The sheep closed in around him like a big, woolly blanket. The
puppy had never been so scared or so excited in his life. Soon
he was racing, feinting, dodging - learning what it means to be
one of the proud breed of Border collies, the finest sheepherders
in the world. Then, almost overnight, his life is turned upside
down. He finds himself in a series of strange places, with no
sheep, his family gone. With nothing but the courage he was
born with and a dream, he searches for the life he once knew,
gathering names and adventures as he goes. For a short time,
he's called Blackie. To the Goat Man, he's Shep. To Hollerin,
he's Spot. There's one name that threatens to forever haunt
him - Sparky, the name Billy the circus man calls him when he
reaches for the whip. But there's another name that he is given,
one that finally makes him feel at home . . .

Known for her rich character development, the author brings
all her skills to delving into the mind of a clever, philosophical,
and hopeful dog searching for a home.
