Lauri just surprised me with a new book (in memory of our little Nell) called "Mastiff Images".  It was written by Hans Rosingh (Netherlands).  So far, it's wonderful.

I love Mastiff Images, I truly treasure my copy. I love the photos and I love the diary entries. I only wish I knew someone who knows Dutch who could translate the last part of the book!

I am a bookworm, and a shopaholic lol, damned eBay! Anyway, upon the recommendations of a valued member of this board I have acquired several Mastiff books, some out of print, some not.

Out of all of the books I have about Mastiffs, hands down my favorite is
The History and Management of the Mastiff by Baxter & Hoffman.

A close runner up is the Mastiff and Bullmastiff Handbook by D. Oliff.

I love the older books for the pictures (I DO know how to read the other stuff lol)-hey I can admit I don't just read them for the articles!

I have moved to reading more breeding and whelping books, although I have to admit I am not making any progress with Breeding Better Dogs by Battaglia.

Anyone else? Anyone have any recommendations?

AN EYE FOR A DOG - ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO JUDGING PUREBRED DOGS
by Robert Cole
Item: DSH160
2004 Dog Writers Assn. of America Writing Competition Winner, Best Reference Book! Have you ever wondered how dog show judges learn to identify the subtle differences that separate a dog that is merely good from a dog that is outstanding? Now you can develop your own eye for sound movement and structure and learn how color, marking, size, and even leash position affect the judge’s perception. You get to actively participate in over 100 judging scenarios similar to what a judge encounters in the show ring and compare your opinion with the author’s. Dog Writers Association award winner.
Ships the next business day.
Price: $22.95

Quote:

I highly recommend this book for mastiff owners and all breed fanciers who wish to understand subtle structural differences that can influence a judge's eye. After reading the book, one might have a better understanding of "daylight" under the dog, among other things and how it can impact on overall form!
