Our Review: This product is for the humans who like to write down everything we dogs do, and take lots of pictures, and stuff.... so it'd probably be pretty good for most of your parents. Part of the book is better if the human is just starting the process of bringing a dog to live with them, because it has places to record information about breeders and rescue groups, questions the humans should ask, how to figure out what kind of dog is right for their personalities and living situation, etc. There were a few other sections of the book only applicable to certain dog-owners, but most of it was more universal. There is space to keep track of medical history, training information, and just plain fun stuff like anecdotal stories and pictures. Our Sis purchased this book at a Barnes & Noble that will be closing at the end of December, so it was 40% off list price (she got it for around $11). On the Internet, it is available at http://www.amazon.com , http://www.bn.com , http://www.bamm.com and others for around $19.95.
Our Rating:
3 1/2 out of 4 paws
