Tip 1: "On days out at the beach, always be the first in the family to get out of the car, on to the beach, and into the water. Always be the last in the family to get out of the water, on to the beach, and into the car. Remember to shake excess sea water from your fur once you're inside the car." Tip 2: "Humans may refrain from passing you food to test. To them, a piece of salmon, followed by liquorice, a chocolate cake, and a selection of vegetables is a foul combination. Humans believe meals should be categorized into three courses: a starter, a main course, a dessert. Disavow them of this. Food is food is food." Tip 3: "Always make sure you have more energy at the end of the walk than you did at the beginning. Believe me, humans love the futility of taking you for a walk to tire you out." A canny little manual for canines everywhere.

Martin Clunes is happy to admit that with Mary, it was love at first sight; her soft, brown eyes, her perfect figure and that unstoppable wagging tail. As cocker spaniels go, she was perfect. Mary was soon joined in the Clunes' household by Tina, another cocker, and Arthur, a black Labrador. Reminiscent of "Marley & Me," the dynamics between the three dogs makes hilarious reading--puppy classes, Scrufts, and the competition for top dog status (and even Martin has to fight for this), which leads to visits from a dog psychologist. His passion for dogs inspired Martin to embark on a journey of discovery about their ancestors, both wild--the painted dogs of Tanzania--and extremely tame--the members of the Beverley Hills Mutt Club. With his trademark warmth and humor, Martin describes meeting a worldwide cast of doggie characters, and how humans have shaped the dog world as we know it today. One thing is certain--he will never see Mary, Tina, and Arthur in quite the same way again.

Dogs have been at the heart of Country Life magazine ever since it was first published in 1897. The very first issue on January 8 featured the Princess of Wales with her borzoi, Alex.
