Shake Puppies

We rated this book:


Professional photographer Carli Davidson had a unique idea of photographing puppies in the act of shaking. She followed through in her studio using sixty-four puppy models, and selecting two photos of each, reproducing them on facing pages of Shake Puppies. This is her second book with the same idea. Devoted dog lovers may enjoy this book but most would get tired of the photos rather quickly. Although some are funny as we see jowls, ears and furs flapping, viewing half a dozen we realize that all are very similar and we are ready to quit this volume. The photos are nice as expected from a professional photographer with uniform plain background of varying color with no household clutter to distract but the models become too monotonous and the charm is soon gone. Davidson has a brief introduction telling her story about her love of dogs and her plead to readers to adopt one from a shelter. The book ends with a two-page instruction on how to train your dog, and sixty-four tiny photos of each model, its name and its age. Unfortunately the pages are not numbered thus it’s hard to refer to a favorite photo or two.
