   Have you noticed that there are dozens of different kinds of dogs? There are really big ones, and teeny tiny ones. There are dogs that are tough, and others that are total pushovers. There are dogs that bark up a storm, and dogs that are very quiet. There are good dogs who fetch slippers, and there are bad ones that chew slippers to bits. All of these dogs are loved by the narrator of this story, but there is one kind in particular that the narrator likes the best.
    Dog loving readers of all ages are sure to enjoy this amusing and clever picture book. There is a dog for everyone on the pages, and readers will enjoy trying to decide which of all the pooches is their favorite. Just in case readers get too complacent, there is an  unexpected ending that is deliciously funny.
