Wilderness to Water: Poppy's Story (Paperback)
The whole idea of the book came from video diaries and photos that my husband sent me from his work camp in Saudi Arabia. It started off when orphaned, Poppy, turned up at the work camp and Callum felt the need to look after her by giving her food and water. Every day he sent me updates on her progress and I would share the videos on Facebook. Friends were soon fascinated by the video stories of Poppy and other wild desert dogs that Callum was caring for. I joined "desert dog "groups on Facebook and again people were intrigued by the video diaries. I learnt so much about the desert dogs plight from people in the Middle East that I decided to help educate children about a subject I once knew nothing about by writing our experience of adopting Poppy and getting her from Saudi Arabia to the hills of Scotland.
