The Dogist Puppies by Elias Weiss Friedman

Pub Date 19 Sep 2017
Who doesn't love puppies? Soft cuddly bundles of fun are always wonderful to watch, whether they are playing, exploring or simply sleeping. The Dogist Puppies is a charming book, filled with pictures of many different popular breeds, pure and mixed, as well as lesser known breeds. Friedman uses the book to advocate responsible care and highlight some of the specialized methods used to raise and train service dogs. The Dogist: Puppies is an informative book filled with pictures of adorable puppies. It’s only weakness is that most of the pictures are of puppies standing still. I prefer action shots that showcase more of a puppy’s natural exuberance and personality. This book is a perfect gift - charming, inoffensive, and not overly personal. I liked it, but it didn't create an emotional response. I didn't laugh or grin the way I do when pictures have more personality. The f...

Little Kids and Their Big Dogs is an absolutely charming photo collection that animal lovers and families will greatly enjoy. Each of the breathtaking action shots showcase the sheer joy that comes when children and dogs play together. These beautiful gentle giants are playmates, loving companions and protectors. It is easy to see the love they have for their young friends. The text that accompanies each set of pictures is wonderful. The children and dogs speak sweetly and gently with each other. There is love and respect. The dogs are noble, as well as generous of heart.
Seliverstoff’s photos are amazing. The photos eloquently capture the magnificence of these large exotic breeds as they joyfully run, leap and frolic with small children. I especially loved the wiry furred wolfhound and the puli with the long gorgeous dreadlocks.
Many photo books delight in the adorable antics of puppies, while passing over our beloved seniors. While advanced in age, and not always perfect in form, older dogs have a unique beauty and nobility born of the many days spent at our sides. Whether working, playing, or simply snoozing in the sun, Nancy LeVine's photos capture the wondrous and varied nature of senior dogs. Her photos are moving pieces that give readers not only a sense of the dog's personality but the environment in which they live. The landscape is as varied as the dogs included. There are even several greyhounds. (Two elderly retired greys are part of our family so we always enjoy seeing greys being included)
If you are a dog lover or if you have friends who are dog lovers this lovely photo book is an excellent choice.

Unlikely Friendships: Dogs is a simply charming collection of uplifting pictures and stories that will bring a smile to your face, whether or not you are a dog lover. The immense variety of inter species friendships demonstrate how dogs and other animals are capable of compassion, forming nurturing mutually beneficial relationships. It also shows that animals are at times even more than "human" in their honesty and willingness to give. Some of the dogs featured are working dogs, while others are household pets who have behaved in amazing ways.
The stories are a true delight - From Razor the dachshund and Tillie the setter, who each managed to alert their owners that a fellow canine friend needed help, to the charming bond between the two legged chihuahua Roo and his best friend Penny, a silky chicken. It...
Insiders know that shelter pups make the best pets, but often it is difficult to see their personalities as you browse the cages at a shelter. Guinnevere Shuster's beautiful pictures demonstrate the vibrant personalities of a wide variety of dogs at the Humane Society of Utah. Each page holds four candid pictures of an adoptable pup. Often hilarious or stunningly cute, Shushter's pictures show dogs filled with hopeful energy, ready to have a new chance at a happy life. There is even a section of pictures at the end where some of the dogs who were adopted are shown with their new families.
Dog pictures that are adorable and funny and stories with happy endings - what more could a dog lover ask for in a photo book? I absolutely loved Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth. It is a book guaranteed to make any dog lover smile.
