Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one is a
life diminished. Dogs live with us in a way that no other creature
does. Their contribution to our history has enabled us to be where
we are today. It's a connection that can even have depths beyond
those we have with our own species.
For all dog lovers, The Life and Love of Dogs offers
hundreds of incredible images by acclaimed photographers from
around the world. A textual exploration of our unique relationship
with dogs-including a surprising analysis of the qualities that
make a dog attractive in our eyes, a detailed look at how the
breeds we see today are a product of our own needs and desires, and
more-it sheds original light on this great love affair.
