The sound of toenails clicking across the kitchen floor, the thump of a tail responding to your voice in the dark, the jingling of tags on a collar--all are sounds welcomed by every dog lover. Just as we have grown fond of the antics and traits of our beloved pets, our dogs have grown accustomed to the sound of our keys unlocking the door, our hands reaching into a jar for a doggie treat, and our sharing a spot on the couch. This mutual, unconditional affection between dog and human has created an unbreakable bond that transcends age, gender, and race. For the Love of Dog: 100 Reasons Why Man Is Dog's Best Friend celebrates the incomparable love that humans have for these lovable, furry friends. Ever since becoming a dog owner at the age of twelve, Tracy Ford's love for dogs has grown. His dog taught him about life but also about responsibility, making good decisions, and coping with death. The fluffy ball of fur taught him that almost always it is humans who have accidents, not their pets. The dynamic between pet and owner is not necessarily about what people receive from their pets or they receive from us, but what both give to each other. Filled with photographs depicting the bond between dogs and their owners, For the Love of Dog outlines why we can't get enough of muddy feet, dripping mustaches, barking at all times of the night and day, scaring the pizza man, and always having our backs protected. Why do we do it? For the love of dog, of course!

In almost 40 per cent of households in North America, dogs are kept as companion animals. Dogs may be man's best friends, but what are humans to dogs? If these animals' loyalty and unconditional love have won our hearts, why do we so often view closely related wild canids, such as foxes, wolves, and coyotes, as pests, predatory killers, and demons? Re-examining the complexity and contradictions of human attitudes towards these animals, Dog's Best Friend? looks at how our relationships with canids have shaped and also been transformed by different political and economic contexts. Journeying from ancient Greek and Roman societies to Japan's Edo period to eighteenth-century England, essays explore how dogs are welcomed as family, consumed in Asian food markets, and used in Western laboratories. Contributors provide glimpses of the lives of street dogs and humans in Bali, India, Taiwan, and Turkey and illuminate historical and current interactions in Western societies. The book delves into the fantasies and fears that play out in stereotypes of coyotes and wolves, while also acknowledging that events such as the Wolf Howl in Canada's Algonquin Park indicate the emergence of new popular perspectives on canids. Questioning where canids belong, how they should be treated, and what rights they should have, Dog's Best Friend? reconsiders the concept of justice and whether it can be extended beyond the limit of the human species.

In 1978, determined to combat fraud, waste, and abuse in government programs, Congress overwhelmingly approved the creation of special Offices of Inspectors-General (OIGs) in many federal departments. Moore and Gates here provide the first evaluation of this important institutional innovation. Clearly and objectively, they examine the powerful but often imprecisely defined concepts—wastefulness, accountability, performance—that underlie the OIG mandate. Their study conveys a realistic sense of how these offices operate and how their impact is affected by the changing dynamics of politics and personality.

In 1923, William Lewis Judy purchased Dog World magazine for just over $1,000. For the next four decades, his unique, poignant, and witty writing and editing style, combined with his genuine love for dogs, enlightened a growing population of dog owners across the nation. A prolific dog show judge and breeder and expert on dog law in America, Judy had a vision that dogs would serve humans in ways most had not imagined. He championed their use in military and police work, and in their value as assistance and therapy dogs. In 1928, he launched the National Dog Week Movement, to honor man’s best friend in a collective and thoughtful manner. Today, that movement continues, a testament to the legacy of this inspiring and gifted dog-enthusiast.

'DOG'S BEST FRIEND is as fascinating, funny and wise as we've come to expect from Simon Garfield. More than that, it's a book that asks profound questions about what it means to be canine' ANDY MILLER, author THE YEAR OF READING DANGEROUSLY 'This is a book that will make your tail wag' KATE HUMBLE 'A fascinating, informative and highly entertaining expedition through the highways and byways of dogdom' JOHN BRADSHAW, author of IN DEFENCE OF DOGS 'Simon Garfield has written a book every owner will lap up with the same delight and enthusiasm their Fido would a discarded box of fried chicken. That is to say, with great pleasure' KATE SPICER, author of LOST DOG *** One of the first words we learn. Perhaps the best friend we'll have. An animal so much part of our lives that we speak to it like a child and spend small fortunes on its wellbeing and wardrobe. Dogs and humans: in the last 200 years no inter-species relationship has developed so fast nor come so far. Dogs accompany us in every walk of life, usually three times a day. How and why did this relationship begin? How has it changed over the centuries? And who's getting the upper hand? DOG'S BEST FRIEND investigates this unique bond by revisiting some of the most important milestones in our shared journey. It begins with the earliest visual evidence on ancient rock art, and ends at the laboratory that sequenced the first dog genome. En route we encounter the first Labradoodle in Australia, a misguidedly loyal Akita in Japan, an ill-fated Poodle trainer in the United States, and a hilariously disobedient Romanian rescue dog named Kratu at the Birmingham NEC. We will also meet Corgis and Dorgis at the Palace, the weightless mutniks of the Soviet space programme, a Dalmatian who impersonates Hitler, and an owner who claims his Border Collie can remember the names of more than a thousand soft toys. If you own or once owned a dog, you will know that our relationship can be as rich, complicated and rewarding as the relationship we have with other humans, and the book reflects this diversity with the aid of trainers, breeders and psychologists. Above all, it explores the extraordinary ability of dogs to enhance so many aspects of our lives. DOG'S BEST FRIEND is as entertaining as it is informative, as eccentric as it is erudite, and all told with Simon Garfield's irrepressible gift for witty and insightful storytelling.

‘The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts his dog.’ Samuel Coleridge. To his dog, every man is Napoleon, hence the popularity of dogs’ – Aldous Huxley ‘A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverence, and to turn round three times before lying down’ – Robert Benchley It’s been argued that we live in a dog’s world, and The Dog Fanatic brings to life the joys of being in that world, with hundreds of slobbery, trick-performing, tailwagging quotes that remind us just why we call dogs ‘man’s best friend’. With contributions from a star cast, ranging from Winston Churchill, Samuel Pepys, Alec Guinness and DH Lawrence, to Jerome K Jerome, Florence Nightingale, PG Wodehouse and Rudyard Kipling, this is surely a book that will delight all dog lovers. Patricia M Sherwood, a longtime dog fancier, breeder and trainer, is also the editor of The Greatest Dog Stories Ever Told and An Honest Angler.

Do our dogs experience the equivalent of infancy and puberty? Do they go through the terrible teens or struggle with midlife crises? And what can we do to ensure they take each step in stride? In The Seven Ages of Man's Best Friend, bestselling author Jan Fennell leads us through the key phases of a dog's development by uniquely defining the seven ages of our dogs: the buoyant, boundless energy of the Puppy and the Pioneer, the troublesome teens that are the ages of the Playboy and the Protégé, the difficult middle years of the Pretender and the Protector, and the twilight years of the Pensioner. The book offers advice on all the problems that crop up at particular times in a dog's development, including training and vaccinations as well as puberty and parenthood. In The Dog Listener, Jan Fennell changed the way we think about our dogs. Now, Jan once more challenges conventional thinking and puts forward an alternative view of the dog's world.
