Large or small, dogs have a way of bringing out the best in people

Large or small, dogs have a way of bringing out the best in people.

From the bestselling author of Inside of a Dog- an incredible journey into the olfactory world of man’s best friend. Readers will finish this book feeling that they have broken free of their human constraints and understanding smell as never before; that they have, for however fleetingly, been a dog. And, as The Boston Globe says about Being a Dog, becoming more doglike, not surprisingly, can make anyone’s life a little more vivid.

You may have heard the expression that dogs 'see with their noses. But these creature's amazing nasal architecture actually reveals a whole world beyond what we can see. Alexandra Horowitz illustrates how the dog's nose can smell the past, the future and even things that can't be seen at al.

Few dogs are as emotionally engaging or physically elegant as the greyhound. Its unmatched fleetness is key to the breed's longtime survival. Visit the Barbara Karant author page. Author of The Lovely Bones and The Almost Moon.

Horowitz introduces the reader to dogs’ perceptual and cognitive abilities and then draws a picture of what it might be like to be a dog. What’s it like to be able to smell not just every bit of open food in the house but also to smell sadness in humans, or even the passage of time? How does . What’s it like to be able to smell not just every bit of open food in the house but also to smell sadness in humans, or even the passage of time? How does a tiny dog manage to play successfully with a Great Dane?

Alexandra Horowitz describes dogs as "anthropologists among us", and in this engaging book, her first, she studies them with the same intensity and affection that they devote to us. She has her own dogs.

Horowitz began her career observing rhinos and bonobos, which are apparently much more respectable.

Presents one hundred photographs of canines of all sizes which celebrate the differences and similarities between large and tiny dogs, in a volume complemented by quotes on size and humorous charts.

This is a wonderful book of fun dog photos that really illustrate the diversity of breeds. The dogs are paired by greatly contrasting sizes, shapes, colors, etc. against white backgrounds, in semi-formal portrait style. I say "semi-formal" because it's obvious the dogs are having trouble staying still. At the same time, they seem to be thoroughly enjoying their photo sessions. Very clever! This is a perfect book for someone who loves dogs, or appreciates a great photo.

It's a great book of photos, and all appear to have been taken in a studio so there are no candids. Dogs make great pics!

If you are a lover of dogs or a lover of art, this book is for you. The dogs themselves are, of course, charming and funny. The photographs are amazing. From the way the dogs are grouped (size, color, coat pattern, etc.) to the camera angle, the pictures will captivate you. Karant has a keenly artistic eye for photographing man's best friend. This is a delightful book for people of all ages.

I love this book and not just because my two dogs are in it! I purchased many books to give as gifts to my many dog-loving friends and family. Barbara's photographs capture all that we love about our dogs- dogs of all shapes and sizes. The photographs are spontaneous, whimsical, funny and creative. Watching Barbara work with the dogs she photographed was mind-boggling. I was amazed at her patience, flexibility and ability to get the dogs to relax and to trust her enough to just be themselves. The end result speaks to her amazing abilities as a photographer. I am thrilled to have been a part of this project. I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who loves dogs and who loves beautiful photographs!

If you love animals you really need to see this book. I find myself paging though it over and over. There is always something else to notice, the look in a tiny dogs eyes, the beautiful pattern on a coat here. The expression of pure joy there. The mix of pattern and colors is amazing.

I wonder how she got all of those different dogs to work together without having screaming fits. I is clear by the self assured expressions that there are several Princes and Princess in the mix.

Thank you for such an enjoyable ride.
