A sometimes humorous, sometimes thought-provoking look at how animals think and act, how people treat animals, and what happens to dogs in the afterlife. Tales from ancient Egypt and even further back in the primordial past, right through to the story of a futuristic world set centuries in the future, where most pets are holograms, and even the humans are few and far between. These easy-to-digest tales are inspired by the work of Roald Dahl, although there's a touch of Stephen King in some of them too. For anyone who loves animals... or hates them, this is great good bedtime reading! Cuddly puppies and faithful old dogs, thoughtful mice, a doddery tortoise, and a charming frog inhabit these pages. Loving cats, and a fish that simply craves interaction with anyone and everyone... they all await your attention. There's a wag of the tail, a purr, and a welcome from each of the critters documented here... they're waiting for you. Don't dissapoint them or there'll be Hell to pay!
