A delightful collection of dog-related quips and quotes that is as warm and comforting as a faithful furry companion at your feet

"There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face."  —Ben Williams

From feral beast to man's best friend, the domesticated wolf has been the object of human affection for centuries. As a well-loved pet, as a key member of the workforce, or as vital support for those who depend on them for practical assistance in daily life, the dog is quite simply the most popular animal on the planet. This charming compendium is a celebration of such canine role models everywhere, containing a variety of quotations, stories, tips, and trivia—as well as classic poems by literary luminaries such as Kipling and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Demanding little in return beyond food, love, walks, and perhaps a ball to fetch, the rewards of dog ownership are undoubtedly rich. As comedienne and actress Gilda Radner observed: "I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive." This beautifully illustrated miscellany is a testament to that fact, and a must-have dog lovers everywhere.
