Product description

Synopsis

One winter?s afternoon Stephen Foster walked into a dog re-homing centre with the intention of picking up a retired greyhound. Instead, he acquired an abandoned lurcher pup. Foster?s knowledge of dogs was so vague that he had to look up ?lurcher? in key reference work The Giant Book of the Dog to find out what sort of animal was coming to join the family. His research counted for little: the new arrival did not conform to any known breed standard, or indeed any standard whatsoever that might be considered dog-normal. Walking Ollie is a hilarious ? and often heartrending ? account of one man?s attempt to turn a psychotic wild animal into something resembling a domestic pet.

About the Author

Stephen Foster is the author of the short story collection, It Cracks Like Breaking Skin, and the novel Strides, about love and trousers. She Stood There Laughing, his account of a season following Stoke City, was one of the bestselling sports books of 2004, topping charts in the press and online at Amazon. He lives in Norwich with his partner and a lurcher called Ollie.
