Product description

Review

This is the exciting and touching story of a Jack Russell who had at least nine lives - and many more adventures - with her owners, Rosemary and Robert Forrester, as they sailed around the world on a yacht. The story begins in Florida when Robert flies to Florida to buy some essential boat parts, and returns with a six week old puppy. Rosemary is both delighted and anxious: how will a dog as lively as a Jack Russell adapt to living at sea? This tiny dog has to learn how to keep her balance on a boat with it tilting sideways one minute, then crashing down on a wave the next; how to fins a way to play ball without being washed into the ocean; how to learn to eat fish instead of meat; how to swim in the sea and get back on the boat; how to see-off all potential intruders, including marauding seagulls and customs officials. Above all, Tara has to learn how to survive when she is washed overboard - not once, but twice. Rosemary recounts their incredible adventures as they sail from Panama Canal to Australia, and on to Malaysia and Thailand, where they survive the Boxing Day Tsunami. Finally, their journey takes them through the Indian Ocean to Mozambique, where Tara ends her days. --Kennel and Cattery Management

will definitely appeal to yachties with or without a dog ... An ideal gift for leisure sailors, armchair captains and Jack Russell Terrier fans everywhere. --Driving with Dogs

a rollicking read for adventurous dog lovers --Geelong Obedience Dog Club

About the Author

Rosemary left England in 1947, when her parents bought a farm in South Africa, and later went farming in Rhodesia. She married Robert in 1968 and, six years later, they bought a camping Land Rover and travelled with a parrot through South America, finally settling in Rio de Janeiro, where they owned a day sailing boat. When Robert's brother died young of cancer, they decided life was too short, bought a yacht, and cruised the world on-and-off for the next 20 years, 10 of which they were joined by Tara, their Jack Russell terrier.
