Interesting Quotes:

"In the last 4-5 years, parvovirus in the US has been the biggest problem for kennels, even in vaccinated dogs."
(Foster-Smith Pet
Catalog, Vol. 03-57)

***

"She was a seven-month-old, gorgeous, taupe-colored devil in dogs clothing. But I loved her."
(Paul Loeb)

***

"The diet of our companion animals is deplorable. So many dogs and cats eat out of bags full of poor ingredients, rancid fats and powerful preservatives."
(Don Hamilton, DVM
from Homeopathic Care for Cats and Dogs)

***

Command; he thee obeys most readily.
Strike him; he whines and falls down at thy feet.
Call him; he leaves his game and comes to thee
With wagging tail,
offering his service meek.

If so thou wilt, a collar he will wear;
And when thou wish to take it off again,
Unto thy feet he crouchest down most fair,
As if thy will were all his good and gain.
(J. Molle)

***

"The more confidence you have in your dog, the more he will believe in you."
(From: Smarter Than You Think, by Paul Loeb)

***

"The housebound dog leads a stressed existence. It cannot express its natural behaviors: stalking, chasing, exploring, investigating."
(From: The Dog's Mind, by Bruce Fogle)

 

 

 

 

FAVORITE DOG BOOKS

Breed Books

*Fogel, Bruce, D.V.M., THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE DOG
(The best thing about this book is the pictures. Full color; and some of the expressions on the dogs' faces are priceless. Presents hundreds of breeds, many of whom are rare, ones you probably have never heard of. This book is where we first learned about the Caucasian Ovtcharka. (Although, I am sorry to say, in his latest edition, he uses the incorrect term "mountain dog" to refer to our breed.)

* Palika, Liz, THE HOWEL BOOK OF DOGS
(A definitive reference to 300 breeds and varieties of dogs, including rare breeds. You can see our Vitaly on page 189.)

Health & Nutrition

* Billinghurst, Ian, D.V.M., GIVE YOUR DOG A BONE and FEED YOUR PUP ON BONES and THE BARF DIET (three books).
(A definite must! The bible for raw-food feeding.)

* Hamilton, Don, D.V.M.,
HOMEOPATHIC CARE FOR CATS AND DOGS; SMALL DOSES FOR SMALL ANIMALS.
(A very compelling chapter on vaccinations.)

* Pitcairn, Richard, D.V.M., DR. PITCAIRN'S COMPLETE GUIDE TO NATURAL HEALTH FOR DOGS AND CATS.

* Goldstein, Martin, D.V.M., THE NATURE OF ANIMAL HEALING.

* Stein, Dianne, THE NATURAL REMEDY BOOK FOR DOGS AND CATS.

*Shojai, Amy, THE FIRST AID COMPANION FOR DOGS & CATS
(A great reference on what to do now, what to do later about everyday accidents and emergencies.)

(Read this book, and you won't want to drink store-bought milk again.)

Training & Psychology

* Holmes, John and Mary, THE COMPLETE AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG.
(This is Blue's favorite book, but also has some very interesting information that applies to any breed.)

* "Whole Dog Journal Magazine."
(A wonderful magazine advocating holistic canine health care and safe training methods while giving both sides of the arguments.)

Vaccines

* Diodati, Catherine J.M., M.A., VACCINE GUIDE FOR DOGS & CATS: WHAT EVERY PET OWNER SHOULD KNOW.

* Miller, Neil Z., VACCINES: ARE THEY REALLY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?

* Peters, Peter J., WARNING: VACCINATIONS ARE DANGEROUS.

I
