This feel-good collection of stories and essays is the perfect addition to any dog lover's collection. Short enough to be read in small increments, but engrossing enough to read in one gulp, it includes stories that will appeal to any mood. Funny tales, such as Anne C. Watkins' Taffy, the Unexpected Guard Dog will tickle your fancy and put a smile on your face.

The serious, heartfelt stories do outnumber the humorous ones. Memories of childhood dogs, faithful companions, and heroic animals will reach into your soul. Kathryn Lay's Cindy, a Dog Who Listened will touch readers who know of a dog's capacity for listening when no one else will. Kristi Hemingway's Nikki shows the incredible bond that can develop between a dog and an elderly person. A Real-Life Lassie by Virginia Bowen sings the praises of a faithful friend.

There are numerous stories, and dog lovers will have no problem finding one with which they can identify. Also included are lists of favorite canine books and movies, sure to spur the reader on to further dog-loving fun. A Prince among Dogs would make an excellent gift for the dog lover in your life (even if it's yourself!)
