Spoiled and ungoverned, Fitz was not suitable companion for a lady of fashion...
And certainly no proper chaperon. Fitz begged to disagree--after all, a dog was a true incomparable as far as friendship, loyalty, and protection - and soon lovely Miss Sonia was plucked by her rusticated roots and packed off, dog and all, to London. Perhaps there she would find a husband to tame her free-spirited ways - and keep her out of trouble.
Sonia, however, always had a soft spot for the underdog, and Darius Conover was such a fellow. Scorned by society for a scandalous deed, Conover was not redeemed even by his heroics in battle. Until he met Sonia and Fitz, two passionate souls undaunted by even the most odious circumstances - and decidedly determined to undo the shackles binding his heart.

Yes, it's a nice kind of relaxing book that's very good for a car trip or pool-side.
That it was pleasant without being stupid. It's hard to find a book that's light and funny, but also well written.
I liked her voices very much, I just wish the audio quality had been better. It varied, but was generally of sub-par quality. It also skipped a little here and there.
Lovely, funny little book. It's also quite clean, so I'd feel comfortable giving it to a precocious child or more conservative older person. I hope Audible picks up more from the author and voice actress. I just wish the audio quality was better.
I am very fond of books where a dogs take part in the narration. They make me look at my dog differently. I am sure my behavior exasperates him at times.
love audio books - Anglophile
I read the book years ago and was very happy to see this book on audible. The audio just enhances the book. I have the book, audio, and Kindle versions - if I really like a story, I buy it in all the forms in which it is available.
Fitz the dog!!! I loved the comments from Fitz. For example, when Darius is looking for a kidnapped character, he comments to Fitz, "They have a good lead on us. Do you think you can find [the] coach in this mess, huh, Fitz?" And Fitz thinks to himself, "Of course I can. I peed on it [the wheel], didn't I?"
They were all good. I liked the way she used a lower class accent for Fitz.
Yes. I also listened to it with my sister whenever we were in the car.
I love Barbara Metzger's earlier books, like this one. I'd like to see her earlier books in audio form.
Proud Canadian who loves Jesus, Dogs, Country Music, Lilacs, Gregory Peck movies and audio-books with a HEA.
A Loyal Companion is an entertaining tale. I did enjoy the dog's Point of View!
"well written story"
where in alternate chapters fitz gives his thoughts on humans, other animals reasoning, and a bit of history.
lovely story where Sonia likes to get her way and charms the people in London on the party rounds.
stevie Zimmerman performed the story well. the soundtrack let it down a bit.
