This handsome volume contains over 500 full-color photographs of dogs in all their tail-wagging glory, and captures the energy, intelligence, and lovable nature of man's best furry friend. A chapter on breeds introduces readers to fascinating breeds such as the shaggy-haired komondor and the scruffy Bouvier des Flandres, and presents equally irresistible portraits of more familiar favorites. Taken in their native settings, these pictures demonstrate the physical traits and abilities that make each dog special. Another chapter captures unexpected interactions between dogs and cats, dogs and ducklings, dogs and piglets, and other odd couples. In a chapter on dog behavior and habits, hundreds of images reveal the characteristics for which each breed is known. Accompanied by informative captions written by distinguished naturalists, zoologists, and journalists, the vibrant images in Dogs will warm the hearts of all dog lovers.
