Snog: A Puppy's Guide to Love was another wonderful Rachael Hale photography book featuring puppies and quotes. So some of the quotes were…a little bit odd (in the way I'm not sure they really belonged), but to be honest I didn't open the book for the quotes - I opened it for the puppies. I am such a sucker for these kinds of books. But who can resist those cute faces, ears, tails, and paws, and round wiggly bodies?

I picked up this book from the library because it looks so cute. I couldn't help it. Its a very short book, with short quotes and lots of puppies. NIce and lighthearted, I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn't help but smile, laugh, chuckle and giggle at some of the puppies. There's something about a puppy that you can't help but love... great photography, adorable animals. ^_^ Would make a nice coffee table book.

This is one of the cutest pet art book out there - Rachael Hale does amazing stuff with puppy pictures, and at the end is an index where she says a little something about taking each individual photograph. VERY cute. Got it for a Christmas present and have 'read' it 3 times since then ;)

Eh. Maybe I'm heartless. The puppies were cute of course. However, the lame quotes and overly posed pictures made me realize that wandering through random puppy pictures of flickr would be more satisfying.

Warning: do not look at this book if you are in any way considering buying a dog...these puppies will make you run right out and get one. Too many pure breeds for my taste but darn cute, nonetheless.

The puppy pictures in this booj are adorable. However, the sayings and stories are a bit trite. It would have been better just as a picture book - but really, who can be mad about kissing puppies?

This is the cutest book ever -- I have not actually read the text, since I can't stop looking at the pictures. One adorable puppy after another. This book is a treasure!!!

So cute!

Ran across this the other day helping someone look for cat books...I said, "But dogs are cuter. I mean, just look at this book!!"

I think the title says it all...any dog lover will love this one. Especially if you don't have time to read!
