Book Description
This book is about a man, his wife, and 600 pounds of dog, all living in the same small house in the counry.

What is their daily routine? What changes must they make in their life in order to fit these dogs into their 24-hour days? What types of adventures fill their lives? This book lets the reader experience this way of life through the eyes of the author. It highlights the comical, sad and loving aspects of sharing and devoting one's days to these lovable gentle ciants called "The Newfoundland Dog."

Readers will learn a little about the history of the dog, and a lot about their personality and character and how they fit so well into family life. The author also introduces th reader to the world of the Newfoundland as a therapy dog, and how they help others in need by providing their valued companionship, support and sensitivity. The book is interspersed with many photos which were selected specifically to depict the story being told and gives the reader an accurate picture of what life is like among the giants.

"Life Among the Giants" is a most enjoyable book, both from a breeder's viewpoint and as dog-lover. This book tells about the joys and the difficulties of owning, not just one, but several of these hairy, slobbery beasts. The writer's love for these dogs shines through. A must for any Newf owner or anyone considering getting a Newfoundfand dog!"
