- In stock online
The `bonkers' book that 'it is impossible not to be moved by' DAILY MAIL
A joyful and hilarious tale of some very spirited septuagenarians as they overcome innumerable obstacles to save their beloved mutt from a heartless exterminator in a land where bureaucracy reigns above all else.
Perhaps you're not a member of the Azov House of Culture Elderly Club?
Perhaps you missed the talk on the Cabbage Root Fly last week?
Galina Petrovna hasn't missed a meeting, even if that means leaving her three-legged dog Boroda behind. Boroda isn't `hers' exactly, they belong to each other, and that's why she doesn't wear a collar.
And that's how Mitya the Exterminator got her.
So everyone had to go to Moscow.
Filled to the brim with pickle, misadventure and tears, Galina Petrovna's Three-Legged Dog Story will leave you smiling at every page.
