Finished Book: Canine Body Language: A Photographic Guide: Interpreting the Native Language of the Domestic Dog
I'm loving my vacation so far. The weather is a little hot down here in Myrtle Beach, SC, but there is water everywhere so it's easy to cool down.
During the drive down from Wisconsin I started reading Brenda Aloff's book
Canine Body Language: A Photographic Guide: Interpreting the Native Language of the Domestic Dog. I finished it this morning (well, except for the "Quiz Section" which I'm doing on the way back home tomorrow) and WOW, what a fantastic, comprehensive read!! There are tons of pictures and the book is broken up into really nice chapters with thorough explanations. Brenda writes with a great sense of knowledge and communicates in a straight-forward, matter-of-fact tone, but sprinkles in humor here and there. I especially like her description of dogs who are in a reactive state (in hind-brain) as being Lizard Brains. Lovely! I have a new nickname for Oscar and Fanny when they are being nuts-o! :)
So, so all my doggy buds, give it a read. If you're nice to me, I'll even loan it to you (I've marked the size spine with the infamous "HOLDER" so you won't be tempted to steal it!).
