The Holy Terriers
This is a book about Winston, Abigail, and Oliver, three elderly terriers who never acted as expected or fit the profile of the their breed. Hot air balloons, musical chairs, and horseshoe crabs were some of the adventures The Holy Terriers and I experienced when they came into my life aged eleven, nine and eight.
