38 Ex­tra­or­di­nary Tales of Love, Loy­alty, and Life With Dogs By Re­becca Ascher-Walsh Na­tional Ge­o­graphic So­ci­ety, 160 pages, $18 FAITH, a two-legged part-chow who walks on her hind legs, and Rosie, a New York court­house dog who com­forts ner­vous chil­dren on the wit­ness stand, are just a cou­ple of the 38 pooches you’ll meet in this poignant col­lec­tion of re­mark­able ca­nines and the ex­tra­or­di­nary he­roes who saved them. Dog lovers et al. will en­joy the sprin­kling of fas­ci­nat­ing Fido facts and sta­tis­tics. But it’s the heart-wrench­ing, in­spir­ing tales of com­pan­ion­ship that will leave you won­der­ing why we all don’t res­cue a mis­treated, in­jured or aban­doned pup.
