Description

The perfect gift book for dog lovers.


A charming guide to over 100 dog breeds, each depicted in a beautiful watercolor and accompanied by a description that wittily conveys its most salient characteristics. From Afghan to Yorkie, Breeds will make dog owners howl with delight.

Afghan Hound - Tall, elegant, and well behaved. Dogs with excellent eyesight. Have a tendency to be aloof. Will require shampoo (curlers optional).

Borzoi - The wolf-hunter of Russia, this wonderfully tall and swift breed was once used in hunts with packs of over a hundred dogs These days they prefer to relax by the fire and read Tolstoy.

Corgi - Spirited yet loyal dogs. Unusually large ears, all the better for hearing with. The Queen's favorite and they know it.

Dachshund - A long, loving, and inquisitive dog. Slightly neurotic - will spend large parts of the day worrying.

Scottie - Elegant and compact. Trots along like a dressage horse. Deeply suspicious of other dogs, all of whom are considered lesser beings.
