Dog Law! – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

Our collection often surprises me, and this week’s pic is no exception.  As I walked by a shelf I had passed many times before, there they were: not one, but two books on dog law.  These are just the items in our Reading Room, most of our items you have to request from the stacks.

Dog Law is by Mary Randolph.  Animal Law and Dog Behavior is by David Favre and Peter L. Borchelt.  Either book might be useful the next time Kelly does a post on a barking dog.

  1. I am really too curious about this not to ask, are there others out there?

    • Looks like we also have Every Dog’s Legal Guide (also by Mary Randolph). There are several more, including Legal Beagle, which I see from the publisher’s description is hilarious and heartwarming. You can find others by searching the catalog for “dogs law and legislation.”

  2. Humm. Why would anyone bind Dog Law? There is now a 2007 edition. Every dog’s legal guide : a must-have book for your owner / by Mary Randolph.

    These nolo titles are in paperback for a reason.

  3. The Appellate Division Law Library in Rochester, NY has an interesting title- The Law Relating to Dogs. It was published in London in 1893.

  4. Thank you for pointing out that there is a newer edition of “Dog’s Law” in print. The 2007 edition has been moved to our reading room and the 2001 edition sent to the stacks. The Law Library has a policy that all soft bound volumes are given a hard cover as part of our preservation efforts. The Law Library does not own the 1893 edition owned by the Appellate Division, but it does own the 1888 edition of the same title, as well as the 2007 reprint of the 1888 edition.
