Not a bad book, not a great book. The author collected stories from people connected to Red Dog and wove them together into his life story. The main issue I had with this book is that it didn't say when this happened, was it the 1940's? The 1990's? I had to look it up on Wikipedia. I was confused by this missing time on several occasions. Otherwise, a cute story of a flatulent dog who was a well-known character in Western Australia. He traveled with people by car, bus, and train. He had one special person in his life for awhile but later traveled among several supporting people. Some of the stories are silly, some are more poignant. A movie made from this book is due in Australia in August 2011. It would be interesting to see what filmmakers do with this story.
