Woman's Best Friend: A Celebration of Dogs and Their Women

by Barbara Cohen Louise Taylor

"In this heartwarming new celebration in words and pictures, women of all ages and walks of life give us inspiring glimpses of their special relationships with their canine companions. There's Donnasue and her German shepherd, Leo, who race each other to answer the telephone, and Deborah, who shares the fun of running down sand dunes with her Scottish deerhounds, Traveller and Irene. Shirley and her Doberman pinscher, Gunna, love exploring the woods and fields, while Cindy and her collie, Tennyson, prefer to hit the open road. Ann takes Koa and Falk swimming in a Hawaiian lagoon, and Cynthia dines with Charlie at the best restaurants in France." "We meet service dogs like Meko, the hearing ear dog, Bear, the police K-9, and Clea, a Great Pyrenees who keeps away the neighborhood cougar. We are also introduced to dogs who have made a profound impact on women's lives, like George, who prevented a house fire, Georgette, who helped a young girl through her parents' divorce, and Cole Porter, who kept his owner from taking a plane destined to crash. And we meet dogs just as memorable for being nothing more than their affectionate, fun-loving selves." "The experiences described in these stories have inspired dedication, loyalty, admiration, and, above all, long-lasting friendship. Women portray their dogs as faithful buddy, fearless hero, and riotous clown. They demonstrate how dogs have transformed and added new dimensions to their lives. And they leave us with a magnificent testament to the enduring warmth and love between women and their dogs."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
