The author

Fern Collins, once a typical country-dweller, living in a farmhouse in rural Lincolnshire in the north east of England, went through something of a life-change when she moved to London to work as an editor in general publishing. Even though her rural life has given way to a hectic, urban lifestyle, she still retains her love of the countryside and rural matters. Also a passionate animal-lover, Fern has compiled this interesting and quirky book on dogs for all dog enthusiasts to enjoy.
