The story of Bobby, the Skye terrier who kept a 14-year vigil by his master's grave in Edinburgh's Greyfriars Kirkyard, has remained popular since it was first reported in the 1860s, and the dog's memorial has long been a popular tourist destination. In this book Jan Bondeson investigates the real events behind the tale and suggests that the story was partly invented to bring visitors to that part of the city.
