Combat Black Dog Syndrome worldwide; a portion of all proceeds from Black Dog Project will be donated to black dog rescue. One of Tumblr's most viral blogs of 2014, the Black Dogs Project is a stunning photo series by animal photographer Fred Levy. Known as "Black Dog Syndrome" in animal shelters and rescues, it refers to the unfortunate phenomenon that black dogs are frequently the LAST dogs to be adopted and the FIRST dogs to be euthanized in rescue shelters. Animal photographer Fred Levy couldn't believe that it was true, so he began talking with shelters. Not only does the phenomen exist, but he discovered it's an epidemic. Levy decided to turn his camera lens to black dogs, showing the world how beautiful they truly are. He called the photo series, The Black Dogs Project, and the stunning photographs have been shared worldwide, spreading awareness and attention to the problem. A portion of all proceeds for Black Dogs Project will be donated to black dog rescue.
When David Rosenfelt first met his wife, Debbie, he also met her golden retriever, Tara... and he fell head over heels for both of them. Many years later, inspired by Tara, David and Debbie have dedicated their lives to rescuing thousands of unloved and unwanted dogs - sometimes living with up to 40 dogs at any one time. So here is the book dedicated to the inspirational canine who started it all, and taught David everything he knows. (Well, he did know how to tie his shoes before he met and came to love Tara, but that's about it.) Through Tara, David learned about dating, about being able to share his emotions, and also about everyday stuff like who gets to use the pillow if several dogs are sleeping in your bed (clue: It's not the human) and why random barking will never be something that can be eliminated. Lessons From Tara is infused with David's wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, and will move readers to tears and laughter.
When Judith Summers's husband and father both died within the space of two weeks, she found herself floundering. Life for her and her eight-year-old son Joshua seemed relentlessly bleak. Then George bounced into their lives. A loving Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with film-star looks, George reawoke their joie de vivre. Yet Judith soon discovered that living with George had its drawbacks. He was a full-time job and as expensive to run as a Ferrari. Wilful and badly behaved, he refused to eat anything other than roast chicken, preferred travelling by car to walking, and became as jealous as a spurned lover if any man dared show an interest in her. And when a near-death tangle with a Staffordshire Bull terrier resulted in costly sessions with an animal psychologist, Judith found that it was she who was put on the couch . . .

relationships with them so meaningful.

Socrates left no philosophical writings himself, but luckily he had a dog called Ted who faithfully learnt and interpreted his sayings. Through Ted and his canine friends, and with reference to famous philosophers, readers learn how dogs interpret the world. In the book, the canine characters reveal why they obey humans, what their view on freedom is, what they think about cats, what makes them happy and what makes them suffer. With humour and doggy wisdom, along with a bit of help from philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and Diogenes, Ted and his friends reflect on friendship, love and life. Fully illustrated throughout, this picture book for adults explores important issues in a humorous and thoughtful way. Like Charlotte Fraser's Dog, Teresa's book contains many witty and heartwarming ideas, and the book can also be likened to Rupert Fawcett's Off the Leash. The characters are simultaneously funny and serious in this book packed with irony, humour and playfulness which will appeal to dog owners and amateur philosophers alike.

First we had dogs underwater, then dogs shaking off water... so why not dogs soaking up the exhilarating no-holds-barred pleasure of a car ride? Photographer Lara Jo Regan began her pet project as a calendar, but the response was overwhelming and absolute: Her photographs of the cruising canines, taken from incredible perspectives, with tongues hanging and ears flapping, became a global Internet sensation.
The energy of the photographs is impressive and visceral. In order to get these shots, Regan built a special light, which jutted out over the roof of the car, a harness that allowed her to lean out of the window, and various other contraptions to make the images come to life. This book will make you laugh out loud and want to share it with everyone you know. It s full speed happiness."
"The Companion Species Manifesto" is about the implosion of nature and culture in the joint lives of dogs and people, who are bonded in "significant otherness." In all their historical complexity, Donna Haraway tells us, dogs matter. They are not just surrogates for theory, she says; they are not here just to think with. Neither are they just an alibi for other themes; dogs are fleshly material-semiotic presences in the body of technoscience. They are here to live with. Partners in the crime of human evolution, they are in the garden from the get-go, wily as Coyote. This pamphlet is Haraway's answer to her own "Cyborg Manifesto," where the slogan for living on the edge of global war has to be not just "cyborgs for earthly survival" but also, in a more doggish idiom, "shut up and train."
