This is a delightful and light-hearted account of how a stray dog became the companion of a young English lady. Whilst at first glance a seemingly simple and lovely story, this is actually a riveting account of late 19th century European high society, as we follow 'Ugly' and his mistress on a grand tour of Europe, including scrapes with the police in Germany, disastrous hotels in Vienna and opera in Dubrovnik, all while remaining a touching story that could make anybody want the love of a dog in their life. First published in 1871. This text has been republished here for its historical and cultural significance. Including a specially commissioned introduction on dogs in fiction.
