Barney is a terrier who lives on a canal boat with his owner Jim. Jim is getting older and his family want him to consider selling his boat and buying a flat. When Jim begins sleepwalking and has an accident, he reluctantly puts his barge ‘Whispering Jack’ up for sale. But a friend and her dog come to the rescue, offering Jim and Barney a place for them and ‘Whispering Jack’ to berth.
A simple story for animal lovers and readers who enjoy a gentle story.
