Sidney is a dog town. We are all aware of the many dogs that frequent the downtown streets.

For over a year Bill Kierans, a downtown Sidney resident, has been collecting candid photos of local dogs and recording background and anecdotes about their life.

They have been combined into a promotional book called The Dogs of Sidney by the Sea and is now available.

The anecdotes include favoured pastimes, history, frequented downtown businesses, regular routines and any other endearing characteristics. Most of the pictures were taken in downtown Sidney but some in nearby communities as well.

No book about the dogs of Sidney would be complete without a sample of those hard-working dogs in downtown businesses that welcome customers and maintain a good business tone.

The book is not intended as a money making venture. It is being sold for $9.95, some of which is retained by the vendor and the remainder going to production cost recovery. After costs are recovered, additional proceeds will be donated to the SPCA.

A book launch and signing by the author is planned at Tanners Books on Beacon Avenue on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 2 p.m.
