A nationally syndicated humorist and a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer collaborate on this elegantly illustrated portrait book for anyone who has ever loved an old dog.
• Portraits and prose that conjure fond memories: Old dogs: gray of muzzle, graceless of gait, eccentric of habit, wheezy, lazy, and lumpy. The old dog is funny, and seems to know it. In his introductory essay and fifty short character studies, Washington Post humorist Gene Weingarten captures the true charm and dignity of dogs ten years old and over.
• An elegant gift book filled with beautiful photographs: Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Michael S. Williamson has contributed sixty classic black-and-white portraits of sweet old dogs, from mutts to purebreds, little Pomeranians to big Bloodhounds, junkyard dogs to dogs that live in the lap of luxury.
• Based on a popular website: The authors’ website, OldDogsBook.com, is a gathering place for people who love old dogs. Readers sent in photos of their perfectly imperfect pooches to be selected for the book and will continue to use the website to share stories and images of their best friends.
