This classic from the pen of author and artist Cecil Aldin chronicles the lives of his own dogs — Micky, an Irish wolfhound, and Cracker, a bull terrier — and offers a charming book of practical advice for would-be dog owners and trainers. In addition to tips and suggestions that are as true and effective today as they were 80 years ago, Aldin recounts delightful stories about dogs and their antics, accompanied by dozens of enchanting illustrations. Many dogs and breeds make cameos in these pages, most of them ordinary pets rather than champions or prize-winners. Along with Micky and Cracker, they illustrate anecdotes related to feeding, training, curing bad habits, and otherwise bringing up a "dog of character."
