Well, for better or worse, this was a unique set of stories. The book is made up of several stories all about a grand Collie named Lad. It isn't the type of book you'd want to sit down and read straight through, but it's very enjoyable to pick up and read a story or two. As a whole it felt a little repedetive. People are mean to Lad, then he wins them over. Lad has a new friend and he rescues them. etc. Some were better than others. It made me want to take my pup for a walk.
This book is really hilarious! I just love the writing and the clever sensitive collie Lad. Poor thing he got all skunked up in one story and gets into all kinds of trouble! This author clearly loves dogs.

no one's read these, i'm convinced, except my grandmother and me. but if you want to read a book about a heroic collie dog, then this is the ticket.
I have read this book many times in my life. it is one of my favorites
read as a kid- loved horse books more, but dogs were ok too.
