Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joining their owners at cafés, in shops, and just about everywhere else, dogs have always had a special place in French life. In The French Dog, bestselling animal photographer Rachael McKenna (née Hale) has captured a host of unforgettable dogs—dachshunds, poodles, Labradors, bulldogs, and more—in a variety of stunning locations, from stately chateaux to chic Paris addresses to cobblestoned streets in quiet villages.

A follow-up to the popular book The French Cat, this photographic exploration of the captivating canines of Rachael’s adopted home also shares her experience living in a new country with her young family. Artwork and quotes from famous French dog lovers and literary greats are also included, making this an irresistible read for Francophiles and dog lovers alike.

"The idea behind Rachael Hale’s stunning new photography book is simple: Everything looks better in France." Metro

“It’s the next best thing to a trip to France with your dog in tow.” —Modern Dog Magazine
