Diamonds are a girl's best friend, so the song says, but they don't offer the true companionship that a dog can. Loyalty, steadfastness, unconditional love -- these are all signs of the bond between woman and dog. Celebrating that special bond in words and pictures is A Girl's Best Friend. Vintage photography and artwork matched with a spacious design and muted colors give a nostalgic feel. Amusing quotes from literature and light-hearted text, written by Joanna Sandsmark, offer a charming look at canine and feminine behavior, covering subjects from treats, exercise, and etiquette to history's famous dog lovers and dog heroics.
