This is a classic story of love, loyalty and devotion based on fact retold especially for children with charming illustrations by Virginia Gray.
A Skye terrier called Bobby was devoted to his master in nineteenth century Edinburgh. Bobby and his master ‘auld Jock’, a Pentland Hills farmer, were inseparable and for fourteen years after auld Jock’s death little Bobby made his home near the old man’s grave in the cemetery in Greyfriars Kirkyard.
He was loved and cared for by the local people who were touched by the bond between the dog and his master.
This book is suitable for ages 7+.
Today on Greyfriars Bridge there is a statue of the Skye terrier given by the people of Edinburgh to commemorate the loyalty shown by the dog. Millions of visitors annually are inspired by this wonderful true story.
