Amazon Hot New Pet Book Realease -- Show Dog: The Charmed Life and Trying Times of a Near-Perfect Purebred
In honor of The Westminster Kennel Club 136th Annual Dog Show 2012 which is taking place this week on Monday and Tuesday, February 13-14 at Madison Square Garden, we are reading a book that takes a close look at the fascinating world of breeders and dog show lovers.
The book Show Dog: The Charmed Life and Trying Times of a Near-Perfect Purebred by Josh Dean follows Jack, a champion Australian shepherd, over the course of a year from an inexperienced adolescent to seasoned adult show dog. The book features his owner, his handler, his breeder so we can learn what it's like to own a show dog and to train one.
