Children are given a well-rounded understanding of this beautiful animal: its anatomy, feeding habits and behavior. *** You and your kids will love learning about Dogs*** Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1 Early History Chapter 2 Fascinating Features & Care Chapter 3 Amazing German Shepherd's facts Conclusion Man's best friend Author Bio Introduction German Shepherds are intelligent, versatile and faithful dogs. They have outstanding characteristics, and excel in almost anything they do. This breed is well known and among the 10 most popular breeds in the U.S. But, what makes them so popular? To begin with, their skills extend beyond the home. They are used in law enforcement, serving with police and even the military. They also help with special needs. For example: With those who are handicapped and require constant attention. However, their skills do not end there. Does the name Rin-Tin-Tin ring a bell? He was quite famous and appeared in many movies and shows. He was so popular he received hundreds of fan letters, sometimes thousands per week! And after the World Trade Center disaster, faithful German shepherd dogs risked their lives to comfort rescue workers and help find those who were missing. German shepherds are also excellent watchdogs. Their alert and often suspicious nature, can serve to protect both you and your family from strangers. However, this aspect of their personality may not appeal to you, if you are looking for a more guest friendly dog. This breed has a high energy level. Originally when this dog was first bred, it was for working purposes. The idea was to help herd flocks, get them into groups and so on. This all day task helped to shape a strong and high energy dog that requires a lot of activities to keep their attention. It is important to take note of this part of their personality. Why? Well, if they do not get the attention they need their boredom (even frustration) will shine through, with lots of barking and chewing. Depending on how loud it gets, it may drive you up the wall! Despite this aspect of their personality, there is no doubt German Shepherds are amazing dogs, and a wonderful asset to any home. And with proper training and loving attention, they will stand by you through thick and thin. Not a bad description to add to the list of? man?s best friend! Read More

Pour et Mrs Dursley, qui habitaient au 4, Privet Drive, avaient toujours affirmé avec la plus grande fierté qu'ils étaient parfait...ement nor­maux, merci pour eux. Jamais quiconque n'aurait imaginé qu'ils puissent se trouver impliqués dans quoi que ce soit d'étrange ou de mystérieux. Ils n'avaient pas de temps à perdre avec des sornettes.<br>Mr Dursley dirigeait la Grunnings, une entreprise qui fabriquait des per­ceuses. C'était un homme grand et massif, qui n'avait pratiquement pas de cou, mais possédait en revanche une moustache de belle taille. Mrs Dursley, quant à elle, était mince et blonde et disposait d'un cou deux fois plus long que la moyenne, ce qui lui était fort utile pour espionner ses voi­sins en regardant par-dessus les clôtures des jardins. Les Dursley avaient un petit garçon prénommé Dudley et c'était à leurs yeux le plus bel enfant du monde.<br>Les Dursley avaient tout ce qu'ils voulaient. La seule chose indésirable qu'ils possédaient, c'était un secret dont ils craignaient plus que tout qu'on le découvre un jour. Si jamais quiconque venait à entendre parler des Potter, ils étaient convaincus qu'ils ne s'en remettraient pas. Mrs Potter était la soeur de Mrs Dursley, mais toutes deux ne s'étaient plus revues depuis des années. En fait, Mrs Dursley faisait comme si elle était fille unique, car sa soeur et son bon à rien de mari étaient aussi éloignés que possible de tout ce qui faisait un Dursley. Les Dursley tremblaient d'épou­vante à la pensée de ce que diraient les voisins si par malheur les Potter se montraient dans leur rue. Ils savaient que les Potter, eux aussi, avaient un petit garçon, mais ils ne l'avaient jamais vu. Son existence constituait une raison supplémentaire de tenir les Potter à distance : il n'était pas question que le petit Dudley se mette à fréquenter un enfant comme celui-là Read More

She said, ?When I was last in England and Europe, very mistaken notions about Japan and especially about its women existed generally.?

The stories are not literal translations though the Japanese story and all quaint expressions have been faithfully preserved. They are told more with the view to interest young readers of the West than the technical student of folklore.
