Greyfriars Bobby, Paperback / softback Book


This is the charming story, based on fact, of the love of a Skye terrier called Bobby for his master in nineteenth-century Edinburgh.

Bobby and his master 'Auld Jock', a Pentland Hills farmer, were inseparable and for fourteen years after Auld Jock's death little Bobby made his home near the old man's grave in the cemetery in Greyfriars Kirkyard.

He was loved and cared for by the local people who were touched by the bond between the dog and his master.

A life-size statue of Bobby still stands in Edinburgh, commemorating his devotion and loyalty near Greyfriars.
