In the style of James Thurber's The Dog Department meets Marley and Me, Shepherd Girl: A Dog Story chronicles the exploits of Athena, a silly long-coated German shepherd. Athena is at times exasperating and certainly no perfect replica of Rin Tin Tin, but the underlying love and devotion between dog and author are undeniable. For all who have loved a dog, Shepherd Girl: A Dog Story will remind them why.
"If you've ever considered bringing home the spunky little German shepherd puppy that caught your eye, you might think again after reading Cat Needham's hilarious recount of one frenzied moment after another with Athena." - Bob Tarte, Author of Enslaved by Ducks and Fowl Weather
