Description

Following the success of If The Cat Fits...Stories of a Vet's Wife, Chrystal Sharp is back with more heart-warming and hilarious tales about her husband and son and their ever-growing family of animals. Dog In My Footsteps covers a further five years in Chrystal's life, and we are reunited with Philby the cat (who abandons leopard hunting for seagull spotting) and Whippy the greyhound (who prefers kittens to puppies). Some of the older members of the family pass on, while others join the household. Amongst the new arrivals are a parrot who suffers a stroke, a Dobermann straight from hell, and a feline sitting tenant who comes with the family's new home. Apart from the domestic species, the family learns to cope with a variety of sick and injured wildlife - some of them very wild indeed! There are African penguins, barn owl chicks, a black eagle and a seal who is aptly named smash. Although poignant at times, Dog In My Footsteps is a peek into the lives of a quirky, not-too-conventional family whose relationship with animals is anything but dull.
