9781417748761: Planet Dog: A Doglopedia

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.

From Publishers Weekly:

The English Bulldog is the third most popular dog in South Africa, but doesn't rate in the top ten in Britain. The Labrador Retriever, meanwhile, occupies a top-ten slot in every country surveyed in this one-stop information clearinghouse and sprawling shrine to all things dog. The husband-wife authors of this book have compiled over 300 dog-centric lists ("11 Helpful Books on Dog Care," "8 Weird Laws About Dogs," "66 Great Dog Movies") containing troves of trivia, training techniques and pointers on nearly all aspects of the dog-human dynamic-from picking a pup to coping with a dog's death. The authors erred on the side of comprehensiveness when putting together this book; while "20 Tips for Preparing Your Dog for a New Baby," offers great advice, "Why Dogs are Better Than Cats," on the same page, does little more than take up space. Given the book's staggering volume of Fido facts, it will appeal to those already smitten by their own hounds (and possibly seeking to justify the lengths to which they go to please their dogs) and those looking for a wide-ranging resource to consult before taking the pooch plunge.
