Travels with Boogie by Mark Wallington
Book Description"Travels With Boogie" is the story of two city slickers - one an unattractive but streetwise mongrel from Stockwell, the other the long-suffering author - and how they came to terms with England's countryside and waterways. First they had to survive against all odds as they embarked on a heroic journey up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of Kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset. And they did it. Then, undaunted, they took on the treacherous waters of the Thames. Not exactly as Mark had planned, however: this time his companion was to be the delectable Jennifer - but she was held up at the office, and when Boogie was dropped off at the kennels the other dogs complained. "Travels With Boogie" is a witty and fascinating account of a mismatched couple and of the people they meet and places they visit.

Pennine Walkies, Paperback (June 1997)» View all books by Mark Wallington

Clearly Boogie will do fine -but will Mark be up to the task?
