From the writer and photographer who brought us the bestselling "Cattitude" series comes a uniquely canine perspective on living the good life. Through chraming photographs and clever aphorisms, Dogplay: The Canine Guide to Being Happy takes a light-hearted look at how our four-legged friends embrace the everyday and maintain their eternal optimism.
Whether it's advice about enjoying food ("Tap into the mind/body/snack connection"), appreciating the simple things ("Don't microanalyze every nice breeze that comes your way"), or de-stressing ("Never miss an appointment with a couch"), these words of canine wisdom are sure to ring true for human readers as well. Kim Levin's signature black-and-white photography and Christine Montaquila's insightful humor make this adorable book a must-have for any dog lover, or anyone who needs a reason to smile.
