Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amanda MacGregor
In this volume of the "Dog Daze" series, readers learn the essentials of the Dalmatian, an active and intelligent breed. The material covers facial features, such as the head, teeth, mouth, eyes, and ears, as well as body basics, such as size and build. Other features discussed include the dog's coat and color. Readers will be interested to learn that the Dalmatian is the only breed to have spots on its coat. Puppies are born white, and the spots begin to appear when the dog is around two weeks old. Additionally, the book examines the health and care of the dog, including a vet's checklist of recommended grooming tips, such as cleaning the dog's teeth twice a week. Other topics include exercise and training, attitude and intelligence, and information on litter size and puppies. A checklist to assist the reader in deciding if this is the right breed is also included, as is a section on how to choose a breeder and a puppy. The book ends with an illustrated brief history of the long relationship between Dalmatians and firehouses, from their initial use to run along with the fire wagon and stand guard, to their continued use a mascot at contemporary firehouses. A few quizzes and a glossary, containing bolded terms from the text, round out this title. Despite its slim size, the information presented here is thorough and interesting. The accompanying illustrations and photographs greatly enhance a reader's understanding of this breed and help enliven the factual text. With large, dynamic pictures, bright fonts, and an appealing layout, this volume of the "Dog Daze" series will provide dog fans a lot of information in a user-friendly format.
