Publisher's Summary

CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson has one simple task: Watch an ambassador’s dog while the diplomat is conducting sensitive negotiations with an alien race. But you know dogs - always getting into something. And when this dog gets into something that could launch an alien civil war, Wilson has to find a way to solve the conflict, fast, or be the one in the Colonial Union’s doghouse.
"The Dog King" is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.

Best Episode Yet!!!!

I really liked this episode.
A bit different than the rest, there are several funny points here, Wilson is a good character....

And c'mon, a title that says "the dog king" is interesting in a space theme book. What is really good in this series is how everyone keeps on pointing the blame and faluts toward Wilson.

Delightful Short Story

In my opinion, this book is the only standalone story in this series since The B-Team (first episode). It is clever and humorous, yet within the realm of The Human Division sci-fi background. I would definitely recommend this for a light 58-minute listen!

Definitely no dog this

O.K. its a lightweight story but such fun. The versatile and inventive Wilson is thrust into one of his most difficult positions yet - walking the ambassadors dog. Great sardonic dialogue which is brilliantly interpreted by William Dufris and worth every penny of the 79p price. Go buy and enjoy.

Great short story

This is a great short story, in a collection of intertwined short stories.

I will look for more title by this author.
