Bird Dogs Of The World: by Stanley W.C. Smith
Bird Dogs Of The World: by Stanley W.C. Smith (Author) (9781852591762)
In this book, Stanley Smith has made a special study of the Bird Dogs of the World, showing how they developed and where they originate from. It all makes fascinating reading. Starting from ascent history and the early development of the dog he traces the uses made of the Hunting Dog in Ancient Egypt some 8000 years ago and on to the Phoenicians, Carthagenians, Assyrians and other races up to the present day.

An unusual feature is the coverage of the Game Birds which are the quarry of the Bird Dogs.  After descriptions of the various breeds there is a chapter on selecting and training a puppy for pointing retrieving.  The author is a keen breeder and enthusiast of the gun-dog breeds and has been actively concerned with them for more than 40 years.

A Snuffle of Pekes (A Tao of Pekingese): by Valerie Miles (Author) and Norma Procter
A Snuffle of Pekes (A Tao of Pekingese): by Valerie Miles (Author) & Norma Procter (Author) (9781857360097)

Rumer Godden, in her history of the Pekingese dog, quotes from the legend of the lion who fell in love with a butterfly, telling us the result of this mating were the Pekingese dogs, who 'ever afterwards have to be as brave as lions and as dainty as butterflies'.

In this book, dedicated to Rumer Godden, Valerie Miles and Norma Procter have captured in line, color and verse, a living history of a Snuffle of Pekes, who, perhaps, represent the characteristics of their breed. Through the pages of this book you will meet several of the delightful Pekingese who populate these little stories, in text and in wonderful drawings by the authors!

Note:  At the top of the book is a small water mark which the picture does not depict.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers English & Irish: by Shaun Barker (Author)
Staffordshire Bull Terriers English & Irish: by Shaun Barker (Author) (9781857362428)

This is a crusading book, one which looks at the much loved Staffordshire bull terrier breed, and asks whether the current standards are drifting too far away from the original concept of the breed which should represent agility, fitness and courage.  Comparisons are made between the present English type and the Irish which are more in line with the dogs which used to be bred. 

The author reveres the memory and work of the old pioneers and respectfully points out their views on what our objectives should be in breeding this great breed.  He believes the Irish Staffordshire is very much the old type of dog and hopes that more will be done to bring all Staffordshires back to taller and fitter dogs.
