Dog Book Review: Spott's Canine Miscellany by Mark Darton

Hey, folks. I am once again proud to say that I've finished one of the dog books in my so-called mini-dog library. Spott's Canine Miscellany by Mark Darton makes a wonderful coffee table book.  This said, I am glad I've finished reading the entire 93 pages of dog trivia and facts. 

Spott's Canine Miscellany by Mark Darton Front Cover
The dog book contains dog related trivia, facts, medical and behavioral explanations, poems, short stories, sayings and terms that a dog lover should know about. 

When it comes to reading about dog trivia, Spott's Canine Miscellany may just be the book for you.

For instance, did you know that...

  • Statistically speaking, female dog bites are twice as many as male dog bites.
  • Dogs circle 3 times on average before they settle down in their resting spot. This is probably the reason why most dog beds are round-shaped.
  • Dog tail-wagging isn't instinct. They learn this behavior during their first social encounters (most often from their mothers and siblings). By 7 weeks of age, puppies will have learned tail signals which is a necessary skill to be able communicate with others.

Spott's Canine Miscellany even has its own special black ribbon bookmark. 

I just love that I was able find this doggy treasure in a second hand book store

This book cost me $0.40.
