sniffed me awake

From good dogs to bad, adored pets to hard-working sheep dogs, canine companions have not only settled into New Zealand hearts but also into their books. Author Stephanie Johnson — herself an owner of a long line of mutts — has brought together an entertaining mix of writing. This collection includes both the old and new, and ranges over poetry, short stories and non-fiction.

You’ll meet Kevin Ireland’s little hound Mighty Sid, Sue Orr’s Lakeland terrier Buddy, and Michele Leggott’s guide dog Olive. You’ll learn about the early delicacy served up to Captain Cook, what the Cote d’Azur smells like to Charlotte Grimshaw, and Joe Bennett’s advice that ‘The correct way to teach your dog not to climb onto your bed is to sleep on the floor.’

Please note this copy has light fading on the spine and a protective cover over the dust jacket.
