An inspiring and heart-warming short story of canine devotion and bravery.

Animals have accompanied man into battle since war first waged.

Gander, faithful friend to WWII Canadian soldiers, was smuggled onto a troop ship in 1940, where he was given a personal kit bag, awarded the rank of Sergeant and allowed to drink beer. In return for the kindness and admiration of his fellow soldiers, the huge Newfoundland dog gave his life to save the injured men he lived alongside.

Extracted from the bestselling title The Dog That Saved My Life, this is the short story of one incredible dog that refused to give up; a dog that showed devotion and unquestioning loyalty even in the darkest days.
