I first read this book when I was twelve, on a lazy day, at my grandparents house. I have never enjoyed a book as much before or since! It has to be one of the funniest books ever written while at the same time incredibly heartwarming. I've been looking for a copy for years and am going to buy several more as gifts. If you want to lure your kids away from the tube for a few hours get them to try this book. You won't be sorry!

This is one of the funniest books that I have ever read. Mutt, the dog, comes to the family in a basket filled with ducks. The father in the story wants an expensive pure bred dog for hunting. However, mother circumvents this by plucking out the dog, paying one cent, and saving lots of money. There are plenty of misadventures in the story, from mutt retrieving a stuffed pheasent in the city (after father pointed his shotgun and said bang), to climbing a ladder into the eccentric womans house filled with 50 cats. There was the encounter with the skunk (in the basement of the house) and the time father accidentally used bluing to clean the dog. The part about the owls is funny and interesting as well. Needless to say, Mutt has many adventures, all of them hilarious I have read this book many times.

My family discovered Mowat when I was in my teens and we read as many of his works as we could find. The Dog Who Wouldn't Be particularly touched all of us, adult and child alike, because we all love dogs (and people) who are just a little different!

I've read more complex and demanding books but never have I enjoyed a book more. Mowat's "The Boat who wouldn't float" comes in second.
Read it to your kids. Im going to read it to my kids as soon as it arrives. I've lost my copy (lent it out and it didn't return) so I'm ordering a new one today.
