Howard Goes to Derbyshire

Howard was born in the South of England and had that Great Dane tendency to be a bit arrogant if you know what I mean.

So when the family – Jenny, Dougie, baby Jasmine, Howard and a much reviled ginger feline by the name of Elvis – moved up to Buxton in Derbyshire, he felt at first a bit out of his depth. For a start, there were a lot of unpleasant walks on the moors, admiring the views and breathing in fresh air, which he couldn’t see the point of. Then there was Letitia, a bulgy eyed Cavalier Spaniel whom he wanted to be friends with but who rather caustically pointed out that he was ‘rather large’ and seemed ‘very Southern’. Eventually Howard and his owners find friends a plenty but only after Howard is ‘saved’ by blind old Martha, who lived with her Collie, Ted, in the middle of the Derbyshire Dales. Find out how Howard was saved, and from what, in this further intriguing dog tail from the pen of Otto Vernon, the talented four-pawed author from Brighton. He is helped in his endeavours by his dotty owner whose hope is that dog lovers of all shapes and sizes, will sit back and enjoy this escapist nonsense.
