about this item

Schott’s Original Miscellany was a publishing phenomenon. It sired a host of sequels and parodies. But no matter how patiently and for how many years they begged, the potential canine readership was continually left to pine. Until now.

A Dog-Lover’s Miscellany is how the original would have appeared had its creator been an obsessive dog owner. Or, indeed, a very literate dog. It parodies the randomness of entry and stylishness of design of the original, but is created entirely for dogs and their doting owners and admirers. The result is an irresistible pot-pourri of canine facts, embracing the essential, the trivial, the intriguing, and the extraordinary. The perfect kennel-top or coffee-table book to paw through at random, herein you will discover such treats as dog epigraphs; the origins of dog names; an international guide to the word “dog”; the oldest dog; weights and breeds; Crufts winners; Aesop’s fabled dogs; most popular breeds; dog bite statistics; Lassie; and dogs on the Titanic. It is, in short, the perfect companion for your perfect companion.
