Loyalty has no limitsRaised from a pup by Greek hero, Odysseus, Argos has come to learn the true meaning of love and loyalty. But when Odysseus leaves for the Trojan War, little does Argos know it will be 20years before he sees his master again. With Odysseus gone his wife, Penelope, and son, Telemachus, are easy prey for neighboring kings and the Gods themselves.But Argos was tasked to keep them safe until Odysseus returns and that is a promise he isdetermined to keep – whatever the cost. Told through his eyes, Argos recounts the story of hislife – his pain, his joy, his triumphs and failures; his endurance in the face of hardships almost too great to believe.Above all else, Argos strives to do what is right – and to remain loyal to his King when all others have given up hope. To live long enough to see his beloved master one more time.This epic myth of love and loyalty proves that a dog really is man's best friend.
