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 left to pine, unserved. Until now.
Spott’s Canine Miscellany is the obsessive dog owner’s answer to the original. It echoes (and parodies) the randomness of entry and stylish design of the original, but has been written entirely for dogs and their doting owners and admirers. The result is an irresistible potpourri of canine facts, embracing the essential, the trivial, the intriguing, and the extraordinary. In the pages of this perfect kennel-top or coffee-table book to paw through at random, you will discover such whimsical treats as dog epigraphs, the origins of breed names, an international guide to the word dog,” the world’s oldest dog, award-winning dogs, Aesop’s fabled dogs, dog-bite statistics, a Lassie profile, and dogs who went down with the Titanic. It is, in short, the perfect companion for your perfect companion.
