Great Australian Working Dog Stories - Angela Goode & Mike Hayes
Author: Angela Goode & Mike Hayes
First published: 2009
Format: Paperback 566 pages
People of the bush regard their working dogs as the nation's greatest asset. Uncomplaining, tough, never needing to be fussed over, and hugely loyal, dogs rarely go on strike, don't hit the grog, only occasionally answer back, never ask for a pay rise, scarcely take a sickie and are always ready with infectious enthusiasm to start the day!
Drawn from around 2000 entries received by the ABC COUNTRY HOUR in a nationwide competition, the stories in this classic title take you on a vast farm tour of the country, celebrating the remarkable abilities of working dogs and the pivotal role they play in rural Australia.
