Thy Servant dog told by Boots - Edited by Rudyard Kipling - 1931

£10.99

Product description

The story is told by Boots, a black Aberdeen terrier very similar to those owned by Kipling over the years which obviously inspired his verse "The Power of the Dog". Boots lives in London with his master. While walking in the park they meet another Aberdeen named Slippers, owned by a young woman, (Polly).
The dogs fight, the owners separate them with mutual apologies and all walk off together. The dogs become friends, the man and woman marry and live in a house on a country estate with, like the well-to-do upper and middle classes of the time, a staff of servants. There are houses of varying size on the estate, some occupied by members of the family, with other cottages and lodges for members of staff.
Edited by Rudyard kipling, this book is illustrated by G. L. Stampa.
