Red Dog is a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of travelling all over Western Australia, hitching rides over thousands of miles, settling in places for months at a time and adopting new families before heading off again to the next destination and another family – sometimes returning to say hello years later.

Would you listen to Red Dog again? Why?

A long drive in the car has always been preceded by this question, have you packed Red Dog? We want to listen to it again. It has been a family favourite for a long time with us. We love Red Dog, and we love the people who love him. He is part of our permanent cast of characters in the nurturing world of imagination and narrative.

What about David Field’s performance did you like?

David Field hits the right note of laconic friendliness that is Red Dog.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This story will make you laugh and it will make you cry.

Any additional comments?

All of us who saw the movie, preferred this story as a listening pleasure.
