PIMPERNEL PRESS & COUNTRY LIFE    Book Number: 84425    Product format: Hardback

Born with a silver spoon in their mouths, these shaggy doggies much prefer tales of leaping over country fences, accompanying their masters, hunting in packs of hounds, alongside horses, and looking dignified in their working lives. A proud looking Hungarian wire-haired Visla Gunner sits waiting for action during a pheasant shoot at Peasmarsh. Monty is a cross-bred German wire-haired pointer and springer spaniel. With their big black eyes and shiny noses, little beards and fluffy white hair, the Sealyham terriers help on the land and the Irish wolfhound Wolfie helps the polo ponies at Errol Park, Perthshire. Here is a beautiful lurcher with her puppies and greyhound puppies from 1933, working dogs on duty, cocker spaniel puppies, a Great Dane pictured around 1900, border terriers, a pack of fox hounds, beagles, dogs watching cricket, enjoying the chase, Maud and Bingo the pugs, Hattie a wire-haired standard dachshund at Castle Howard, Yorkshire and sprocker gun dogs in Perthshire. Dogs have been at the heart of Country Life magazine ever since it was first published in 1897. The very first issue featured the Princess of Wales with her borzoi Alex. A week later, the second issue went behind the scenes of the Prince of Wales's kennels. Since then all breeds whether working dogs, pampered pets, champion pedigrees or mixed breeds have been included and here is a superb celebration of these canines. A beautiful photography book celebrating the English countryside as background to these beautiful hounds. Full page photos in colour and black and white, 112 landscape pages.
