Spud, a blue heeler pup, begins her life in the city, at a time when blue heelers are fashionable.
These dogs are bred to work on the land and when Spud is no longer a cute puppy, she is abandoned.
Luckily she is adopted by a new master. She goes to a new home in the country, and receives love and respect from the caring man.
Spud's fortunes change again when she comes under the control of a new owner. He is cruel and violent, and treats her terribly and Spud must rely on her instincts to ensure her survival ...
I've tried to make this an exciting novel that gives an honest and graphic picture of life on the land.
