The Dog Who Wouldn't Be
by Farley Mowat




Overview -

The uproarious true adventures of a dog who doesn't understand that he's a dog -- and the boy who loved him. Funny, heartwarming, and true, this is a classic story of a very imaginative kid and one very unusual dog.

Funny and poignant, The Dog Who Wouldn't Be is a lively portrait of an unorthodox childhood and an unforgettable friendship. Growing up in on the frontier of Saskatoon, Canada, the legendary adventurer and naturalist, Farley Mowat, received a gift from his mom: a dog she bought for four cents. Farley quickly named him "Mutt."

Mutt displayed skills at hunting and retrieving that were either pure genius or just plain crazy -- once going so far as to retrieve a plucked and trussed ruffed grouse from the grocer. Mutt also loved riding passenger in an open car wearing goggles and climbing both trees and ladders -- the perfect companion for a child with a love for animals and misadventures.

Originally published for young people, this is a memoir by the author Never Cry Wolf that will delight dog lovers of all ages.
