COMMENTS AND REVIEWS: ‘Pat Becker scores again with her unique insight into the feelings and emotions of dogs fighting to survive in a world controlled by people—some who see dogs as the unique creatures they are and some who see them as little more than furniture.’ – Darl DeVault, Executive Editor Distinctly Oklahoma Magazine

BOOK OVERVIEW: A cocky, young English Pointer destined for greatness in the world of quail hunting has little tolerance or interest in others—whether human or his own dog companions. But on his way to stardom in the world of game dogs, the talented bird dog suffers a cruel setback at the hands of heartless dog thieves. The little pointer learns to care about more than himself as he tries to make sense of a new world where he is no longer in control of his fate.

Can he find his way back to the familiar world of quail hunting, caring owners, and trusty companions? Or will he wander in life, never fulfilling his destiny as a champion sports dog?

MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK: This is the third of Pat Becker's books for dog lovers of all ages. Her previous works, The Search for Paradise and Bodacious Bo the Pound Prince, also feature lost or abandoned game dogs making their way as best they can in a world controlled by humans, who are all-too often indifferent to the feelings and well-being of dogs.

Like the previous two books, Saga of Buddy Payless is again illustrated by artist Sherry Brown-Judy, who realistically portrays these game dogs with her compelling sketches.
