Ah, this story was sad, as most animal stories are. The story didn't really focus on the dog consistently though, but the main character, Gus makes up for it. His voice keeps the reading interesting, and I fell easily into the story. I think the slang and the way the boys spoke to each other helped. Talking about things like lack of money, school etc, made the boy come alive, and his descriptions of Bodger make him come alive too.

A really good Australian story, that didn't put me off by being to

What a lovley story. Set in Western Australia. a real insight into how life was lived all those years ago. Reminds me of our lovly blue healer loving, loyal and courages to the end.

I wish I'd read this book as a child. The way it dealt with the questions any child would ask was just spectacular, and it really did seem like an eleven-year-old boy was narrating the book.
