i recently lost Frankie, my fourteen year old schnauzer. Frankie was loyal and true, and to the end of his life, he was happiest sleeping under the dining room table at my feet. this book was the perfect salve for my heart, which has been broken since Frankie's death. the photographs by Garry Gross were absolutely stunning, and the essays were touching, and beautifully curated by author, David Tabatsky. i'm going to be buying this book as a christmas present for all of my friends who love dogs.

As I sat down with my copy of "Beautiful Old Dogs" there was something perfectly poetic that a white-faced 13 year old rescued pitbull lay snoring against my side. I have to admit my first thought was "I, of all people, need no reminding how beautiful and amazing senior dogs are" but from the pages poured such passion for this demographic of animals that I began to appreciate my old girl even more-something I didn't know was possible.

I was most touched by the photographs taken by late fashion photographer and dog trainer Garry Gross, who sought "dogs with soul in their eyes." His mission to capture all that he saw in these dogs in order to advocate on their behalf is certainly fulfilled by this book with the support of the personal, poignant, and at times humorous anecdotes by a cast of merry dog-lovers including renown singer/actress Doris Day, novelist Dean Koontz, and playwright Eugene O'Neil.

The last pages of this book are devoted to resources to aid those less fortunate animals, perhaps simply discarded because people can be blind to the aged beauty that Gross fought so hard to share. From "Adopt A Senior Pet" to "The White Muzzle Fund" this information turns "Beautiful Old Dogs" into much more than just a touching collection of words and images. In fact, I think it truly supports Gross's vision by using art to awaken our hearts and then providing the information so we can do something about it. It's pretty easy to start by simply sharing this book, you never know what a difference it will make in the life of an old dog.

This is a beautiful and touching tribute to senior dogs. I bought the book as a present for my wife after reading a positive review in a magazine. My wife loves it. And yes, we have an old dog and she is beautiful. This is a great read for dog lovers. Highly recommend.

To me, there's nothing more exquisite on this earth than an old dog, and Beautiful Old Dogs is a touching and beautifully crafted tribute to them. With gorgeous photos and lovely stories from both famous and unknown dog lovers, this book would be a slam-dunk gift for any dog lover, especially those with senior dogs. I've got it on my coffee table now and everyone picks it up! ~ Melanie Monteiro, author of The Safe Dog Handbook

Precious and touching stories of senior dogs who are considered to be disposable by society, yet they have so much to give. Speaking from experience, owner of old golden retrievers for years. Well done book , excellent photos and tribute.

Beautifully edited, well designed with high-quality printing, these portraits of life-long companions and family members at the epilogue of their lives is stunning. And deeply moving. We all like pictures of puppies, and stories of good dogs, but there is grace and profundity in these elders. Every dog owner should wish their friend could be so celebrated.
