"Enough stories and tales to keep even the casual dog lover entertained. Recommended Reading." USA Today
Erika Manousarian
"Gerald and Loretta Hausman have written about dog myths and animal behavior for over 30 years." AKC Gazette
Book Reviewer
"The Mythology of Dogs is an encyclopedic reference book with a great personality to boot. Entertaining and brimming with information about dog breeds and their histories."
Petlife
Mary Bernard
"Connoisseurs of canine folklore and trivia are sure to love The Mythology of Dogs. Did you know that because two Afghan hounds used their snouts to plug holes in Noah's Ark, dogs have ever since had wet noses?
. . . entertaining tales gathered from around the world and conveyed with wisdom and wit." Dog Fancy
Fucini Productions
"Rigel's story (about the mythological dog on the Titanic) is just one of the many canine tales of fact and legend that are told in The Mythology of Dogs...the book includes little-known, but fascinating tidbits from dog history...as well as colorful canine myths." Best Friends Newsletter
