Publisher Comments:

Featuring sixty black-and-white photographs of old dogs shot by Pulitzer Prizeand#8211;winning photographer Michael S. Williamson and narrated by andlt;iandgt;Washington Postandlt;/iandgt; staffer and columnist Gene Weingarten, this is a perfect collection for dog lovers that celebrates and#8220;manand#8217;s best friend.and#8221;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Anyone who has ever loved an old dog will love andlt;iandgt;Old Dogsandlt;/iandgt;. In this collection of profiles and photographs, Weingarten and Williamson document the unique appeal of man's best friend in his or her last, and best, years. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; This book is a tribute to every dog who has made it to that time of life when the hearing and eyesight begin to go, when the step becomes uncertain, but when other, richer traits ripen and coalesce. It is when a dog attains a special sort of dignity and a charm all his own. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; If you've known a favorite old dog, you'll find him or her on these pages. Your dog might go by a different name and have a different shape, but you'll recognize him or her by the look in an eye or the contours of a life story. There is the dog who thinks he is a house cat; the herder, the fetcher, the punk and the peacock, the escape artist, the demolition artist, the patrician, the lovable lout, the amiable dope, the laughable clown, the schemer, the singer, the daredevil, the diplomat, the politician, the gourmand, and the thief. Plus, as a special bonus, you will find the first Latvian elkhounds ever photographed. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;iandgt;Old Dogsandlt;/iandgt; is a glorious gift book and a fitting tribute to that one dog you can't ever forget.

Beautifully photographed, this photo essay book is addictive. I picked it up intending to flip through it, and ended up reading the entire thing in the store (then bought a copy at Christmas for everyone I know who has/had an older dog). Uplifting, sweet and heartbreaking all at once, this absolutely charming book is the best tribute to mans' best friend I could ever think of.
