The third and last of my funny, light touch, comedies of manners.  Can Brian the Dog take the place in a child’s affections when her parents are divorced?  Her mother thinks so.  Her mother is wrong.  Brian takes a strong interest in the rabbit next door, one Bulstrode, and when Bulstrode shows a distinct touch of having hit the fatal, mother must call in the vet for help.  Who just so happens to be rather attractive and male… 


Patricia’s marriage of eleven years is over. Despite her doubts about the arrival of Brian, a dog who has become a father-substitute for her ten year old daughter Rachel, Patricia is more than ready for a fulfilled life as a single parent. But then the matchmaking begins. Even her most trusted friends are determined to provide her with potential lovers, all of whom she skilfully manages to avoid – that is until Roland, who is deeply unsuitable, arrives on the scene.
