For some people, the world spins on a slightly different axis, and life is often dictated by a cold nose nudging for a predawn outing, a stray dog hair in your coffee, and that daily race to get home after a long day’s work and be greeted by slobbery kisses.
Planet Dog is a jam-packed book of more than three-hundred lists about raising, loving, and living in the world with man’s best friend.
Combining the practical, the informative, and the entertaining, this unique encyclopedic treatment addresses not only the care of dogs but also their culture, their competitions, their breeding and behavioral characteristics—even dog people themselves—all in a feisty and easily accessible guide.
