A very nice combination of photos of dogs and humans by Art Wolfe with text by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson. Photos are taken all over the world, though there are certainly more from the U.S. than anywhere else, and many from Asian locales, especially Bhutan.

Mostly a picture book of people all over the world with their dogs, it's also a love poem, of sorts, for dogs and their humans. Art Wolfe, the award-winning photographer, turns his camera on dogs rather than wildlife to an extraordinary means.

Really fun beautiful book, showing the human-dog bond.
