Dog Works: The Meaning and Magic of Canine Constructions
by Vicki Mathison and photographs by Tim Didgshun and Trudy Nicolson

Spoodle, German Shepherd, Jack Russell, Labrador, Beagle, Sheltie, Irish Wolfhound and many more: whether your favourite breed is in this book or not, if you are a dog lover/owner, you will find this quirky book of interest.

The author became fascinated by one dog's beautifully symmetrical series of sand-holes dug at the beach and began to wonder what other structures dogs might build and why.

Her interest led her on to further investigations not just into what creative behaviour dogs display but also into whether specific breeds of dog are inclined to certain types of construction, and again why.

The author consulted an animal psychologist and an animal behaviour expert in the preparation of this book. She also met and photographed the dogs and their owners and listened to their stories. The result gives some interesting insights into dogs' capabilities and the reasons behind their behaviour. The photography is excellent and augments the text perfectly.  

At only $3.00 each, you can't afford NOT to buy a few copies for stocking fillers, Xmas presents, thank you gifts, or a bit of light reading for your guest bedroom or for yourself. Come on in and pick up a few.
