Author : William J Fielding, Jane Mather
"""Description: The dog population in the Bahamas consists mainly of mongrels, called ""Potcakes,"" a term unique to the greater Bahamas archipelago. Potcakes provides the first systematic study of dog ownership in a Caribbean society by investigating the Bahamian perceptions of ""pet"" and ""responsible pet ownership"" in the context of both dog overpopulation concerns and how ""image"" dogs like Rottweilers and Pit Bulls have interacted with and altered the Potcake population."""
