Summary

Bobby, a sparky, silver-haired Skye terrier, adopts Auld Jock, a worn-out simple shepherd, as his master. Jock is let go by the farmer and dies in poverty, having suffered one winter too many.

The farmer tries to reclaim Bobby as a pet for his daughter, but the dog owes allegiance only to Auld Jock, guarding his grave in Greyfriars Kirkyard. His devotion changes the lives of those around him and ultimately the conditions of the poor in Edinburgh.

Bobby's loyalty is eventually rewarded, and he becomes a famous dog indeed!

English Narrator???? Why???

Why did they get an English Narrator to narrate a Scottish Story??? His ridiculously POOR attempt at various Scottish accents spoiled it and I often didn't hear what he said (I'm from Edinburgh and no-one I know has ever spoke like that) I just couldn't finish the book. Why they didn't get a Scottish Actor/Author someone from Edinburgh to narrate the story is beyond me. Poor, very poor.
