Show Dogs




I've got a bit of puppy fever.  No thanks to all the amazing pooches I get to see frequently (Charlie, Lucy, Dubs, Canubs, Bentley), or the fact that I've volunteered a few times at PAWS.  Then there's the fact that we just might be getting a pooch of our own once we are all moved and settled. But these pictures, I just can't get enough.

Photographer Kate Lacey created a guide book to dog breeds that has captured personality through the photograph.  She has simply let the dog's speak for themselves.  You can see the pride, playfulness, adoration and curiosity showing through these different breeds of dogs.  There is no commentary in the book other than the dog's name and breed.  Who doesn't love a well made pictorial book featuring adorable pooch after adorable pooch?!

You can buy a copy of Show Dogs : A Photographic Breed Guide by Kate Lacey here.

Where's the Cairn Terrier (aka, best dog ever)?

I've got puppy fever too, which is a problem since we already have 2 dogs!

Oh no, this is sure to incite crazy animal fever in our house! I'm begging John for a French bulldog, a kitten, even a French Lop bunny-I'm desperate for a furry companion!

These guys are too cute!! I had serious puppy fever for years before we could get our little monster so I know how you feel. And actually I get puppy fever all the time thinking about getting her a little sister to play with, shhh don't tell husband ;)
Are you moving soon? I hope you won't have to wait too much longer for your little pup.

My favorite thing in the whole wide world .. is to take pictures of dogs! They are soo fun to take pictues of, and they all have such different personalities!

Johanna March 30, 2011 at 4:42 PM  

Ha ha..I love it and so colorful, too. I'm thinking you need a pup of your own!

What a fantastic book! I love the first dog.
I am a bit partial to spitz types of breeds!
Cheers!!

haha love these! so funny how you can see a little bit of their personalities in the pics!

I am so utterly obsessed with dogs so this post is satisfying my dose of adorable dog withdrawals for the day. This photographer definitely captured the personality and character of the dogs. Love the colored background too.

Mel March 31, 2011 at 2:53 PM  

Oh those Mastiffs....love!

christine donee March 31, 2011 at 3:31 PM

(and secretly - ok now not so secretly - makes me think of "Best In Show" and it's hilarious antics.
