This is a cute little book full of quotes straight from an office's motivation poster, which take on new, often funny, and highly appropriate meaning opposite charming photographs of our furry friends. These adorable dogs - many of them - odd-looking mutts shot in interesting poses - will charm and entertain. The dogs we know and love have a talent for living life to the fullest-they meet challenges (flying frisbees), resolve conflict (sharing food), and enjoy the moment (mid-day naps) with a grace we humans can only admire. In this delightful volume, dogs at play, dogs in thought, and dogs doing what they do are caught on film and are paired with inspirational quotes-"Keep your eye on the ball" and "Persevere in the face of difficulty"-that take on new meaning when viewed through a canine lens. In a world full of bigger dogs and elusive sticks, the way to a complete, contented, and infinitely playful existence is difficult to navigate. "Never Bite When a Growl Will Do" offers tips for the journey and is the perfect gift for dog owners and everyone who might enjoy a word or two of helpful advice and good cheer from their neighbourhood hound. Some of the quotes include: Persevere in the face of difficulty; Always give your friends a shoulder to lean on; When in doubt, sleep on it; Life is a game of give and take; Share and share alike; Let your feelings show; If what you want lies buried, dig deeper; and Don't let anyone stare you down.
