'Dogs - As Companions; As Prizewinners; As A Career'

Charming vintage book written by Betty Penn-Bull, who was president of the Scottish Terrier breeders and exhibitors association and an icon in the world of Scottish Terriers. She was a celebrated author, journalist and teacher - breeding and exhibiting her world- famous Scots under the Kennelgarth prefix.

This is a slim volume 122 page (plus adverts) hardback book, with beige cover boards.
It contains information on breeding, grooming and showing dogs, as well as how to choose your pet. There is a gorgeous illustration of a Scottish Terrier by Lucy Dawson on the cover, as well as numerous black & white photos, and illustrations inside and two pages of contemporary advertisements.

Really informative and practical - would make a great gift for a dog lover, breeder, or dog groomer - or just someone who's into retro doggie memorabilia!

Wonderful nostalgic item - very evocative of its time.

Large crack inside back cover (visible as a crease from outside) - see photos.
Aside from that, good used, vintage condition.
Small crease on one top corner of cover.
Inscription on flyleaf
Small pen marks on one page (see picture) - otherwise excellent clean pages.

Published in 1946 by S.P.B.A Supplies Ltd, London.
Hardback. No Dust Jacket.
122 pages.
Approx size: 8.5"x 5.5"

Thanks for looking :-)
