 This 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. Large format.

Red cloth hard cover, black titles. Numerous charming b/w sketches on cream backgrounds. 116 pages Spine a bit faded.
