Gully's TravelsBook - 2008 | First edition.
Gulliver leads the cushiest life imaginable. His master, a well-to-do professor, gives him everything a Lhasa apso could possibly want: a fashionable Manhattan address, a fancy collar, classical music, premium dog food. They even spend their summers in Paris! But it's in Paris that his master, Professor Rattigan, falls in love with a woman who turns out to be allergic to long-haired dogs. Forced to choose between his prospective wife and his beloved pet, Professor Rattigan sadly gives Gulliver up--to his doorman, Carlos Montoya. And so it is that the refined, purebred Lhasa finds himself in a cramped, ramshackle household in Queens, along with a family of raucous human beings and three deplorable mutts. Once the initial shock and horror wear off, Gulliver forms a plan to escape his wretched situation. The plan goes awry. But just as Gulliver begins to make a grudging peace with his new reality, the Montoyas take him along for a day at the beach, where he gets swept up in a harrowing new adventure. Only after crossing an ocean and learning a thing or two about what's really important in life does Gulliver find his true home.
