Item description for Dog Tales: Hundreds of Heartwarming, Face-Licking, Tail-Wagging Tales About Dogs (Hundreds of Heads Survival Guides) by Hundreds of Heads Books...
Like their human friends, dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some are smart, like Ma-Buku, a five-pound Chihuahua who squeaks her toy in perfect time with her owners drums. Some refuse to adhere to dog clichs, like four-year-old Elmer, who loves to chase a tennis ball but refuses to pick it up and bring it back, or six-year-old Barnabas, who can't be bothered to chase cats but will bark vehemently at the wind. There are pretty dogs, heroic dogs, and dogs that are loyal, intuitive, or just plain strange, like Bocci, who goes into a trance when his owner's pager goes off, and can only be "reset" by being picked up and put back down again. All make an appearance in this delightful collection of stories. Submitted by hundreds of real dog owners, these true tales of mutual love and loyalty affirm that there's no better friend than a dog.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dog Tales: Hundreds of Heartwarming, Face-Licking, Tail-Wagging Tales About Dogs (Hundreds of Heads Survival Guides)?
Don't give away your first copy Nov 20, 2007
If you think DOG TALES is a great gift book for dog lovers, you're right. But, it makes a better book to keep.
DOG TALES is more than a compilation of "tales" to warm the soul. It's good reading. It's fun, it's sad, and it's real.
I keep my copy next to the phone. When I'm on hold, I pick it up, and take a guilt-free break. It's like sitting on the front porch with a friend.
I have to admit, I love dogs, and I, too, adopt pets.(The book begins with an adopt a pet program.) Our Ajax is half-blind, has been with us for 14 years. I love dogs, so perhaps my review isn't without prejudice. I've written a few young adult novels, and there's always a dog in them. Because as one of my characters says, they just love you without asking questions.
My favorite chapter is the"Triumph over adversity" chapter, and my favorite photo is of Maty, the three-legged, disc-catching athlete.
DOG TALES does make a great gift book, but keep the first copy for yourself--put it next to the phone or in the bathroom.
It will make you smile.

A dog lover's thoughts! Oct 23, 2007
I love the way this book is laid out. . . so easy to read. It's a book you can pick up, read a few pages, put it down and come back to it whenever and you pick up where you left off! As a long-time dog exhibitor, trainer, fancier and just plain dog lover, the true-life stories bring back lots of memories of my experiences with my own dogs. Dogs are definitely our best friends and provide lasting memories. It's wonderful to have dog lovers of all ages share their stories - I think almost every breed is represented in this book ... and then some!!
Face-Licking Stories Oct 14, 2007
Dog Tales is a heartwarming book full of stories from hundreds of dog lovers across the country sharing their dog experiences. It's a great reminder how dogs can influence human lives and how much love they bring to families everywhere. It has great tips for healthy foods, grooming, puppy training and traveling and much more. This is a must read for all dog lovers.
Besides a good read; it is a great gift for dog owners Oct 12, 2007
Dog Tales is in an easy to read format with stories from hundreds of dog lovers. The stories are heart-warming, familiar, funny and sad.
Having recently lost our two dogs, Joy 13 and Pebbles 15 years old, it was comforting to read the chapter titled Bye, Dog in Dog Tales. We become so attached to our pets and they are such a part of our family, it is essential we go through the same grieving process as if we lost a human family member. In this section, dog owners shared how they grieved and remembered their pets.
On a lighter side, Dog Tales made me laugh. A chapter, What We Will Do for Our Pets, is reassuring that I am not the only pet owner that treats my dogs like family.
My favorite chapter is Best Moments with My Dog. I realized how many wonderful moments I had shared with my loyal beloved pets and they will forever be in my heart.
Not only will Dog Tales entertain you with numerous pet stories, it will make you aware of a bond only dog owners share.
Incredible Insights into the Individuality of Man's Best Friend Oct 8, 2007
"Dog Tales" is another delightful compilation from Hundreds of Heads Books with hundreds of heartwarming tales about dogs. The book also includes great tips and advice on healthy foods, grooming, toys, training, and travel. As always when one hundred heads get together to give their opinions, you will be faced with choices. You the reader must choose your favorite stories and apply those tips and hints to fit your own needs and experience.
A visit to your local shelter or an "adopt a pet" event will warm your heart. This is where this entertaining collection of stories begins. The anecdotes have been submitted by hundreds of actual dog owners who share the discovery of a dog's love, loyalty, and friendship. I particularly enjoyed the accounts of Mr. Robinson, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, Buddy the Doberman, and Pepper the Chinese Shar-Pei.
Award quality photos accompany many of the stories. I fell in love with Jaxon, a Yorkshire Terrier, JJ the Frisbee catcher, and a Sheltie named Axel.
The sixteen chapters of the book take the reader on a journey from the first face licking kiss, and tale wagging greeting to the final good-bye. The adventures include the smart dog, the dumb dog, the trick dog, the hero, the handsome, the bad dog, and the almost human dog.
The final chapter entitled "Best Moment with My Dog" is filled with poignant stories that will remind you of incredible moments with your own "best friend,"
"Dog Tales" is destined to create a bonding experience among dog lovers and owners who recognize the treasure of their own personal heartwarming, face licking, tail wagging, four legged, true, and loyal friend.
