Synopses & Reviews
Who trembles for you when you are sad, hangs his head when you are mad, and drools on you as if you were the most beautiful, brilliant, and tremendously fragrant of them all? A cat? No, a dog. With all due apology to the cats out there, the title of this book could not be more accurate. Dogs are the most loyal of friends, the most indiscriminate of companions, and the only ones who will always adore you even when you're bad. The dogs featured here range from an Irish Wolfhound named Brennain, who opposes war, fleas, and pills, to a pug puppy named Sydney whose only dislike is reading the daily newspaperso she poops on it instead. Author Jeff Selis's tribute to our slobbery, four-legged friends urges us to follow their lead for awhile and stop thinking about traffic jams and cloudy days and alarm clocks, and instead take time to smell the floweres, the trees...the cute terrier down th street. This books of canine portraits will bring a smile even to those feline types who bitterly wish that T-A-C spelled GOD.
This book began when my master, a truly fine man, decided that we dogs needed a book that celebrates only us. A book about the way we love life without critiquing it. A book that yelps with the spirit and magic of us dogs. Otis, the author's dog
With all due apology to cats, this book of canine portraits is specifically for dog lovers everywhere. Includes features on an Irish Wolfhound named Brennan, a Pug puppy named Sydney, and a host of other four-legged friends. Full-color photos.
