One of my collections you might not know about is my collection of antique dog books from the 19020’s - 1950’s. It’s really interesting being able to see just how much certain breeds have changed.

Here’s some examples from my favorite book in my collection: The Complete Book Of The Dog by Robert Leighton, published in 1922. I love how the dogs still look functional and capable of doing the job they were created for, especially the terriers and herding breeds. Old style shelties are a particular favorite of mine.
