Kerry Blue Terrier
Named for County Kerry, the Irish Blue may have derived from some legendary "blue dogs that swam shore from a ship wrecked in Tralee Bay." Sined with romance, the origins of the Kerry Blue Terrier befit this distinctive terrier among terriers. In addition to being a feisty and game earthdog, rugged enough to rid the landscape of rats and badgers, the Kerry is a versatile farm dog, a trainable hunting and herding dog, a confident watchdog and a delightful companion. Although strong-willed, as are all terriers, the Kerry excels in obedience and agility competition and possesses the confidence and panache to make heads turn in the show ring. As a companion, the Kerry Blue Terrier is able to delight dog lovers of every age with his clever and entertaining ways, his unmistakable affection for children and his unflagging devotion to his people. For the right owners, the Kerry makes an upstanding and handsome addition to a loving household.

Lakeland Terrier
This Comprehensive Owner's Guide to the Lakeland Terrier serves as a complete introduction to this unique British terrier breed known for its prowess at seeking both quarry and comedy. The Lakey, as the breed is affectionately known, is a free-thinking little devil, smaller than most of the other long-legged terriers and more easygoing. The Lakeland Terrier, named for the Lake District in Britain, is unspoiled compared to many of his more popular earthdog brethren, and yet he is equally as bold, daring, and fearless as the larger Airedale, Irish, and Welsh Terriers. Written by Patricia Peters, well-known dog illustrator and Lakeland Terrier breeder of the famed Kilfel Kennels, this Special Limited Edition offers an opening chapter on the history of the breed, from its beginnings in the Lake District to its coming to the United States in the 1920s.

In all, there are over 135 photographs in this compact, useful, and entertaining volume. The author's advice on obedience training the Lakeland Terrier, a bright and industrious breed that can pose a challenge to novice owners, will help readers better mold and train their dogs into the well-behaved canine citizens. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more.
