A touching story about a child’s friendship with an ageing dog.
“Can I take Mouse for a walk?” I ask, and I’m always allowed. We set off, very slowly. Mouse walks at a snail’s pace. He stops at lampposts and fences and sniffs for a long time. Sometimes he looks up at me and then I usually say something. I maybe say “old man” in a very nice voice, not my usual one. … I wish Mouse was mine.
My Dog Mouse
offers friendship, humour and gentle heartache in one dog walk. This is a book for anyone who knows what it is to love an old slow dog, with ears as thin as pancakes.
