News for dogs and dog lovers to smile about: The irresistible bestseller is now even more irresistible with a 4-by-6-inch "chunky" format. As quirky, colorful, and giftable as ever, 97 Ways to Make a Dog Smile is now fresher and more appealing.
Developed by Jenny Langbehn, a veterinary nurse who has a gift for making dogs happy, here are 97 foolproof methods and tricks for putting any dog into a state of pure pleasure. Enhancing each entry is an adorable, full-color photograph of the guaranteed result--a smiling dog. Give these a try: Lower-Ear Noogies. The Thumper. Lazy Man's Tetherball. The Hansel and Gretel--"For an afternoon of fun, scamper about the house leaving a trail of plain popped popcorn in your wake." Or "Subliminal Game," which works by sneaking a favorite word like "cookie" into otherwise boring jabber.*
The tricks require no fancy props or special talents--just a willingness to surrender yourself to sheer silliness. They combine the creative gift of touch-- unexpected ways to rub, massage, scratch, tickle, and knead--with imaginative play scenarios that are just loopy enough to ensure your dog will be amused, whether he's laughing with you or at you. These tricks really work.
*Don't forget to have said cookie on hand.
