Book Description

12 Aug 2009
Ryan O'Meara brings together the craziest headline-making news stories from around the world and puts them into one hilarious compendium that will blow the usual anecdotes right out of the dog park! Each chapter - with clever titles like "Canine Calamities", "Why People Need Pet Insurance", and "Dogs that Found Fame" - opens up with a funny canine cartoon. This work features stories including: a pit bull that digs up a human hand in its owner's garden; an Australian cattle dog that saves an elderly woman from an alligator; a yellow Labrador that claims the cleanest mouth after eating ten bars of soap; a mixed-breed dog that nurses three tiger cubs at a Chinese zoo; and, a golden retriever that saves his owner by performing a modified version of the Heimlich Maneuver.
