From the instant they spotted the forlorn puppy in the kennel, as she stared at them with her intense eyes, Cindy and Peter Martin knew she was the one for them. Almost immediately, Perth became a central part of the household, a dog for all dogs. Always left to run free, Perth became an indefatigable explorer, often gone for hours or entire days, but her infallible compass always brought her back home. From her adoption in upstate New York, her incredible survival in the wilderness of Vermont to her later adventures in the English countryside, Perth displayed the same devotion, unshakable trust, and unstinting love. An entertaining, beautifully written homage to a very special dog.
Any pet lover will find much to relate to in this heartwarming memoir about the trials and tribulations - alongside the joys and rewards - of giving so much love to a creature bound by nature to roam, explore, and sometimes even run totally free.
Voice actor Sean Pratt’s performance of Peter Martin’s A Dog Called Perth: The True Story of a Beagle is pitch perfect, and his slightly weathered voice is especially effective during some of the audiobook’s more harrowing adventures. Martin’s beloved beagle Perth is a lively dog who certainly keeps her family on their toes, and her escapades may have listeners reaching for their own furry friends, if only to say, warningly, “You’d better never!”
