Marco's Comments:
While the book deals with a range of topics involving dogs, the first chapter is a good biography of Munito, the learnt dog, followed by another chapter about other clever dogs, which had been abridged for Fortean Times. The chapter on Munito is very good and Bonsedon's investigation on his skills is first class. The rest of the book is about various dogs and their skills, so not strictly magic, but still a pleasant and interesting read. The last chapter deals with ghost dogs and dogs cemeteries, which may provide some ideas for ghost stories/bizarre magic routine.
