What's your favourite dog breed? Is it a corgi (the Queen's favourite and they know it), a French Bulldog (like a bulldog, but more chic) or it an Afghan Hound (slightly aloof and require shampoo - curlers optional)?

You will meet them all in this charming guide to our beloved four-legged friends. Featuring over one hundred dog breeds, each are depicted in a beautiful watercolour and accompanied by a witty character profile. Attractively illustrated and delightfully humorous, this canine compendium makes for an ideal gift and is the perfect book for dog lovers of all ages.
