It's a dog's life, and it's getting better all the time. With the help of this one-stop shopping guide for doggie delights, your dog can be thoroughly pampered every day of the year.
It takes a book like this to reveal the extent to which dog owners can and will go. I'm a longtime dog owner, but you'd have to grade me low on the shopping scale. I’ve heard of dog bakeries but never shopped at one; my dog sleeps on his predecessor’s bed; but he does enjoy the occasional day in doggie day care. His collar looks, er, ordinary.
Clearly, I've been missing a lot. Take, for example, the Yuppy Puppy Treat Machines, gumball machines that dispense little treats, or Doggie Gift Baskets (Frisbees filled with treats and topped with a sporty bandanna), or a Pet Motor Vehicles license issued from Boulder, Colorado (www. chloecards.com). I'm much better informed now on the many options in doggie jewelry, designer collars, and doggie dishware. I now know exactly how to tie a bandanna on a dog.
There's a great chapter on toys, including stuffed toys that hold up under pressure, and a helpful chapter on the tools and toys for dogs with disabilities. Svete has researched everything you can think of, from travel tips to medical and spa services. Some of these references will make you groan, and others will have you on the phone in a second, credit card at the ready. Each chapter concludes with a list of resources (URLs and phone numbers).
I can't let you dog owners go, without passing along a recipe for biscuits I found in this book. Bone appétit! (Ginger Curwen)
