by Joan Bailey
A clear-eyed look at the development of the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. Field & Stream's gun dog editor, Bill Tarrant says, "Joan Bailey's new book...is all inclusive, definitive, fast-paced, joyfully put together, and has the answers to [questions about] Griffons each of us has yet to think about asking."
Outdoor Life's hunting dog editor, Larry Mueller says in the Foreword of Griffon - Gun Dog Supreme: "Because of her truth and honesty, Griffons and their breeders will benefit from this book for all time...This is THE breed book for ALL breeds." In 1988 Larry wrote: "Cooperation among owners instead of competition is the way to do it, as proved by the startling success of the Griffon Club. The breed was brought back from the lip of oblivion, and every dog owner can learn a lot from the way it was done."
