Dogs throughout history have enjoyed a special relationship with humankind, and our favourite four-legged creatures continue to grow in popularity. The writers and poets collected within this anthology reflect on the joys and pitfalls of dog ownership with brilliant wit, insight, and affection. With a heartfelt and humorous introduction by Tracey Ullman (an inveterate adopter of strays), this illustrated anthology traces the canine’s extraordinary journey from working animal to pampered pet.
