A rollicking, globe-trotting experience with a twist: a four-legged heroine you will not quickly forget.

One evening, Elsie and Mallory sneak out in their pasture; yet whereas Mallory is drawn to flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie reveals herself attracted to the farmhouse. during the window, she sees the farmer's relations accrued round a brilliant field God - and what the field God finds approximately whatever referred to as an "industrial meat farm" shakes Elsie's knowing of her global to its middle.

Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.
