It’s said that looking at pictures of babies and animals is a quick way to inject some happiness in to your day. This is likely why videos of baby animals are so popular on YouTube. Therefore, to say that DK Canada’s The Dog Encyclopedia was a book of happiness wouldn’t be much of a stretch.
The crisp, full-colour images make it seem like you could reach out and pet the dogs in this book. It’s no secret to those who know me, that I have long wanted a dog or three. Though I’m not in a place in my life to be able to take on that kind of responsibility, the Dog Encyclopedia has helped me to research the different breeds out there so that I can narrow down my wish list. Having different types of dogs really depend on one’s lifestyle. Big and shaggy? Not great for an apartment you can barely turn around in—though they may be lower-energy and far less barky than smaller dogs. It really is a toss-up sometimes!
