The Art of Racing in the Rain

97 Ways to Make Your Dog Smile
A gift of pure pleasure for dogs and the owners who love them. Created by Jenny Langbehn, a veterinary nurse who really knows what makes dogs happy, it combines the creative gift of touch–unexpected ways to rub, massage, scratch, tickle, and knead–with imaginative play scenarios that are just loopy enough to ensure that your dog will be amused, whether he’s laughing with you or at you. And to heighten the pleasure of both reader and dog, adorable full-color photographs of smiling dogs accompany each entry. Just look at those dogs (you might say), what a tail-wagging, chop-licking, howling good time they’re having. And see if your dog doesn’t agree.
