Product description

Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way that its animals are treated." How people regard older animals is especially revealing. Beautiful Old Dogs honour our senior best friends and explores their current state of care and custody. This book is inspired by the exquisite photography of Garry Gross, a noted fashion photographer during the 60s, 70s and 80s who, after becoming a highly successful dog trainer in New York City, turned his camera lens towards dogs. Gross, along with Victoria Stilwell from It's Me or the Dog, founded Dog Trainers of New York in 2002, and became devoted to highlighting the plight and value of senior dogs. "The older the better," Gross said. "Dogs with soul in their eyes." The book also includes a practical resource guide for those wishing to learn more about caring for senior dogs. David Tabatsky, the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul's, The Cancer Book: 101 Stories of Courage, Support and Love, has curated a selection of moving, insightful, and uplifting essays by a range of writers, with contributions from Anna Quindlen, Ally Sheedy, Dean Koontz, Marlo Thomas, and many more. See the photos. Read the words. Go online. Make a call. Save a dog. Redeem yourself.
