Live. Laugh. Bark.

What could be better than the presence of a fuzzy and faithful four-legged friend? From their loyalty and devotion to their endearing capacity to face life, work and exercise with endless enthusiasm, dogs have been our steadfast companions for thousands of years. They may be wordless, but their ability to communicate with deeply expressive eyes, a wagging tail or a joyful bark brings out the very best in their humans - and it's no wonder they have inspired many a bon mot or wise insight over the decades. Packed full of wonderful quotes as well as fascinating snippets of information, this little book is the perfect gift for any dog-lover.

'If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.'
Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson, 1894.

'Like many other much-loved humans, they believed that they owned their dogs, instead of realizing that their dogs owned them.'
Dodie Smith, The 101 Dalmatians, 1956.

'My dog is half pit-bull, half poodle. Not much of a watchdog, but a vicious gossip.'
Craig Shoemaker.
