classic from the pen of author and artist Cecil Aldin chronicles the
lives of his own dogs — Micky, an Irish wolfhound, and Cracker, a bull
terrier — and offers a charming book of practical advice for would-be
dog owners and trainers. In addition to tips and suggestions that are
as true and effective today as they were 90 years ago, Aldin recounts
delightful stories about dogs and their antics, accompanied by dozens
of enchanting illustrations.
Many dogs and breeds make cameos in these pages, most of them ordinary
pets rather than champions or prize-winners. Along with Micky and
Cracker, they illustrate anecdotes related to feeding, training, curing
bad habits, and otherwise bringing up a "dog of character."Full of the
finest portraits by pen and pencil of dogs of the most doggy character.
Red cloth hard cover, black titles. Numerous charming b/w sketches on
cream backgrounds. 116 pages Spine a bit faded.
