" 'If Labs were people', writes author Tom Davis ' they'd be the surgeons, accountants, attorneys, and CEOs -- successful, um, a little predictable. ' Golden's, in contrast, are right-side, Type B dogs: imaginative, mellow, enemies of routines ... quirky, fun-rubbing, and full of surprises. You'd want a Labrador to handle your money, but should want a Golden to throw your party. A couple of hours and the festivities, it's the one wearing the lampshade.' " -- from the front fold over panel blurb. Minor rubbing to the book corners and very slight cocking of the spine. Size: Oblong 8vo - 7¾" - 9¾" tall but wider.
