this is a book of photographs of dogs and their favorite toys.and it doesn't get much better than that.

Scott bought this for me for Christmas. It is one of the best presents I've ever received. Of course, you've got to love dogs and feel all gooey about them...

I have been wanting to just savour this book, but with all the book club books I've got going on and then the memoirs for the radio show I've got to read, I never had the time. Having just read 4 books back to back for work, I brought this to bed a couple of nights ago and just took my time with it.

What a gift.

In an age of scaled down economic expectations, it should not be surprising that coffee table books are getting scaled down too. This book of dog portraits taken with their favoritie toys, is a wonderful little book for any dog lover. A few years ago it would have been twice as large physically and three or four times the price. At $14.95, the message comes across wonderfully without breaking the bank. Highly recommended, but don't expect anything more than many smiles and a few "ahhhhs."

This was absolutely cute!! I read it in a half hour. There is just a paragraph about each dog with their object of affection. Very cute!

A short pictorial volume showing dogs with their favorite beat-up toys. The blurbs about each dog are sometimes awkwardly written, but hey, cute dogs!
