Breeds: A Canine Compendium
Breeds is charmingly illustrated, delightfully humorous guide to over 100 different breeds of dog (and one cat). From aloof Afghan's to tearaway terriers, Breeds will strike a chord with dog lovers everywhere. Corgi - spirited yet loyal dogs. Unusally large ears, all the better for hearing with. The Queen's favourite and they know it. Dachshund - a long, lover and inquisitive dog. Slightly neurotic - will spend large parts of the day worrying. They make excellent draft excluders. Scottie - elegant and compact. They trot along like a dressage horse. Deeply suspicious of other dogs, all of whom are considered lesser beings.
The perfect gift for dog lovers, Breeds is a charming canine companion book.
