||Buster's Diaries: The True Story of a Dog and His Man
By Roy Hattersley
In 1996, Buster, a half-German Shepherd mutt, was attacked by a goose in a public park. He defended
himself-much to the detriment of the goose-who, unfortunately, was owned by the Queen, and Buster was
brought up on charges. Grossly misrepresented by the media, he became an instant celebrity. Eager to present
his side of the story, he dictated his diaries to his Man, the lord who had adopted him a year earlier. The result is
a delightfully funny, sometimes touching romp through Buster's triumph over adversity, some dog psychology, the
odd training rituals the Man performs, the pain of his
puppyhood, and, ultimately, a dog's joy at owning a human.
