Synopsis

From the instant they spotted the forlorn puppy in the kennel, as she stared at them with her intense eyes, Cindy and Peter Martin knew she was the one for them. Almost immediately, Perth became a central part of the household, a dog for all dogs. Always left to run free, Perth became an indefatigable explorer, often gone for hours or entire days, but her infallible compass always brought her back home. From her adoption in upstate New York, her incredible survival in the wilderness of Vermont to her later adventures in the English countryside, Perth displayed the same devotion, unshakable trust, and unstinting love. An entertaining, beautifully written homage to a very special dog.
