Red Dog is a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of traveling 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.

Professional reviews

"The author of CAPTAIN CORELLI'S MANDOLIN was inspired to write these "tall tales" when he discovered a statue of a sheepdog in a town in northwestern Australia. Narrator David Field's Outback twang brings a Down Under legitimacy to these humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, stories about Red Dog, a smelly and stubbornly footloose canine who'll eat anything ripe--from socks to eggshells. It jars a bit when de Bernieres reminds us that February is hot because it's summer Down Under. This slight distraction makes it even more important that Field sound like Red--independent, resourceful, and wry--and he does. S'truth ("it's the truth!"), Field makes us believe in the essential Aussieness of a story that wouldn't be nearly as charming anywhere else on earth. M.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
