`The Dog Blog' is a humorous view of modern life, as seen through the eyes of the family pet. Simon is an Old English Sheepdog with a difference. He has a wry take on life and is juggling his own insecurities with the ups and downs of family life.
Simon views the family situation from about waist high. His observations will resonate with the typical British family. To his owners, he's a lovable, bouncy canine - to the reader he's an insightful and thoughtful commentator. OK, so he swears a bit and is riddled with insecurities (aren't we all?) but that just makes him more lovable.
The book is unique, quirky and very funny. It also has considerable poignancy, as Simon witnesses the rise and fall of family relationships in a roller-coaster year. The dog experiences emotional highs and lows, struggling to stay loyal to the family's philandering father. Simon's role as `man's best friend' is tested to the limit.
From dreaming of skiing, through Valentines, Easter, summer holidays and moving house, everything is seen from the dog's perspective. He meets a donkey called Elvis. He shares a room with a goldfish. He's a faithful and lovable hero. Sometimes he's wise beyond his years, sometimes he's naive and often he's confused and amazed by human behaviour. The `humanoids' are oblivious to his knowledge.
They talk; he listens; and this is his first story.
