They come in small packages and as the photos show, they pack a lot of adorableness per pound. They're Lightweights--small puppies on big antique scales, an irresistible photo gift book. Sharon Montrose, author of the popular Dogtionary and Cationary, is an acclaimed photographer of dogs. Here she's focused her attention on the smallest puppies--all less than eight weeks old, some weighing under a pound--and highlighted their distinctive diminutiveness by posing them on a variety of antique scales. Sixty color and sepia-toned portraits, with each puppy's name, breed, age, and weight, make this strikingly designed gift book a weighty entry in the "must-have" category of dog books.
Offers a collection of more than eighty photographs of puppies in the first few weeks of life, from a fourteen ounce tea cup Chihuahua named Lola to a a sixteen pound, nine ounce Siberian husky named Red.
