It is impossible to cover the many subjects contained in the marvelous '1001 REASONS TO LOVE DOGS.' There are 315 pages in this compact 7' X 7' book. How did they get so many eye riveting photos in this jam packed space? By truly magic this masterpiece was created in a seldom seen artful use of space. It is simply hypnotic turning pages loaded with masterfully told adventures,supported by striking photos,and pure facts. We must not forget there are stories about many of those humans who were prominent from the past, and present often combined with their faithful companions. There is facinating information on much of the great dogs in history. You may know some. Others will amaze you. Well written, '1001 REASONS TO LOVE DOGS' has color photos, many not seen before of War Dogs, Dog Heroes, Motion Picture Dogs, and those holding records. For example, the smallest dog ever, a Yorkie 2.5 X 3.5 inches weighed 4 oz. and lived to be nearly two years old. However this is more than an encyclopedia. Rather this is a delightful adventure of moments that take us from the turbulent universe in which we live,into that relaxing world that dogs easily provide. I know of a few dogs here that suffered tragic deaths, but these are not revealed as this book is obviously a celebration of life. It is said, 'it is not how we die that counts, but how we lived.' That saying of course goes without meaning if we do so saving lives of others. Then death becomes the greatest of glories. There are heroes here. Those of us who love our dogs are not surprised by exteme devotion. We know dogs are our gift from God.

Being a dog lover for many years, I had to buy this book. So glad I did. It is full of a lot of informational tidbits I never knew about all different breeds. It's full of great photos and a lot of history about which I was never aware. I bought it as a Christmas gift for friends and plan to loan my copy to my other friends.Was this review helpful?

I received this book from some friends as a Christmas gift as they know how much I love dogs. I enjoy it so much... read it cover to cover when I received it and now pick it up all the time to read a page or two. I just ordered this one to give to my best friend who is also an avid dog lover. She was really excited to receive this gift!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
