This month K9 Magazine are pleased to offer readers the chance to win a copy of the fantastic new illustrated book, Albert the Handydog, which brings you the story of an extraordinary Pug.
Albert isnâ€™t anything like those smooth-coated, lap-sitting, fat-scrunching, face-licking members of his breed; no, he is more of a DIY-ing, bubble-bath-soaking, wild-woolly-coated, helpful handydog. He lives with the Bunting family on Leaf Lane, and is best friends with their daughter Lily. The story begins with Albert attending a job at the home of Old Major Brandy (a heavily decorated army dog with a penchant for a drop of Whisky!).
Albert narrowly avoids serious injury while cleaning the Majorâ€™s gutters and cannot wait to get home to his nightly bubble bath soak. â€¨â€¨However, his sud-soaked dreams of relaxation are dashed when he arrives home to find visitors. Mrs Buntingâ€™s rude, pointy-faced sister is arriving with her husband, they are staying the night on their way to a very important business meeting. Albert tries his best to help make their stay run smoothly â€“ but you see, wherever Albert goes, trouble seems to ensueâ€¦
