By Reader Writer Runner TOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 30 2013
Format: Hardcover
A warning to would-be dog owners: after one flip through "The Spirit of the Dog," there's no turning back!

With astounding photos by Astrid Harrison and loving prose, this book beautifully captures our canine companions and explains the unbreakable bond between human and dog. It examines more than 100 breeds, from the popular Labs and Border Collies to the more obscure Ibizian Hound, discussing behavioural traits, cultural significance and history.

Art historian and animal expert Tamsin Pickeral divides the book into eight chapters including "elegance and speed," "beauty and endurance," and "agility and wisdom." This allows the dogs' personalities to shine through, capturing and warming even the non-dog lover's heart.

By Barbara J. Ransom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A beautiful book - especially the Whippet on the cover (my granddog)! I loved every page. My grandkids (one of whom I'm hoping will be a vet) have read itt from cover to cover also.

Tamsin Pickeral and Astrid Harrisson have created a gorgeous illustrated work of art for the dog world. The book is full of interesting facts and fascinating information, unique to each breed. Astrid Harrisson did capture the spirit of the dog with her stunning and creative photographs. This book is a must have for anyone who loves dogs. The book is outstanding.

The photos are wonderful. Enough text for a coffee table book. Adored by my whole family, a book you pick up while enjoying some quiet time but also a good book to share with my grandson.
