|Plot Summary of The Dogs Who Came to Stay|
|"This is a true tale of a stray wild dog, who looking for a place to have her imminent brood of pups, takes up residence under the shed of two middle-aged batchelor academics at Princeton. They slowly befriend her and coax her to trust them and take food for the pups. Despite their busy lives she is greatly loved, and she and one of her pups become very much part of the family. The story is told very simply and lovingly. They have some entertaining experiences in French restaurants and aboard ocean-going liners. Dog-lovers will all relate to it very strongly, including some of the smells."
Michael JR Jose, Resident Scholar
