Considered by many to be the perfect family dog, the golden retriever is known for its kind disposition, gentle demeanor, and strawberry-blond fur. In The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters, respected obedience instructor--and die-hard golden fan--Julie Cairns celebrates the breed and gives readers even more reasons to respect this lovable dog. From choosing, caring for, and living with a golden, to breeding, showing, and field training, Cairns's valuable advice--both informative and entertaining--is coupled with full-color photographs and line drawings throughout, making this delightful book as much fun to look at as it is to read. --Jennifer Pugh Related Product: - What My Golden Retriever Taught Me About God - Golden Retrievers For Dummies - Love of Goldens: The Ultimate Tribute to Golden Retrievers (Petlife Library) - The Golden Retriever (Terra Nova Series) - Just Goldens (Just Pets (Half Pint Edition)) http://astore.amazon.com/konhollow-20/detail/0876050410 http://store.xiiiv.com/?t=the-golden-retriever-that-glitters-howells-best-breed-library&i=0876050410 Customer Reviews: 23 of 23 people found the following review helpful Interesting, complete, with beautiful photography, October 4, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters (Howell's Best of Breed Library) (Hardcover) "The Golden Retriever: All that Glitters" is a beautiful, informative book that's large enough to cover many topics thoroughly. It is written in a clear, enjoyable manner, with terrific (if not very large) photographs. Jamie Cairns truly knows, loves, and understands Goldens, and it shows in her comprehensive and occasionally humorous coverage of "Living with a Golden Retriever". She provides good information on health and maintenance issues, and more time than usual discussing field, obedience, agility, and other topics. The section on "Caring for the Older Golden Retriever" is both interesting and uncommon. The author leans toward field-bred Goldens rather than conformational, and this is reflected both in the text and especially the photography. It's not typical, and I loved it.All-in-all, a beautiful and well-done book that would be a great addition to every Golden-lover's bookshelf. 22 of 23 people found the following review helpful Something For Everyone Who Loves Goldens, February 27, 2000 By Lory Worthing (Minnesota) This review is from: The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters (Howell's Best of Breed Library) (Hardcover) If you love Goldens, this is the book for you. Ms. Cairns covers the spectrum from family pets to hunting and field dogs to outstanding show dogs. The book is filled with lovely pictures and wonderful thoughts on puppies, active adults and an especially nice section on the joys of the older dog. The book is a visual treat and something you will be proud to add to your library. 14 of 14 people found the following review helpful A golden book on Golden Retrievers., August 24, 1999 By email@example.com (Buffalo, New York) This review is from: The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters (Howell's Best of Breed Library) (Hardcover) If an owner of a new Golden Retriever can buy just one book, make it this one!
