Summary

When Steve Jamieson met Bilbo, a chocolate Newfoundland puppy, little did he know that the small bundle of fluff would grow to take up a huge space in his heart and change his life forever. The pair were inseparable, with Bilbo accompanying Steve to his job as head lifeguard of Sennen beach in Cornwall every day. Bilbo was an excellent swimmer and he was soon promoted to honorary lifeguard. He was even credited with saving the lives of three people. But Bilbo and Steve couldn’t have foreseen the obstacles that life would throw at them. Together, they would have to gather every bit of their strength to fight for their livelihood.

Have loved this story from start to finish

I had a Newfoundland called Sula who died about 14 years ago, listening to Bilbo reminded me about all the wonderful personality traits these amazing dogs have, plus their natural ability in the water. This story was wonderful to listen to - thank you for sharing Bilbo with us.

Good tale about an Amazing Dog but poorly produced

There is no doubt that Bilbo was a great dog and had a very interesting life. The story is well put together and keeps interest but I struggled with the narration and production. I didn't really like the narrators style - maybe it was just me but if felt like someone reading a book rather than telling a story - even more annoying though was the way this was put together with long pauses between chapters and quite a large number of repeats of sentences or paragraphs.
I think I would have preferred to read a print version of this rather than the Audio book

Lovely book

Lovely book reduced me to tears. Very moving well worth a listen. Bilbo was a incredible dog and this book is a fitting tribute to his life.
