She is a famous racing dog and therefore has no chance of getting away, but she is determined her four pups will not be slaughtered because of their father. She devises a desperate plan for their escape, to take place at the very moment when they are leaving the compound for the killing place. She teaches her son the legend of the Doglands, a place where dogs can be free, and urges him to forget her and lead his sisters to a better life.

He first has to learn to make the difficult choice between security and a measure of happiness as a pet, or the dangerous but more honourable life of a free dog. Learning that his new owners intend to have him neutered — for his own good, because it will stop him wanting to stray — helps him make up his mind, and he flees. He is soon recaptured, however, and meets up with a rag-tag bunch of dogs in the pound with whom he forges strong bonds of friendship. He also meets, at last, his famous father Argal, the night before the older dog is to be executed, and Argal spends his final night training his son in the ways of the free dogs.

Furgal learns what it really is to run with the winds, and about the canine afterlife which means that although his father is about to die, they will not be truly separated. There is some humour in the story, particularly in the character of the cowardly and well-named Skyver, but the author does not shy away from sadness or loss, and Furgal has much to endure in the course of his adventures. When the owner of the camp finds out, he gets Furgul and his sisters and puts them in a box to be killed!
He goes through a life with sadness and happiness. He meets new dogs, finds his dad that escaped long ago, and goes on a adventure of a lifetime! Close Embed Code. Copy and Paste the code below to your website or blog.
