I love this book. But a little warning, your husbands (or s/o) and family and friends will probably get annoyed of hearing all of the facts and interesting dog related careers available that are mentioned throughout the stories.

I first got this book when I started dating my (now) husband. Our first date was a bet on whether or not he'd stop making fun of me for talking about dogs so much. Never-less, thanks to this book, I had enough random facts to annoy him into losing.

I just found a copy on my desk that someone had loaned/given me a few months ago. I need to make time to read it! Thank you for the reminder!
