Book ~ "Underwater Puppies" (2014) Seth Casteel

From Goodreads ~ The world fell in love with swimming canines in Seth Casteel's first book, Underwater Dogs. Now, in more than 80 previously unpublished portraits of underwater puppies, we see man's best friends at their most playful and exuberant. Each vibrant and colorful underwater image shows off the wild and sublime range of emotions of puppies, cute and irresistible to the very last.

I like puppies ... I like pictures ... I like pictures of puppies so this book caught my eye.

Casteel photographed more than 250 dogs for his book Underwater Dogs, most of whom had never been underwater before or even been swimming.  In this book, he focused on puppies in water.

It was important to Casteel to feature adoptable and adopted puppies in this book to remind people that adopting a rescue puppy is a fantastic option when bringing a puppy into your life.  The puppies photographed in the book were ages six weeks to six months when he swam with them.  Though puppies apparently know how to swim even at just a few weeks old, each one received swimming lessons to help them prepare for this book.  The puppies were cute and looked like they were having fun.  

It's a quick read as it's just pictures, both full colour and black and white ... but it was a fun book.
