Show Dog

The Charmed Life and Trying Times of a Near-Perfect Purebred

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Journalist Josh Dean tells the story of a loveable Australian Shepherd, Jack, on his novice tour through the exciting world of professional dog showing, following Jack from his first competitions in local school gymnasiums all the way to the great granddaddy of them all, the Westminster Dog Show. A veteran journalist, Dean shines a warm, steady light on the trials that Jack and his plucky, dedicated owners come to face, and uses their story to explore the larger histories of dog shows themselves; the fascinating and sometimes bizarre history of purebred dogs; and our complex, heartfelt relationships to the pets we grow to love. For dog lovers, readers of Marley & Me, Merle’s Door, and Oogy, and fans of Best in Show, Dean’s Show Dog is an irresistible instant classic.

Customer Reviews

Woof!

Interesting look into the dog show and breeding world

Show Dog

This book took me back to the first times my Aussie was shown. He too was difficult, but when that leash came out, he was all business. This is a humorous true to life account of show dog life. Aussies just make it fun!
