The Cat & Dog
Item Numbers: UF2002, UF2002G, UF2152
"A cat pours his body on the floor like
water. It is restful just to see him."
--William Lyon Phelps
"In ancient times cats were worshipped
as gods; they have not forgotten this."
"If I have any beliefs about immortality,
it is that certain dogs I have known will
go to heaven, and very, very few persons." --James Thurber
"If animals could speak, the dog would be
a blundering outspoken fellow." --Mark Twain
These little (about 6"-square) books pair irresistibly adorable photos of cats or dogs with creative feline- or canine-themed quotations. Both animals are handsomely showcased doing what they do best--in general: sleeping and prowling (cats), and sleeping and frolicking (dogs). The Cat and The Dog both make joyfully charming gifts for animal lovers. (CH)
Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet
Members' Price: $13.59
Item Number: UF3302
By further pulling back the curtain on dogs’ inner lives, the new school of canine science has the potential to provide everyday dog owners with new ways of thinking about--and relating to--their pets....Some of this research has revealed startling differences between dogs and people, suggesting that it is both desirable and possible for dog owners to "think dog" rather than simply assuming that whatever they themselves are sensing and feeling, their dog must be sensing and feeling too.
I love my dog--but I must admit that I didn't have a clue as to what might be going on in his fascinating little dog brain until I got Dog Sense. John Bradshaw shares the latest animal behavior science to reveal how dogs evolved, what their emotional and intellectual capabilities are, the underlying principles of canine genetics and breeding, and how we can help dogs adapt to our rapidly changing world. Be kind to your furry, four-legged best friend by absorbing this enlightening guide to the world from a dog's perspective. (AB)

"Dog! . . . What can
be the meaning of the
obscure love for me
that has sprung up in
The photographs are enchanting: adorable, dramatic, sweet, funny, smart dogs in and among the streets and parks, cities, villages, and countryside of France. Rachael Hale somehow manages to capture the character of each dog she photographs. (Note the proud Jack Russells on the cover--Duke and Elvis, no less--guarding the secret door behind the vines.) The Parisian settings make even the scruffiest pup seem so, well, elegant. Well-chosen quotations from famous dog-lovers capture the spirit of the photographs. Plus, Hale provides contextual notes for some of her more surprising shots. Oddly enough, I know a dogloving devotee of Paris who will love this book; perhaps you do, too! (EE)

In Cats, for instance, A is for Adored (you'll learn how cats were worshipped in ancient Egypt), F is for Finicky (but there's a biological reason that your kitty turns his nose up at food!), and T is for Tail (with some helpful translations for "tail talk"). Dogs showcases the quirky personalities of many popular breeds as well as other fascinating traits that make pups such lovable companions. Both volumes function as both children's picture books as well as adult coffee-table books: The simple rhymes will delight little animal lovers (ages 4 and up) while the more in-depth factoids will fascinate more mature cat and dog people.
