We picked up this book in a cute little bookstore and cafe during our travels in Istanbul. While it was the eye-catching illustrated cover and title that first got our attention, it was the interesting and accurate tidbits about our dear pups that got us flipping the pages. We hope you love this book as much as we do. They make great gifts for ourselves and our loved ones!
