The Best Dog in the World
By Donna Long
Hardcover, 128 pages ($14.95)

A tail-wagging treat for pet lovers of every kind, this collection of 120 antique photographs of children and their pet pooches, all taken between 1875 and 1925, also includes a bounty of information about canine breeds, when they became popular in America, and the many reasons they’ve always captured human hearts. Cuddling up with “The Best Dog in the World” feels like stepping into a time tunnel and slipping into a long-ago childhood where no worry couldn’t be soothed away by cuddling up next to the best dog in the world—your’s.
