Book ~ "Hound for the Holidays" (2005) Kim Levin and John O'Neill

From Goodreads ~ This holiday season, let's remember the things that really matter. So begins Kim Levin and John O'Neill's Hound for the Holidays a warm reminder from man (and woman's) best friend to hold loved ones dear at this special time of the year. 

The holidays (like dogs) are all about sharing, unconditional love, and enjoying the moment, but sometimes, with the hubbub of shopping, open houses, family gatherings, and parties, it's easy to lose that holiday spirit. 

So who better to put the happy back in holidays than a cast of dogs celebrating the season? Whether they are two pooches window-shopping, an urbane Jack Russell on a trip to the big city, or a German Shepherd catching snowflakes on his tongue, the dogs in these charming photos all deliver the message Enjoy! 

Pet portrait artist Kim Levin's striking and expressive photos pair perfectly with John O'Neill's warm and upbeat words to make a great holiday treat.

I love dogs!

This book is full of black and white pictures of dogs celebrating the Christmas holidays taken by Kim Levin and with words provided by John O'Neill of Bark & Smile.  It's a quick read ... there's not a lot of words ... but you can't help but linger over the pictures.

My favourite shot was the one that was also on the cover.  This puppy is discovering snow for the first time.  Awwwww!

They have other books focusing on animals ... I'm going to have to check them out!
