I bought this as a resource for my local shelter, as they get Aussies and German Shepherds and Collies mixed up. I was really annoyed to find that the book used line drawing instead of photographs...and not very good line drawings, either. I'd expect someone with the name-recognition clout of Desmond Morris could have spent the extra dime for better illustrations. Using photos on the cover was just deceptive.
