The Wonderful World of William Wegman’s #Dogs
Nice photo-essay of William Wegman’s weird, wild, wonderful world of dog art in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine!
The Book of #Dogs in Art
I was at the SFMoMA last week, and this simple, elegant little pooch tomé caught my eye — The Book of Dog.
Yeah, okay, it might appear a bit artsy-fartsy on the outside — but you can’t judge a dog book by its cover, right? This elegant catalog was chock full of tasteful portraits and chewy tidbits for any high-or-low-falutin’ dog lover!

Every #Dog Statue Has its Day!
As this Labor Day weekend marks the official end of the dog days of summer, I’ll try to get through my pile of unread New Yorkers — but I’ll probably just skip right to the cartoons, including this classic by Charlie Hankin.
Everybody’s A Fool For #Dogs
Okay, so this book isn’t about dogs — but who can resist any novel that has such a handsome Jack Russell on the cover?
Everybody’s Fool is the follow-up to Richard Russo’s best-selling Nobody’s Fool, which was adapted into the charming 1995 film starring Paul Newman.

Meet The Artist of #Dogs @WilliamWegman
Nice look inside the studio of one of the world’s foremost dog artists, William Wegman, in todays’s New York Times. Also, be sure to check out his masterful collection of dog art books on Amazon…
@BCEnglishDept Color Me #DogsofInstagram — no, Littlefield!
Of course you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I absolutely love the hardcover jacket for The Dogs of Littlefield by Suzanne Berne.
Unfortunately, the story seems to be a rather dark comedy about dogs being poisoned in suburbia — think American Beauty meets My Dog Skip — and we all know what happened to those lead characters…
However, looking on the bright side, if this novel’s writing is as clever as the cover, then I’m sure all readers will be feeling the Berne! (Amazon)
Elias Weiss Friedman is half man, half dog artist…
Meet The Dogist, a world famous Instagram dog photographer! (Amazon)

Time catches up to all of us –– even our loyal dog friends. And if you’ve ever had the privilege of growing older with a pet, you’ve seen there is beauty and dignity in aging, as Pete Thorne documents in his graceful new doggie photo book, Old Faithful: Dogs of A Certain Age.
Those aren’t wrinkles — they’re laugh lines! (Pete Thorne Photo)
Laurie Anderson Plays Free Concert for #Dogs!
Happy New Year! The stock market’s tanking and the El Niño storms are coming in 2016…but at least Laurie Anderson is getting the year off to a positive start — by putting on a free concert for dogs (and their owners) in Times Square tonight! She’s even supplying 350 wireless headsets so humans can enjoy listening to the low-frequency concert with their canine companions. (Rolling Stone)

When families get together over the holidays, some relatives can’t help talking smack — even when it comes to their favorite pet books! So, Carolyn Kellogg of the L.A. Times breaks down this year’s best cat vs. dog book stocking stuffers!
Beloved Dog #Books!
If you’re going to buy just one dog book for the holidays, I’d heartily recommend Maira Kalman’s Beloved Dog. It’s a gorgeous, colorful, witty publication –– and all about the love of a good dog!
And I’m not alone. See the heartwarming reviews in Brainpickings or Modern Dog!
