A vintage book celebrating dogs and their aristocratic owners. Thirty owners, including The Duchess of Roxburghe, The Queen and The Queen Mother, Princess Anne, and Lavinia, Duchess of Norfolk, have been photographed with their dogs in their country homes. The text, which is unintentionally hard to read with a straight face, offers up pooch tales and problems, such as how to house-train a puppy in a 75-room castle.
