Watch Dogs and Precious Pooches – don’t forget about Snoopy

Dwight, one of our veterinary colleagues, sent me a pamphlet on the military working dog that includes a list of references animal-lovers may want to add to their survival bookshelf. 

Anyone with working dogs, watch dogs, or beloved pets will want to know how to care for these members of the extended family. 

The following lists are excerpted from:
