When Buff was born he looked all of what a Collie should look like. But he wasn't, he had some bull dog blood in him, and because of this he wasn't so valuable. Having been stolen, sold to a new owner Trent, he shows his undying loyalty to Trent and seeks him across the countryside after Trent is kidnapped. Also contains six other stories including Jock who sensed when something was terribly wrong even a continent away, Wolf who saved his young master from drowning and freezing to death in a lake, and Robin the big Collie mix and the pride of his mistress who wins a cup at a dog show, sort of.
From the Book Jacket: These are the supurb stories of Albert Payson Terhune. The classic story, A Dog Named Chips, first published in 1931, is now available in a new large-print version. Born a ragamuffin mongrel, Chips had a longing for purple and fine linen, for all the luxuries of a millionaire's world. Escaping from home in a sports car, he insinuated himself into the heart of the ninth richest woman in America, dominated her household, patched up a budding romance, and even got himself abducted and held for ransom. But the climax of his career came in a brief visit to the Philadelphia dog pound. As a result of this excursion into unknown territory, Chips presented his unsuspecting mistress, with a litter of seven. In the end, Chips received her final triumph-a new and royal name-"Cleopatra, formerly Chips." Hilarious and exciting, this is a book for every dog lover.
In this collection of the work of Albert Pason Terhune, the author shares many of his favorite dog stories, as well, as some of the other stories of animal friends he has written over the years.
Wolf, the fiery red-gold son of Lad of Sunnybank, was not like his sire. Wolf, did not look like a show collie, did not have any show points, but he had hear, and love, and faith. Follow Wolf as he has adventures, proving his loyalty, love, and friendship.
