Once upon a time in Provence, Peter Mayle adopted a dog of uncertain origins and dubious hunting skills and gave him a name—Boy. Now he gives this canny canine a voice in an irresistible “memoir” that proves that the best vantage point for observing life may well be on all fours. As Boy recounts his progress from an overcrowded maternal bosom to unchallenged mastery of the Mayle household, he tells us why dogs are drawn to humans (“our most convenient support system”) and chickens (“that happy combination of sport and nourishment”). We share in his amorous dalliances, his run-ins with French plumbers and cats, and in the tidbits (both conversational and edible) of his owners’ dinner parties. Enhanced by fifty-nine splendidly whimsical drawings by Edward Koren, A Dog’s Life gives us all the delights we expect from any book by Peter Mayle—pedigree prose, biting wit, and a keen nose for the fragrance of civilization—together with the insouciant wisdom of which only a dog (and probably only Peter Mayle’s dog) is capable. From the Trade Paperback edition.

It is a fact generally acknowledged, dear reader, that a man is not a man without a dog . . . ‘I have always been a pushover when it comes to dogs – something my own dogs worked out a long time ago. Who else can be relied on to be that excited about seeing you first thing, day in day out?’ Mary, Tina and Arthur are the four-footed members of the Clunes family – scrapping, sleeping, leaping, wagging and licking. But there’s too much of the scrapping, and the hierarchy is a complicated structure that has been bent and broken. Martin Clunes set off on a worldwide adventure to film ITV’s A Man and His Dogs and sought to discover where dogs come from and how they evolved into our companions and the working dogs of today. Along the way he also learned about the social structure of a wolf pack, survival skills of dingoes in Australia and wild dogs in Africa, among other things. In the wild, social rules are obeyed or fur flies, but nature has been pretty vicious in Martin’s own back yard as well. The battle to stop the fighting between Tina and Mary has included ventures into therapy, training classes, dog psychiatry, diet and tough love. Through the adventures of this delightful, closely-knit family, with their horses and chickens and dogs, we learn about the soft-hearted actor who is Martin Clunes. Fond, funny and endearing, this book will enchant and fascinate in equal measure.

An animal behavior expert “combines sensible information with charming wit [in] an entertaining guide for new and veteran dog owners” (Ken Foster, author of The Dogs Who Found Me). What do dogs value? Why do they get so excited by their daily walks? And why do canines of different breeds have different needs? Veterinarian and professor of animal behavior Dr. Paul McGreevy answers these questions and many more, explaining what life is like from a pooch’s perspective—including a special section about dogs and city living. Filled with humor and memorable characters (including “Uncle Wolf” and “Feral Cheryl”), this guide offers: Insights from recent studies on how dogs see, smell, and experience the world Explanations of canine behavior, accompanied with over forty action photos Tips on everything from petting them to calming them at the vet’s User-friendly training techniques that build skills gradually and keep your pet motivated Dr. McGreevy offers an exciting new approach to training a dog: By acting as a “life coach”—rather than an “alpha dog” or “parent”—and by looking at the process as a fun opportunity for you and your pet to grow closer and learn new skills, you can greatly improve your dog’s quality of life, and teach good behavior at the same time. “Science, experience, and common sense . . .Your dog will want you to read it.” —Mark Evans, chief veterinary adviser, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

Story of a young surveyor who achieved his dream of exploring and mapping many of these mountains and glaciers. Arriving at Scott Base in October 1960 for a 16-month assignment, he spent two summer seasons sledging and surveying through the mountains and around the edge of the frigid Polar Plateau -- the spectacular region made famous by Shackleton, Scott and Amundsen half a century earlier. Wintering over between seasons and working with British explorer, Wally Herbert, to look after five teams of huskies, he became nursemaid to their 20 entertaining pups.
