Dogue De Bordeaux

A Comprehensive Owner's Guide
Author: Joseph Janish
Publisher: i5 Publishing
ISBN: 1593788460
Category: Pets
Page: 158
View: 5458
With a name that rightly conjures images of lush vineyards, the Dogue de Bordeaux indeed comes from the world’s wine capital in southwestern France. Like the rich red Bordeaux wine, the Dogue de Bordeaux is draped in a deep red coat and boasts the most magnificent head in dogdom. As author Joe Janish reveals in this full-color introduction to the breed, the Dogue de Bordeaux has a heart as impressive as his head and makes a sincere and fun-loving companion for the right owner and family. Naturally a 130-pound mastiff dog is not a dog for everyone, and the Dogue is a guardian breed of relentless power and great agility. This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide dedicated to Dogue de Bordeaux begins with a chapter on the breed’s history, tracing its origins and spread to the United States, England, and various European countries. The chapter on characteristics provides an overview of the breed’s temperament, physical characteristics, activity level, and health concerns, all the information a potential owner needs to determine whether this remarkable French mastiff breed is the Dogue from him or her. New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, exercise, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.

Francisco Goya is widely celebrated as the most important Spanish artist of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the last of the Old Masters and the first of the Moderns, and an astute observer of the human condition in all its complexity. Few, however, have made the ambitious attempt to explore his work as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman across media and the timeline of his life. This book does just that, presenting a comprehensive and integrated view of Goya's most important work through the themes that continually challenged or preoccupied the artist. They reveal how he strove relentlessly to understand and describe human behavior and emotional states, even at their most orderly or disorderly extremes. Derived from the research for the largest Goya exhibition in North America in a quarter century, this book takes a fresh look at one of the greatest artists in history by examining the fertile territory between the two poles that defined the range of his boundlessly creative personality.
