Dog Sayings: Wit & Wisdom From Man's Best Friend by Bradford G. Wheler
If you're a dog lover, or have one in the family, Bradford G. Wheler's Dog Sayings: Wit & Wisdom From Man's Best Friend will be a fun addition to a home collection. And, if you stick around until the end of the review, you can try to win a copy of the book. Christmas gift, anyone?
This small book tells of man's relationship with dogs, accompanied by artwork that beautifully illustrates each chapter. There are quotes from Charles Schultz, "Happiness is a warm puppy," Mark Twain, and Elizabeth Taylor. It's an eclectic mix of quotes, and an interesting selection of artwork. There are photographs, sketches and paintings, all of them showing the heart and personalities of dogs.
I liked Gene Hill's comment. "Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot about puppies." The quotes revolve around subjects such as "Love & Loyalty," "Dog Humor," and "Ancient Wisdom." And, for those of us who are cat people, there's the chapter, "Dogs vs Cats," with cat illustrations. Dereke Bruce reminds us of something we already know. "In order to keep a true perspective of one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him."
If you're looking for a little collection of wisdom and artwork, you might want to pick up Dog Sayings: Wit & Wisdom From Man's Best Friend. Or, if you'd like to win a copy for yourself or to give as a gift, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should say, "Win Dog Sayings." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
