From the back cover: Big dogs, small dogs, bad dogs, good dogs, Australian dingoes, South African bush dogs, town dogs, country dogs - all make their appearance in this outstanding collection of contemporary dog stories. Such celebrated writers as Doris Lessing, Tobias Wolff, Raymond Carver, John Updike, Ann Beattie and William Trevor depict the wide range of man’s experience of the dog - and the dog’s of man - in stories that, occasionally harrowing, more often warm and life-enhancing, will be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of any dog-lover, or simply any lover of good contemporary fiction.

Despite the title these weren’t really festive stories. Many of them were actually quite sad. Some I liked more than others but my favourite was definitely Winter Dog by Alistair MacLeod.

The editor of this book was bitten by a black & white chihuahua as a kid...

I will be going to a dog show in Iceland in a few weeks time and thought this would be a great book to leave at the show, but I have to jump over the first chapter a) due to its cruelty (trapping) and b) the writer's total ignorance of canine anatomy, when he talks about the knee of the front leg. Agrh!

Second chapter: Hello from your grammar police! The story tells that stray dogs gather beneath "my's room" at night time. I'll give up on this book and will try to release it somewhere nobody can find it...
