Dogs have been living with and helping humans for around 15,000 years. All those years ago dogs were either hunters or guardians, but these days, dogs can do all kinds of amazing jobs. In this book, find out how Bailey the border collie became the Assistant Director of Seagulls at the Australian National Maritime Museum, or what Caesar, the mascot for the Western Bulldogs, does during football season. Discover how Mr Walker became a canine ambassador at a Melbourne hotel and how Molly Polly, the Aussie silky terrier, saves lives. With the right training, there is almost nothing a dog can't do. How truly amazing is that?! U.S. dogs include Brynneth Pawltro who is from Kentucky (Mayor of Rabbit Hash, no less!), Lava from Alaska, Piper from Michigan, Daisy and River from Pennsylvania, Rowdy from Oregon, Figo from New York State, TruMan from California, Dagger from Long Island and Tuna from LA. Finalist in the Best Book - Children category in the Dog Writers Association of America Award.
