Description

Jean Gill has captured the innermost thoughts of this magnificent animal.' Les Ingham, Pyr International

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.

Review quote

'Jean Gill has captured the innermost thoughts of this magnificent animal.' Les Ingham, Pyr International 'Nobody writes dog stories better.' Karen Charlton, the Detective Lavender Mysteries 'This book makes you feel, respect, cherish, accept and fight for the treasures of life. It almost makes me wish dogs could read it too, ' Anita Kovacevik, The Threshold 'Funny, touching, heartfelt and memorable, this is one of those books that should have a 'must read' tag on its cover. All in all, it is a good entertaining book with a great message.' MWB Review 'The way Jean Gill speaks for the dogs, in beautiful writing with illuminating narrative and dialogue, I felt like I understood everything the dogs were thinking/saying to each other. I recognized so much of these dogs' behaviors in my own dog, which was touching. I truly recommend this beautiful and thoroughly entertaining book!' Ulla Hakanson, The Price of Silence 'Thank you for the wonderful experience of being in a dog's head. I've often wondered what a dog's world was all about. Now I know.' Claire Stibbe, The 9th Hour 'Enchanting, moving, well-constructed, informative without being heavy. There should be a book like this for every breed.' Michel Hasbrouck, international dog trainer and author of Gentle Dog Training 'I've never read anything like it. Very entertaining.' Dr Florence Guérin, dog breeder and Crufts winner with her O Nut Glen Irish terriers 'When I finished reading 'Someone to Look Up To', I have to say all my review remarks seemed silly, mere words. This book makes you feel, respect, cherish, accept and fight for the treasures of life. A beautiful, loving story - it will more than live up to your expectations.' Anita Kovacevik, The Threshold 'Funny, touching, heartfelt and memorable, this is one of those books that should have a 'must read' tag on its cover.
