Old Dogs : Are the Best Dogs, Hardback Book

Old Dogs : Are the Best Dogs Hardback

Hardback

Description

The memories that people have of dogs they have loved and lost are almost always of the animal in his final years; somehow, those are the images we treasure most.

There is a reason. Old dogs can be rheumy-eyed and grump, gray of muzzle, graceless of gait, eccentric of habit, pimply, wheezy, lazy, lumpy.

But that is not the whole of him. The old dog is resolute. He is canny. He is noble. She is funny, and seems to know it. She is sweetly vulnerable. He has character and dignity and an elegance of bearing that belies his circumstances, and above all, he seems at peace.

You'd call that wisdom, if it didn't sound so silly.

Old Dogsis a portrait book featuring 60 classic black and white photographs of sweet old dogs-Michael Williamson has photographed store-front dogs, mutts, elegant purebreds, junkyard dogs, little dogs, and big dogs.

With their stories-sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and sometimes uplifting-- told by Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post, the old dogs featured in this book will captivate any dog lover.
