The book's original description of each breed's history has been preserved, and its standards updated. Readers will now find a wealth of entertaining contemporary facts and trivia, too.
Brimming with anecdotes, amusing pop culture snippets, and hundreds of wonderful images, The Blue Book of Dogs will delight and inform dog lovers of all ages.
