The Dogist - Puppies
The Dogist Puppies by Elias Weiss Friedman Artisan Books Artisan Home & Garden 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 first Dogist book was definitely better.

I received a copy of The Dogist Puppies from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
The Dogist Puppies, the follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Dogist, is a beautiful, funny, and endearing look at puppies. And with their sweet faces, soft bellies, and oversized paws, the puppies in The Dogist Puppies make this book even more irresistible than Friedman’s first one! Presented documentary-style, every portrait tells a story and explores each puppy’s distinct character and spirit. The book presents a gallery of puppy portraits arranged into themes including Ears, Big Paws, the Cones of Shame, Learning to Walk, and Fancy Outfits, giving every dog lover something to pore over. With the author’s 2.4 million and growing Instagram followers, The Dogist Puppies is poised to reach a large audience of puppy lovers looking for the perfect gift book this holiday season.
