Floofing Good Fun

(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through Library Thing's Early Reviewers program.)

Pet photographer Amanda Jones has released several books of canine photography, but Unleashed represents a bit of a departure. Here she says au revoir to the studio, instead capturing her doggo subjects out and about in the wild: retrieving sticks, chasing balls, clowning around with friends, catching some rays beachside, and stopping to smell the roses (errr, hydrangeas?).

The photos are organized by season, with spreads for spring, summer, fall, and winter. To no one's surprise, the autumn backdrops are among the most gorgeous - but even bleak, chilly winter days are vastly improved by the addition of a pupper or two.

Finnick sez, "Don't get any ideas, human."

It's hard to choose just one favorite dog (among the best problems, I say), but my favorite subgroups are 1) little dogs doing Big Things



and b) BFFs teaming up to conquer the world (or at least playtime).

I mostly loved the photos and found many of them poster-worthy, although the colors on a few felt a little washed out.

The layout is pretty rad, with a mock dog collar belted around the cover of the book. (I like it when artists pay attention to the cover hidden under the dust jacket, too. Naked covers are so boring!)

Don't mind Mags, she's camera-shy. By which I mean she thinks it's h*ckin evil.
------------------------------

If I could change just one thing, it would be to add a brief write-up about the model and setting. I need to know more about these awesome doggos and heart-stopping, seemingly dog-friendly destinations.

...

Okay, I lied.

Truman. Truman is my favorite dog.
