9780091913663: 101 Salivations: For the Love of Dogs

For thousands of years, the dog has been at the centre of our affections. Over the centuries - from the wolves who first tentatively ventured close to the camp fire to the devoted little bundles of fluff that snuggle at our feet today - dogs have been man's oldest friends. Inspired by the love for - and from - her own dog, Rachael Hale has collected a stunning array of images of our canine companions. She photographed a myriad of hound shapes and sizes, heights and girths, shaggy coats and wiry curls - and, most importantly, the unique characters hidden beneath them. The secret to capturing a dog's soul is to focus on their eyes - whether they are wide and shining, or heavy-lidded, in the throes of slumber. Within this book you will see the soul of your own 'best buddy' staring back at you. It could be in the drowsy gaze of Spence the languid Labrador Retriever, or in the perky grin of Sox the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. You may catch a glimpse of it under the Rastafarian dreadlocks of the Puli or in the flashing dark eyes of Sasha the smiling Samoyed. The portraits also show another side of dogs who have been given unjust reputations. Just take a look at the tenderness of Loki, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, with a sleeping kitten on his head. 101 Salivations is a charming tribute to the animals who have stood by us for centuries and continue to be our best friends, and will capture the hearts of dog-lovers everywhere.

About the Author:

Rachael Hale is one of the world's leading animal portrait photographers. Her images have been published on greetings cards, calendars, posters and stationery around the world. She lives in Auckland, New Zealand, with her three cats Edmund, Gianni and Versace.

From Publishers Weekly:

Anyone who loves dogs knows that they have their own unique personalities-they may be brave or timid, placid or hyper-but they're always soulful. In this collection of 101 arresting four-color portraits, Hale manages to capture the essential doggishness of her subjects, whether it's Hamish the Chihuahua's minuscule, quizzical face or the quiet intelligence of Loki, a Staffordshire bull terrier mix, sitting patiently with a kitten on his head. Though there are a few gratuitous props-a knitted cap on a Gordon setter, a pearl necklace on a Chinese Crested-the photographs don't descend into the realm of the kitschy and too-cute, partly because the dogs' expressive faces are the focus of the compositions. Hale tosses a few relevant quotes into the mix as well, e.g., Walt Whitman's "The dog is the god of frolic," and P.G. Wodehouse's "It is fatal to let any dog know that he is funny, for he immediately loses his head and starts hamming it up." The appendix, which gives a brief description of each dog's story, adds dimension to the photographs. We learn, for example, that Jabba, an eight-year-old pit bull, is just as shy as she looks. During the shoot, Hale says, she "ran terrified from the room...frightened by a fly."
