Publisher Comments:

Who enters the world with the faintest inkling

There's anything wrong with spontaneous tinkling?

How do puppies see the world? Each other? Us? What do young dogs really think? What are the rites of passage from puppyhood to doghood? I Am Puppy, Hear Me Yap is a fascinating collection of more than fifty delightful and witty photographs by Valerie Shaff, whose portraits are unique in their uncanny ability to capture the essence of each young dog and puppy. Roy Blount Jr.'s incomparable text brings these pups hilariously to life, and he comes as close to capturing the inner thoughts of canines as any human can. Together, Shaff and Blout take us to the brink of understanding the different ages of dogs.What's that? I've got

Dirt on my tongue?

insights into what puppies and young dogs really think

The images, accompanied by Blount's puppy poetry, with the "canine measure somewhere between ordered and free," make this book a delight for dog lovers and, until dogs learn to talk, the best way to understand the "inner puppy" in all of them.
