Description

�He tenido cinco perros. No hay compa��a m�s silenciosa y grata. No hay lealtad tan conmovedora como la de sus ojos atentos, sus leng�etazos y su trufa pr�xima y h�meda. Nada tan asombroso como la extrema perspicacia de un perro inteligente. No existe mejor alivio para la melancol�a y la soledad que su compa��a fiel, la seguridad de que morir�a por ti, sacrific�ndose por una caricia o una palabra.� Perros de presa adiestrados por gente sin escr�pulos, un chucho mejicano tuerto y digno, el fila brasile�o que no era un asesino, Jemmy y Boxer, que cruzaron el Valle de la Muerte con la Brigada Ligera, el perro flaco y bastardo de la batalla de Rocroi, o Sherlock, el teckel de pelo fuerte y s�lidos silencios, son algunos de los protagonistas en los art�culos escritos por Arturo P�rez-Reverte entre 1993 y 2014 que se recogen en esta antolog�a, ilustrada por el pintor Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "I have had five dogs. There is no company more silent and pleasing. There is no loyalty as moving as that of their attentive eyes, their licks, and their close wet noses. Nothing as amazing as the extreme wisdom of an intelligent dog. There is no greater remedy for melancholy and loneliness than their faithful company, the certainty that they would die for you, sacrificing themselves for a caress or a kind word." Perros de Presa trained by unscrupulous people; a one-eyed yet dignified mutt; the Brazilian mastiff that wasn't a killer; Jemmy and Boxer, who crossed Death Valley with the Light Brigade; the skinny bastard dog of the Battle of Rocroi; or Sherlock, the quiet wire-haired dachshund: these are some of the protagonists in the articles written by Arturo P�rez-Reverte between 1993 and 2014 that are compiled in this anthology, illustrated by the painter Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau.
