The handsome star of a TV documentary planning a book signing session at Sunday’s Totnes Show should give visitors paws for thought.
For the hero of the new book is a dog.
King Tommy, recently scooped the award for the most handsome dog in show in the Scrufts competition for cross breed dogs – part of the world famous Crufts Show.
He was also filmed in Totnes as part of a Channel 4 documentary called Scrufts – Britain’s favourite dog.
Now King Tommy is the hero pf a book penned by his Totnes artist owner Monique Nerman – who rescued the four-legged favourite in India.
She and King Tommy will be doing a book singing session at the show where last year he was the show’s Best rescue dog, said Monique.
“King Tommy is going to be a VIP at the Totnes Agricultural Show this year on Sunday and we will be doing book signings with our new book King Tommy,” she said.
King Tommy was a street dog in Goa in India where 50-year-old Monique was living some seven years ago.
She rescued him after seeing that he had been abused and now he is a therapy dog, helping people.
Monique said the book was “an amazing story of love and survival about a small Indian dog who became a therapy dog and a canine celebrity”.
