Synopsis: 'Nobody writes dog stories better.Karen Charlton, author of 'The Heiress of Linn Hagh' 
By IPPY and Global Ebook Award Winner Jean Gill A dog's life in the south of France. From puppyhood, Sirius the Pyrenean Mountain Dog has been trying to understand his humans and train them with kindness.
How this led to their divorce he has no idea. More misunderstandings take Sirius to Death Row in an animal shelter, as a so-called dangerous dog learning survival tricks from the other inmates. During the twilight barking, he is shocked to hear his brother's voice but the bitter-sweet reunion is short-lived. Doggedly, Sirius keeps the faith. 

One day, his human will come. View the book trailer; animal, dog, story, true story, memoir, dog adoption, dog training, problems, behaviour, animal shelter, humor, France, Great Pyrenees, love story

From the Author: I've always loved dogs and as well as observing my own Pyrenean Mountain dogs, I've read thousands of true stories from dog-owners, many of whom need help. I read the Pyrenean rescue forums and one particular dog's story touched me so deeply that I couldn't put him out of mind. This dog was the basis for the story of Sirius but I included true stories of other dogs, both funny and sad. Everything in this book is true but it didn't all happen to one dog. My own male Betel provided some of the stories, and that's his beautiful face on the book jacket. My female, Blanche, injected a lot of her character into Sirius' sister, Snow. 

I really hope that the story will touch people, as I was touched, and that it will also make them think. I was lucky enough to work with top French dog-trainer, Michel Hasbrouck, after I translated his bestseller into English as 'Gentle Dog Training'. From him, I learned so much about how we accidentally train dogs to behave 'badly' and I thought it would be interesting to show this from a dog's viewpoint. By the end of four months writing this book, I was a dog, and if any of my readers feel the same way, then I think I've succeeded.
