Buster's tale to help real dogs
PUBLISHED: 16:00 25 January 2015
A WRITER has paired his love of words with his love of dogs to support the Somerset Animal Welfare Trust.
Brian Humphreys, aged 66 from North Worle, has just released new children’s book, Buster, The Time-travelling Dog.
He said: “I’m a dog owner myself. People buy pets for presents and then realise after a few weeks they might chew a few things and people don’t want them anymore.
“Buster’s life starts off as a Christmas present and he gets an ASBO, an antisocial barking order. His owners don’t know how to look after him, so they decide the only thing to do is get him castrated.
“Buster runs away and he ends up being taken in by a professor, who fits him with a time-travelling collar, and his adventures begin.”
Brian will donate profits to the animal charity. He said: “I write for passion not for profit, so if it can do some good along the way, well great.”
The book, aimed at children aged 12 and up, is a fourth novel from Brian, who chairs the Wordsmiths Of Weston writing group.
