Inhaltsangabe: Breedfreak: The Dog Breed Guide for Normal People, With Real Lives Families, Houses and Budgets is a complete guide to picking a dog breed. While other atlases and breed organizations have financial interest in making sure you think their breed is flawless, we are here to lift the veil and give you the dog breed secrets that all vets, behaviorists, and dog trainers know but are afraid to tell you.
Each breed entry includes a thorough, extremely biased, and remarkably opinionated breed description; an estimate of what you can expect to spend on your dog (hint: it is more than you think) and a whopping dose of humor to keep you interested. In addition to the breed entries there are several background chapters with excruciatingly important information you need to know about selecting a breed.
So, I was standing there in a bookstore buying a cookbook and sitting on the floor behind me were two college age kids looking through a dog breed guide. They were barely able to contain their excitement and were saying things like "lets get a Chow - they look like a teddy bear" and "we should get a German Shorthair Pointer, this book says they should be just fine with a little exercise."
Granted, I did not look like an official vet standing there in my scooter jacket but felt like I could offer some help and said, "don't get a German Short Hair Pointer or a Chow. One will eat your house and the other will bite your face." My pleas felt on deaf ears as they looked up at me as if to say "OK creepy dude in your scooter jacket, mind your own business, and go play with your Barefoot Contessa."
This book was written for every person who has read a dog breed atlas and thought "what is it really like to own this dog?" or "this dog breed atlas says every breed will work for me. They can't all possibly work for me." The truth of the matter is that if you live in a normal house, with a normal budget, and a job, and maybe a significant other, and have other things to do than worry about your dog chewing up your house or taking them for 5 hour hike every day - every dog is not perfect for you. I hope you like the book and please do not shoot the messenger or get offended if I insult your favorite breed. - Matt
