In the bestselling spirit of "Why Do Men Have Nipples?" comes this irreverent yet informative look at the myths, behaviors and surprising facts about our canine companions. When you open your home and your heart to a dog, you open a Pandora's box of questions: How can I get him to stop jumping on my friends and family? Why is she eating her own poop and should I try to stop this? In this entertaining book, Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Favorite Vet," and syndicated columnist Gina Spadafori give pet owners the skinny on things they may think about but never dare to ask about dogs, like: How do seeing-eye dogs know when a red light changes to green? Can dogs get sunburned? Are dogs ticklish? Can you re-name your adopted dog if you hate his name? Can dogs cure asthma? Should dogs wear seat belts? Can dogs really hear those silent whistles? Whats the best way to break up a dog fight? Why do dogs get stuck together and face away from each other after mating? (that doesn't look comfortable) Can a grown dog recognize his littermates if he sees them years after being separated? Can you trust someone your dog doesn't like? Do female dogs have "biological clocks"? Why do dogs love to swim but hate to take baths? With its mix of humor and practical information, this book is the perfect gift for dog-lovers.
