copy of the book is available through Amazon, the Kerry Greyhound Connection and the Retired Greyhound Trust of Great Britain.

Emma Greyling, the author of this tale, lives in England on the North Norfolk coast with her husband and two retired greyhounds. Her motivation for writing the novel was based on her adoption of a three legged greyhound from a small Charity that saves Irish greyhounds from being killed after their brief working lives. Emma has, and will continue to donate the royalties and profits from this book to the Kerry Greyhound Connection and other animal charities.

From the Author:

The Mystical Life of the dog with Three Legs is my first book. I could not have written it without the help of my beautiful, three legged, adopted greyhound. She died before the book was published but her image lives on. She is the main character in the book alongside the main human character. The human character resembles Silas Marner, at least that is how I chose to depict him.
I am now working on my third book of giant stories and have published two collections. My next full length novel is going to be a fantasy, science fiction book for children. I shall complete this novel nect year.

About the Author:

Emma Greyling is a retired lawyer who decided to devote at least ten years of her retirement to writing fiction books with the aim of making money for the charities that she supports. She is three years into the project and has published three books. Emma has now begun to market the books through Amazon Kindle. Marketing will, she says, take at least a year to 'get going.' Despite the time now spent in marketing, she aims to publish her third collection of giant stories in Autumn 2012.
