The Year of the Dog by Vincent Musi

The Year of the Dog is a beautiful book. It’s one I will keep on the coffee table and can recommend it as a Christmas gift for any dog lover. Gorgeous photos with accompanying stories about each dog.

Vincent Musi is a National Geographic photographer who was frequently in challenging situations photographing tigers, lions and other wildlife in the field.  When he decided to suspend travel to be with his family for a year he took up a challenge of opening a studio exclusively for dog portraits.

This heavy and lovely book is the result.  The photo below reminds me of our old chow Sally.  I wanted to share at least one dog profile so you could see one of the photos and format.

Again, if you are a dog lover you’ll love looking through this book and reading about each animal.
