Praise for the hardback published in 2011: 'Reveals there was more than one Greyfriars Bobby... all the evidence points to Scotland's most-loved pooch being two completely different dogs.' THE DAILY RECORD; 'There were two Greyfriars Bobbies!' THE SCOTS MAGAZINE; 'Greyfriars Bobby was a Victorian con trick. Jan Bondeson has uncovered evidence that there were in fact two Bobbies and that neither of them belonged to the man buried in Greyfriar's cemetery, Edinburgh, whose grave they sat on' THE DAILY MAIL; 'Greyfriars Bobby, the Victorian dog that held a 14-year vigil at the grave of its master, is actually a myth... a publicity stunt drummed up by local businessmen to attract custom to their corner of Edinburgh' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.
