The saying goes that a dog is man’s best friend, but in our experience, a dog is more like a mischievous younger sibling that gets sticky fingerprints on all your belongings and messes up your newly tidied bedroom but is far too cute to be upset with.

Dogs are family. They are protective, loyal, and unconditionally loving. Unfortunately, too many dogs are without families, and each year millions of lost or abandoned dogs enter shelters.

As a major publisher of books about nature, animals, and pets, dog rescue is a cause close to Firefly’s heart. With every copy of Rover: Wagmore Edition sold, we make a donation to dog rescue. (It’s our book of the month for August, and you could win a copy. Enter here.)

In honour of National Dog Day on August 26th — and of last weekend’s International Homeless Animals Day — we’ve pulled together a quiz to help you decide what type of dog would be a great fit for your family.

“Photographer Andrew Grant allows us a glimpse into the beautiful eyes and souls of hundreds of dogs, many of which are shelter and rescue dogs awaiting their forever homes . . . A beautiful coffee table book . . . A collection of some of his most heartwarming and soulful dog portraits.”

August is a big month for animal lovers, with three pet-inspired celebrations taking place. First is International Cat Day on August 6th, while National Dog Day falls on August 26th. (You can find all of our cat and dog books here.)

As part of IHAD, our book of the month for August is Rover: Wagmore Edition, a stunning collection of dog portraits from photographer and founder of the Rover Works Project Andrew Grant.

Our fathers do so much for us. When we’re children, they help us with our homework and coach our sports teams. They take us canoeing and read us bedtime stories.

In adulthood, they share their interests with us, from photography to physics, and force food on us every time we visit.

Though every dad is unique, they all have one thing in common: they want the best for their families.

And since they go out of their way to give us their best, we thought that this year you should go out of your way to give your dad his best Father’s Day gift ever.
