Lonely seven-year-old Jeff Freeman is given a Bedlington
Terrier puppy to provide companionship. The dog is Astro Blue. As time passes, a series of remarkable events cements a special
relationship between the boy and his dog, and their lives are dramatically changed.
This story is a tender account of a family united through
their common hobby, the trainingand handling of a versatile show dog. As Astro and Jeff strive to overcome adversity, they
lead their family on a fun-filled, heart-warming, and sometimes heart-aching adventure.
It is difficult to categorize this unusual book. To
some it is the story of a boy and his dog; to some it is the story of a family; to others it is a story of faith. It is all
of these and more - an incredible true story that makes you laugh and cry. Regardless of your age, you are sure to delight
in Astro Blue.
