The Main Characters

The Dog With The Wind In Her Hair is a book full of all sorts of characters from across the spectrum of animal life. However, the two main characters in the book are the Lurchers, Ellie and Robbie.

Robbie the Lurcher

Robbie The Lurcher
Robbie was Ellie's predecessor. He was a strawberry blonde Bedlington-cross Lurcher with impeccable manners and great kindness. Like Ellie, he too was a rescue Lurcher, coming from a rescue centre not far from where Pippa lived in The Forest of Dean in western Gloucestershire. The chapters about Robbie tell his story and his incredible feats of athleticism - and so much more!
