An affectionate portrait of British clergy and their dogs, capturing the eccentricities of the owners and the many and varied charms of their pets. From England to Scotland, inner-city churches to country parishes, pedigrees to mongrels, these photographs capture the immense diversity of the human-canine relationship. Among the portraits are Reverend Pat Hopkins and Misty, his river-swimming Rottweiler, and Father Richard Williams and his standard poodle, Jimmy, who faithfully attends all his services. With distinctive photography of both the dogs and their respective people in and around the churches they serve, this is a great gift and a fascinating insight into the lives of today's clergy—and their dogs.
