Product description

The exuberant, exhilarating photographs of dogs underwater that have become a sensation From the water's surface, it's a simple exercise: a dog's leap, a splash, and then a wet head surfacing with a ball, triumphant. But beneath the water is a chaotic ballet of bared teeth and bubbles, paddling paws, fur and ears billowing in the currents. From leaping Lab to diving Dachshund, the water is where a dog's distinct personality shines through; some lounge in the current, paddling slowly, but others arch their bodies to cut through the water with the focus and determination of a shark. In more than eighty portraits, award-winning pet photographer and animal rights activist Seth Casteel captures new sides of our old friends with vibrant underwater photography that makes it impossible to look away. Each image bubbles with exuberance and life, a striking reminder that even in the most loveable and domesticated dog, there are more primal forces at work. In "Underwater Dogs," Seth Casteel gives playful and energetic testament to the rough-and-tumble joy that our dogs bring into our lives.

A lovely book. I ordered it for my Mum for her birthday as she is an avid dog lover. The book is funny and heartfelt with lovely pictures of dogs of all shapes, sizes and species. It truly made her day having a good look through all the pictures. Its definately worth the order, as its such a joy of a book.
