Description
From the prestigious American Kennel Club and its official publication, the AKC Gazette, here is a heartwarming tribute to our cherished canine companions. In unforgettable words and images, Our Dogs beautifully captures the enduring bond between dogs and the owners who love them. More than one hundred lavish, full-color photographs are accompanied by thoughtful pieces from an array of respected writers--from Rick Bass, Breena Clark and Jane Smiley, to Roger Rosenblatt, Doug Marlette, and many, many others. Along with top dog trainers and breeders, they pay tribute to the loyalty, enthusiasm, vitality, and grace of dogs of every breed. Our Dogs celebrates so much of what draws us to these exceptional animals: the essence and exuberance of puppyhood; the selfless ways dogs act in service to humankind, from courageous search and rescue missions to giving comfort to those in hospitals and nursing homes; the wonderful variety of canine moods and behavior--the raised eyebrow, the unfettered joy of a wagging tail; the fascinating role of canine instinct, from the hunting dog in the field to the herding dog gathering a stray lamb back to the flock; and the simple yet unparalleled healing bond that that exists between dogs and humans. The perfect gift for dog lovers everywhere, this gorgeously designed volume honors the timeless appeal of man's best friend.
