‘The trick, Henry, is to survive, but you have to know how.’

Henry Ford is a cute but naive Border terrier puppy who lives with his papa Alan and mama Jenny. Alan loves his job, playing golf and above all, Henry. Jenny loves designer clothes, shoes and her credit card. She doesn’t love Henry.

Not sure whether he has everything or nothing he runs away and after a dramatic journey home where his mama and papa’s marriage is on the rocks, his papa has to choose: Jenny or Henry.

With his future looking decidedly insecure, Henry’s furry pals at the terrier club develop a plan to reorganise his papa’s life.

Overflowing with drama and canine humour, Henry has to learn that doing nothing is not an option.

This powerful tale tests the bond between man and his best friend.

30% of royalties will be donated to Border Terrier Welfare.

About the Author

David Pipe was born in 1949 in a small Essex village. He attended a local grammar school then the University of Hull where he took a B.Sc in chemistry. He worked in the pharmaceutical industry in England and South Africa before studying for a PhD in organic chemistry at Imperial College. After spells at universities in Geneva and Mulhouse he joined the oil industry in Germany where, aged 53, he gratefully took a redundancy package.

Following a period of self-employment he wound down his business, eventually giving it up to scratch the writing itch which has produced Sacrificing Starlight, a timely reminder of the risks our children face and Henry's Tale, where ghostwriting for his furry friend he describes the emotional growth of a puppy on the rollercoaster of life, compressed into a few weeks because puppies learn faster than their staff.

When he's not writing David spends his time travelling, reading, swimming and jogging. He is married and lives in Hamburg with his wife and their Border terrier Henry.
