This delightful light-hearted book is the true story of a love affair. A love affair between the author and his two miniature dachshunds, one with which anyone who has ever loved a dog will empathise. They were born in Africa and travelled widely there. They were quite possibly the first dogs ever to cross Europe, solely by water from the North Sea to the Black Sea. They swam in the great lakes of Africa, in seven seas, chased baboons in Africa, rabbits in the High Jura on the European watershed, and lizards in the ruins of Troy. Sometimes they enjoyed it, sometimes they found it confusing, sometimes, as in a Turkish winter, they distinctly disapproved. It was an adventurous life... This is a dog’s tale, a tale of two small dogs. Small dogs they may have been, and perhaps like Pooh, of small brain, but very few dogs can have been as well travelled or better loved. The author was born in England but grew up on the continent and in East Africa. He served in the British army then moved to Zimbabwe, or Rhodesia as it was, in the BSA Police. After a career in local Government, hotels and sports clubs and finally as bursar of a group of private schools he returned to the UK where he now runs a small convenience store. He has been married to his wife Jean for forty one years, has two married daughters and four teenage grandsons. His passion is boats of all kinds and he spends as much time as he can on his small barge in France, and after studying ‘French in 3 Months’ for five years he hopes in a few more years to master the language.
