    'Dogs are very much part of our lives - they are our companions and members of our families, they are our workmates and our guardians. Whether they are sleeping at our feet, chasing a ball along the beach or rounding up the sheep, our dogs have pride of place. The volume, part of the National Library's popular 'Little Books' series, the Little Book of Dogs celebrates the close relationship between Australians and their dogs through the delightful images from the Library's collection and poems by authors such as Henry Lawson, Oodgeroo Noonuccal (Kath Walker), Jack Davis and Les Murray.'
