Miss D

Deni & Elspeth Langford

One year in the latter life of a rescue dog

A heart-warming and humorous story about two seniors – one a rescue dog, the other a woman – after they find each other in the latter years of their lives. It follows their discoveries and adventures, and as the story unfolds, the reader will be uplifted by the love each one has given the other, told through the voice of the dog. Every dog lover will find part of themselves and their canine companions imprinted onto the pages. Although the cornerstone of this story is Deni’s life as a rescue dog, the book’s theme relates equally to all our faithful canine companions. Each one ‘rescues’ us in some way, turning our life around, sometimes full circle.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to animal rescue and welfare agencies.


Book Launch

Deni, dog author, and Elspeth, Deni’s linguistic interpreter/literary agent, invite you and your canine companion to an exciting event - the launch of Deni’s very first book.

Refreshments will be available, catering for both humans and dogs, therefore, can you r.s.v.p. to: by Wednesday, 29th January please.
All proceeds will be donated to animal welfare and rescue organisations, and books will be available at the launch, as well as through online publishers. Deni will be autographing each copy sold and said she won’t mind getting paw cramp, because this will mean more donations.

When: Sunday, 2nd February, 2020
Where: Lake Gwelup Reserve* (off Huntriss Road, near the scout hall)
Time: 4 – 6pm (a perfect time to incorporate a cool-of-the-evening ‘walkies’)

*If you’ve not visited this reserve previously, its dog friendly of course, so dogs can roam, supervised, off-leash, but not permitted in the lake or in the children’s adjacent playground. There are public toilet facilities.
Hope to see you there,
Deni and Elspeth
