The real-life story of a special friendship sure to capture the hearts of all

When Pippin, a helpless baby fawn, was abandoned by her mother on the property of Isobel Springett, things looked uncertain for her. Three days went by, but when her mother didn’t return for her, Isobel stepped in and brought her inside—only to discover that some unconventional help was on hand.

Isobel’s Great dane, Kate, adopted Pippin immediately. From the moment Pippin snuggled into Kate’s side, she didn’t leave it—even when Isobel fed her sheep’s milk from a baby bottle. She followed Kate everywhere, just like a real puppy, and Kate patiently shepherded her through her first strange and confusing days in a human household.

The story of Kate’s and Pippin’s highly unconventional but loving relationship is charmingly chronicled by Martin Springett, Isobel’s brother, who is an awardwinning illustrator and author. Featuring Isobel’s beautiful photography, Kate and Pippin is sure to be a cherished classic for young and old alike.
