One winter's afternoon, Stephen Foster walks into a dog re-homing center with the intention of picking up a retired greyhound. Instead, he acquires an abandoned lurcher pup. Foster's knowledge of dogs is so vague that he has to look up 'lurcher' in key reference work The Giant Book of the Dog, to find out what sort of animal is coming to join the family. His research counts for little: the new arrival does not conform to any known breed standard, or indeed any standard whatsoever that might be considered dog-normal.
Two's a Crowd When You've Been Top Dog. In this riotously funny book, Stephen Foster picks up where Walking Ollie left off. Instead of one difficult dog, he's got two. Where Ollie sees a threat, Dylan sees a challenge - and Foster finds himself forever somewhere in the middle, trying to work out why they can't just all be friends.
