'Funny, sad and wise, The Wonderful World of Dogs celebrates the many ways our canine friends warm our lives with their boundless love and loyalty, their wicked sense of humour, and their endless appetite for adventure and mischief - and food.

'The many dogs you will meet in this book will capture your heart, as dog lovers from around the globe share their moving stories of the incredible feats of endurance, everyday miracles, and extraordinary bravery they have witnessed from their canine companions.' (From the publisher's website.)
