London (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Has any dog ever received this much dedicated attention? “A Doggy Day in London Town” (published by AuthorHouse), the fourth volume in Anthony Linick’s Dog People of Paddington Rec cycle, answers this question. Nine years ago Linick began keeping a daily journal based on the activities of his pet and those of the friends he met each morning in a nearby London park. A truthful narrative that continues the tale of Fritz the Schnauzer, “A Doggy Day” includes all the joys and the tragedies of modern life.
“A Doggy Day in London Town” is also a record of the life and times of a great city – as experienced by an ever-changing catalogue of its citizens and visitors, people from many walks of life and nationalities who are nevertheless united in their love of the canine species. If we return to Samuel Pepys for a daily account of London life in the late 17th century it is no wonder that we can now do the same thing in the early part of the 21st century with this series by Anthony Linick – “the Pepys of Pups.”
