Why has Fido become a generic term for all dogs? Why did hundreds of people collect dog faeces and sell it? Dogs never eat other dogs, so why is it a dog-eat-dog world? Did any dogs survive the Titanic? What is a Yorkipoo? Do mad dogs really go out in the midday sun? Every Dog Has Its Day pays homage to mans best friend, telling the stories of famous dogs in history, tracing the origins of some of our favourite breeds, showing how dogs have become a significant part of our language, and describing the amazing range of activities in which dogs are involved. Written with Max Cryers characteristic light touch and sense of humour, this is a fascinating and sometimes surprising collection of historical facts and eccentricities of language. It will delight all dog-lovers and anyone with a morsel of interest in the world around them. Max Cryer is a well-known writer, broadcaster and entertainer. Now a full-time writer living in Auckland, he has written many books, including Who Said That First?, Love Me Tender, The Godzone Dictionary, Preposterous Proverbs and Curious English Words and Phrases.
