Journalist and travel writer Verite' Reily Collins has always had a Border Terrier with which to share her life. This book deals with the delights (and perils!) of Border Terrier ownership. As well as a history of the breed, it includes many anecdotes, humorous and touching, about Border Terriers and their owners. Chapters dealing with practical topics include a detailed one on travelling with dogs, and Steve Dean and Johanna Farrer have contributed chapters on breeding and agility respectively. About the Border Terrier will appeal to anyone who is interested in the breed. More importantly, if you feel you would like to own one, Verite' Reily Collins hopes that her book will help you to decide whether this delightful terrier, bred for work and retaining all its working instincts, is the right dog for you.
