Dottie is a Dalmatian with class.


She's from England and she's positively posh: she loves jazz, she loves her book club and she loves her cheese-and-wine evenings. There's just one thing missing in her perfect life: nothing (and nobody) to make her tail wag.

When Dottie finds herself transported from her British home comforts to an American city called Backwood, she is surprised to find herself enjoying the company of a lowly beagle named Ralphie.

What Dottie doesn't realize is how much she'll begin to care for Ralphie, and Backwood - her new home, which is under threat from a mysterious tyrant. Will Dottie join the fight for Backwood or retreat back to her comfortable life across the pond?

Come along on this heartwarming, humorous, and tail-wagging adventure from Nathaniel David Knox.
