This "simple, funny, and touching" story of a truly remarkable dog who changed the lives of her owners forever will move your heart as few stories can (The New York Times Book Review). From the moment Peter and Cindy Martin spotted Perth as a puppy at the kennel-she came streaking toward them and staring with her intense gaze-they knew she was the one. Almost immediately, she became a central part of their household. Always left to run free, Perth became an indefatigable explorer, gone for hours, sometimes entire days, but her infallible compass always brought her home. From her exploits in upstate New York to the story of her incredible survival in the Vermont wilderness and her later adventures in the English countryside, Perth displayed the same pluck, intelligence, devotion, unshakable trust, and unstinting love. This extraordinary, beautifully written homage to a very special pet is "sure to delight anyone who has ever loved a dog, beagle or otherwise" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
